Developed in conjunction with the Russian Flagship Program at Indiana University, the Workshop's Level 3 Russian course is an intensive, immersive program equivalent to 3rd-Year Russian in the Indiana Russian Flagship curriculum.
This course is designed for students with Intermediate Mid proficiency who want to develop advanced speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. Students who complete the course successfully will reach Intermediate High or Advanced Low proficiency.
Working with authentic materials showcasing culture from across the Russian-speaking world, students will improve their mastery of the linguistic and cultural skills they need in order to function effectively in a Russian-speaking environment. They will be able to understand news, videos, podcasts, chats, stories, literature etc. with ease, and to interact confidently with native speakers in a wide range of contexts.
Russian 3 combines 4 hours a day of classroom instruction, 30-45 minutes a day of individualized small group training, providing targeted practice on skills including interpersonal communication, story telling, constructing persuasive arguments, hypothesizing, and managing register. Outside of class, the program offers daily activities in Russian led by facilitators representing Russian-speaking communities from around the world.
