Russian is one of the most boring school subjects for many students. After all, what do they associate with it? Learning vocabulary from a whiteboard, writing dictations, completing arduous drills (“insert the missing letters…”), and memorizing endless rules. But Russian isn’t just rules! This course will help students look at Russian from the perspective that it is exciting, and that solving linguistic problems is just as interesting as reading a mystery novel. Students will discover that even reading the dictionary can be turned into a fun game!
By the end of this course, students will know how to:
