Сегодня в лингафонном кабинете...

Здравствуйте, дорогие студенты! Сегодня 11-II-15. Значит, двенадцатое февраля. Добро пожаловать в лингафонное сообщество! (My lame effort of translating Language Commons...)

Next week... our annual Bliny Blitz!



Во-первых... Сдавайте контрольную! Take your quiz! Тогда... Давайте послушаем! Then, do the following short listening exercise.

Let's have a listen to this recording of your host brother's description of his family. Listen a couple times, then answer the questions below on the back of your quiz. Then... put it in your portfolio...
How many people are in the family? Who are they? What’s the father’s name, and what does he do? What’s the mother do? Who is Nikolai? He’s a student… can you catch the name of the university? Where is it located? What does he study? What language does Nikolai speak? Who is Masha? What does she love? Is she young or old? What is the name of the person who wrote the letter?
For your portfolio essay, you'll write a response, so listen carefully for useful expressions...

For the grammar quiz next week, check out #4 and #5 in our Голоса в Стетсонском Memrise Class. Formation of the genitive plural and the plurals of family members. Hey, remember! Adding material to our Memrise class will gain you extra Memrise points AND credit towards the "extra" work in your portfolio!

Now, садитесь за столы и поработаем вместе! Grab a chair and let's work on Russian! We're going to work on expressing age differences and add the genitive modifiers to our knowledge base.
