Intermediate Russian 2

Please note: this is archived course information from 2022 for RUSSIAN 201.


Course Overview

RUSSIAN 201 follows on from RUSSIAN 200. Students with comparable knowledge may be admitted without the usual prerequisite. The course revises the essential grammar of Russian covered in the first-year course: declension – the forms and meanings of the grammatical cases; conjugation – formation of all types of verbs, verb government, aspect and morphology of verbal adjectives for vocabulary building and mastery of expository Russian. This essential grammar is consolidated through conversation practice, listening comprehension and the reading of a variety of authentic texts. 


Russian at Stage II aims to equip students with a foundation sufficient to develop further proficiency in the language through subsequent independent use of Russian language sources – print and electronic media, general and specialised literature.

If you have no or limited knowledge of Russian please enrol in RUSSIAN 100 or RUSSIAN 100G. 

You will need to complete a Language Proficiency Declaration to ensure you are enrolling in the right course for your level. This will be provided to you through Student Services Online after you have enrolled.
