Students of Russian/Дорогие мои студенты русского языка!
I wanted to post a few things for you to use as you are writing your journals (Russian II/III) and working on your grammar homework and preparing for your first major quiz (Russian I). First for II/III -
- Your homework this weekend is one double-spaced page in your journal using the phrase "Ни пуха, ни пера! К черту!". Remember as you write to apply your knowledge of stems and the one-stem system. I want you to edit and revise. Read and consider - use your knowledge and your notes.
- If you need a dictionary there's this wonderful online resource from Duke - A grammatical dictionary of the Russian language.
- If you would like a reference guide for grammar you can use this - also from Duke and actually from one of the authors of our textbook.
Russian I Students - You should continue working through the exercises on gender as well as studying your vocabulary words in chapter one. In addition to the nouns you should know the possessive pronouns (моя, твое, его, их, наша, ваш) and the question words that we have learned in connection to the intonation patterns. All of these things will be part of your vocabulary quiz on Thursday. Don't forget too that you will have your project presentations on Thursday - is anyone bringing Russian food?
For all of you - here's our video about Кострома which we started in Russian II/III for the warm up - feel free to watch it to the end. Remember our guests will be visiting in about a month!
If you didn't turn in your viewing guide from the Bulgakov film today then you will need to finish that for homework to turn in on Tuesday. In addition, we'll be working on our projects on Tuesday before the due date and presentation on Thursday. Feel free to work on your projects this weekend in preparation for our library workshop on Tuesday. If you do research online, try to save the website addresses so that Ms. Ginocchio and I can show you how to complete your bibliography.
