The course on advanced Russian grammar and reading is meant for students who have completed the lower-division Russian sequence (Russian 1-4). Can be taken by heritage speakers with an adequate language background (a preliminary placement test / interview required). The course will cover less familiar and more challenging areas of Russian grammar and syntax; develop reading fluency and sophisticated vocabulary.

There will be written home assignments, grammar and vocabulary quizzes, and several tests.
