Learning outcomes

The course focuses on two aspects of the Russian language: its morphology and syntax, and its linguistic variations. During the course, a sample of Russian texts characterised by a variety of linguistic registers will be read, analysed and translated. Several translation techniques and strategies will also be explained and implemented. At the end of course, students will be able to: 1) demonstrate to have the Russian language skills that correspond to the C2 level of the CEFR; 2) apply the acquired knowledge in an in-depth analysis of complex texts characterised by different registers, preferring the ones that belong to the business and socio-political sphere (LM38), and to the literary or linguistic-didactic sphere (LM37); 3) develop their own personal and coherent opinion on the linguistic issues studied in the course.
