Very excellent job today on presentations. I especially enjoyed eating pelmeni and getting flowers - you know how to make me feel special! For tonight you need to review for your mid-term examination. For the mid-term we'll be focusing on three big concepts:
- Aspect of verbs in Russian
- Numbers and counting in Russian - be sure to know your currencies and how to count them in Russian.
- Verbs of motion
A good activity is working through what we did today in class. You can also use the online exercises available from the UCLA Beginner's Russian website. Please let me know if you need any help studying and preparing!
I enjoyed the activity today in our mad libs activity. Tonight you need to finish your preparation for the mid-term examination. Make sure that you can work within all six cases in Russian and that you can work with the verbs. If you are able to do this with few to no errors then you're in good shape. There are several online exercises on the UCLA Beginner's Russian website as well - you'll have to pick and choose to see what is most useful for you.
Remember that if you did not present your speech today in class then you will need to present on Wednesday or outside of class. Also, if you didn't have your speech ready to be turned in today, make sure that it is ready for us on Tuesday or Wednesday. For tonight - focus on reviewing for your quiz next class. Study your notes from class and from today's review game.
Also, as promised, here is the video on the Epic Hero Cycle which includes a lot of information to know for your exam.
All of you have assessments next class to finish the quarter - make sure that you do your best work on these to finish strong.
