Intensive Introductory Russian 
RUSS 10004 and 10008

Intensive Introductory Russian is an 8-week course designed to provide students with a comprehensive overview of standard contemporary Russian. Students can expect to achieve novice high to intermediate low proficiency in speaking, reading, writing, and listening and will be introduced to Russian culture and history through authentic texts, audio, film, and Internet activities. The course provides 150 contact hours over 8 weeks, divided into two four-weeks sessions. The RUSS 10004-10008 sequence is equivalent to RUSS 10100-10200-10300 during the regular academic year at the University of Chicago and satisfies the College competency requirement.

Students will explore Russian culture through authentic texts, audio and video, multimedia and Internet activities, and film screenings. The course provides 150 contact hours over an 8-week period, divided into two segments of four weeks each and may be FLAS eligible, depending on the student’s home institution. The RUSS 20004-20008 sequence is the equivalent of the 20100-20200-20300 sequence offered during the regular academic year at the University of Chicago.
