Russian II: Tonight I want you to do some reading in your textbooks for the next grammar point we're going to study - the double negative. In your textbook, read pages 282-285. Be able to answer the following questions:
- When do you use a double negative in Russian? When a single negative?
- How is genitive case used with negation?
- How are the words nobody and nothing declined in all cases.
Once you've done the reading, try the translation assignment. We'll review that on Thursday.

Tonight for homework you have two exercises on using adverbs. In the first exercise you are rewriting the question or sentence and adding in the adverb in a logical space (the word is given to you in the exercise in the adjective form). In the second, you are studying your vocabulary to fill in the blanks. Be able to translate the sentences that you fill in the blanks with.
