Join us to review Russian grammar in a cultural context. We will practice the use and comprehension of spoken Russian. This workshop requires previous experience with Russian language. In five weeks you will be able to manage a phone conversation, order a meal in a restaurant, understand and give simple directions and deal with common travel problems. We will read and listen to short biographies and will give an oral presentation on a Russian cultural figure. We will conduct a survey of grammatical cases and idiomatic expressions utilizing them.
