Learning outcomes:
The course _Russian for Beginners 1_ is aimed at learners who have no previous knowledge of the language. The modules _Russian for Beginners 1_ and _Russian for Beginners 2_ are based on one another. In the course of the two modules, participants will first reach proficiency level A1 and then advance to level A2 of the European Framework of Reference for Languages.
The goal of the course is to provide students with basic knowledge of the Russian language, which will enable them to communicate in general and professional situations, both orally and in writing. To do so, all four skills (speaking, listening comprehension, reading and writing) will be trained equally. We will focus on oral communication in order to develop communicative competence in work-related situations, especially through role playing and the use of dialogues. Important grammatical structures will be taught in order to support and supplement the content of the course.
During the course, intercultural aspects will also be addressed so that students develop an awareness of cultural specificities and are able to act and communicate appropriately and competently in the respective situations.
