Elementary Russian: Лингафонный кабинет... Распорядок дня! Что будем делать сегодня...Урок 3 Неделя 1 Unit 3 Week 1 Какие языки вы знаете?

Привет! Сегодня в лингафонном кабинете...

Material for Unit 3 vocabulary quiz for next Wednesday (November 8, восьмого ноября) is here

А теперь... распорядок дня! Что будем делать? And now, our plans... What are we going to do? 
  1. Pick up этот хендаут... (You can print out this document at home). 
  2. За компьютером... Listen to two разговоры (conversations) and answer questions that you find on the first page of the handout... Listen to each разговор three times! No more, no fewer! Jot down the answers on the хэндаут that you printed in #1. Разговор 2Разговор 3 (15 minutes)
  3. Прослушайте Диалог 4. (Listen to Dialog 4.) The dialogue is on the handout, too! Now, draw lines from the English phrases below the dialogue (#4, 5, 7, 8, 9) to the corresponding Russian in the dialogue. Where in the dialogue, for instance, do you learn how to praise someone's language ability? These phrases will be part of your vocabulary quiz next Wednesday. 
  4. Find a partner or a tutor and READ DIALOG 4 ALOUD!
  5. OK, now: Work through the grammar part of the хэндаут. It's on verbs. Try to conjugate the verb изучать, then write out the answers to Oral Drills 1, 2, and 3. 
So, right? Понятно? You have to listen to a couple разговоры and answer the questions. Then listen to a dialogue and identify the Russian phrases. Read that dialog aloud with a partner. 

And, finally, do the verb exercises! If you don't have time to finish this grammar work on verbs in the lab, you can do it as домашка, homework. But you should start it in the lab so the tutors can answer questions. 

Here's a beautiful, lighthearted song and video by the Russian group ДДТ....

Что такое осень - это небо,
Плачущее небо под ногами.

What's fall? It's a sky,
A weeping sky beneath your feet...
