Day two, Week three, Unit 2. Listening and Этот vs. Это
Добрый день! Рад вас видеть! Good day! Nice to see you.
It's a busy week. Your portfolios are due on Thursday... Here's the assignment. MAKE SURE that you've included EVERY item... Grammar explanations, translations, etc. There is a LOT of homework, all of which needs to be COMPLETE, CHECKED, and CORRECTED by the time you turn in your portfolio. And don't forget the ORAL PRESENTATION. You've signed up, right?
In Dr. Denner's class, we got distracted and started to talk Russian music... What's a balalaika? Lauren just happened to have one with her... The song is called Коробейники (lit. Peddlers)... Как красиво!
And then we talked about what makes Russian music... Russian. It's the chords! And progressions... Listen to Vysotsky's song!
Don't forget Georgian Cooking Club! Most Thursdays in Allen Hall. You should visit!
1) OK, к делу! To the business at hand... First, take the quiz!
2) Now, sign up for your Устное выступление your ORAL PERFORMANCE here.3) On your handout, you will find two listening exercises, Давайте послушаем! Let's Listen! The first, 2-38 магазин-салон, just listen to find out the PRICES of each item, which you can scratch below the picture. The second, 2-39 Магазин <<Мода>> , just answer briefly the 3 questions. Listen carefully for the words you understand and make your judgments accordingly.
4) Finally, наконец, check out this great Prezi I made on the differences between two similar words, Это ("This is, that is, these are", the all-purpose introduction) and этот (the demonstrative "this" or "that" as in "this car and that cat"). At the tables, we'll work through a brief exercise that will help you to understand proper use and formation...
Finally, finally, наконец-то... go "LIKE" (поставить ЛАЙК!) the SPREES Facebook page!
