This module follows RU2201. It is the language track at second level for students who took the beginners' modules (RU1001 and RU1002) at first level. The most important elements of Russian grammar taught in the first year and RU2201 are reinforced in this course, with further points of grammar and syntax. Students will translate passages from English to Russian and develop comprehension skills in response to contemporary audio-visual and online material. Material for translation from Russian to English engages with key historical and cultural events. Spoken Russian is improved through small-group oral tuition classes with a native language instructor.
