Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
This course is for absolute beginners who want to experience a sample class for the Russian language to decide whether it is a good fit for them.  The course is not for intermediate, fluent, native speakers, or anyone with experience and exposure to Russian.  

Students will improve their understanding of the Russian language and culture through this 30-minute introductory class.  They will familiarize themselves with the alphabet, sounds, and learn at least one common phrase.  Each student will have an opportunity to work on their individual pronunciation with the teacher. 
I spent four years learning Russian while studying at the University of Arizona.  I was able to learn from a lot of amazing professors, not only the Russian language, but also culture, history, geography, folklore, and diplomacy.  I participated in language exchange during this time with several Russians where we would read books, stories, and practice our language skills several times per week.  I'm excited to get to share this incredible language with you!
No homework for this course.
A one-page handout will be provided by the teacher.  No other supplies are required.  
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The assessment for this class is based on participation.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
