Russian for Native speakers

Lebedev, Valentina Silver_nugget
Russian for Native speakers

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

The class was, because of its vague title, with people of very mixed levels. Lebedev's nice but will nail you if you miss any of her copious homework. Maybe that's a good thing because unless you're reading at near-English speed and writing in cursive you can't miss an assignment without falling hopelessly behind. Lectures are a must-- this lady gets more done in 75 minutes than some professors do in a month of classes. Fulfills foreign language requirement so a good bargain if you only need to brush up on the reading and writing. Good luck!

Workload:

Homework assignments (usually a packet of worksheets and some reading) after EVERY class-- doable if you come in reading and writing russian, hard if not. Also, quasi-mandatory corrections of all assignments. 2-3 essays. quizzes very often (averaging 1 a week), and a final.
