ELEMENTARY RUSSIAN... Сегодня в кабинете... Unit 1, Week 3 Language lab


Здравствуйте, ребята! How's it going, guys? Сегодня четырнадцатое сентября. It's the 14th of September...

Полюбуйтесь на новый график репетиторов! Check out the tutoring times in the sidebar! 

Сегодня в кабинете... More or less in this order 


  1. TAKE YOUR QUIZ  
  2. А теперь... Pick up a lab хендаут
  3. Put on your наушники, your headphones... and do the  listening exercise on the sheet, Addresses. Listening for numbers... FOCUS! Do you know how you get better at understanding Russian? Listening to Russian! (If you want to rehash your numbers 1-20, this page is pretty good!... They're also listed at the bottom of this page.)
  4. Look through this PPP on the Prepositional case... Вот что важно... Here's a recap of what's important: [a] Don't forget to remove the ending. We add endings to stems! [b] The ending is usually -e, but when you try to add -e to any noun that ends in -ия, -ие, or -ий, you get -ии as the ending: Германия --> в Германии. [c] And don't forget that Russian treats all foreign toponyms (place names) that end in -о or -и/-ы as indeclinable, that is, they never change. Я живу в Орландо (NO CHANGE!). Когда вы закончите... 
  5. When you're done at the компьютер, join us at the tables! Ураааа! Hooray! With a partner (or tutor, or me!), read the dialogue (obverse of the listening exercise), then follow the directions (make it на ты, informal). Вы is formal, and many of the connected forms end in -те. Здравствуйте! (that's formal)... Здравствуй! (informal!). Write out the new dialogue with all the necessary changes below the old one for your Portfolio.
  6. If you haven't already, SIGN UP for your oral performance on Thursday (tomorrow!). No class tomorrow, instead you should finish your portfolio and perform orally
From Olga Vasik... Всё просто! It's all alright!
