This course is tailored for students who speak Russian at the level B1 and above.
Within this course we refer to multiple topics:
- Social problems: parents and children relationship, marriage in the modern world, communication in social networks.
- Modern Russian culture: arts, theater, music, cinema and literature.
Part of the course is devoted to well-being, sports and physical culture in Russia.
The unique nature of this course is in the variety of educational materials that capture the most relevant and live stratum of the modern Russian language – the language of media. Here lies an opportunity to get acquainted with live Russian speech, since many media sources retain the features of spontaneous conversation; broaden and master your vocabulary in different styles, thus it is important for proficiency in Russian language.
We use actual news, podcasts and printed content from various media sources for the class and home work. These media provide a lot of video content and illustrations, which helps us keep classes interesting and exciting.
We focus on specific language of Russian social media as well, since they are used in daily communication.
This course we recommend as preparation for the tests of Russian as foreign language: TRKI-2 (B2) and TRKI-3 (C1). At the end of the course students will write a final essay on one of the topics that we’ve discussed in the classes.
If you wish to improve your conversational skills, learn to perceive live Russian speech easily, significantly broaden your vocabulary and master your writing skills, then the course “Language of Media: Evening News” will certainly help you to achieve outstanding results.
