Russian 120A: Advanced Russian Conversation

Instructor TBD | M-F 1-2 | 233 Dwinelle | 2 or 3 units

This course focuses on oral communication skills.  The goal is to help students develop confidence and begin to feel comfortable conversing in Russian on various topics beyond routine social and survival needs.  Since communication often breaks down when comprehension is poor, part of the class will be devoted to improving listening skills and building vocabulary.

The course may be taken for two or three credits.  Those students taking the course for two credits will come to class on Mondays and Wednesdays and do the assignments for those days.  Students who sign up for three credits will attend on Fridays as well. Together they will decide on a project (or projects) for the semester.
