Russian Reading and Composition: Short Fiction
Read entertaining and interesting 20th-century Russian short stories from a variety of genres (detective fiction, satire, tales of adventure, children’s literature) to improve your reading skills and expand your vocabulary. Discussions will help you improve your speaking and listening skills, while writing exercises will facilitate your mastery of the material and develop your skills in composition. Designed to be taken at the same time as RUSS 200, this course will strengthen your grasp of the grammar covered in that course while allowing you to focus on reading techniques and the construction of the complex Russian sentence. Taking the two courses together will enable you to make a significant and leap forward in learning the language. Honors credit available.
NOTE: RUSS 211 is designed to be taken in conjunction with RUSS 200; for Russian Studies majors, minors, and Three-Language majors this course is a necessary part of the course sequence that fully prepares students for the 300-level.
