This course takes place during timeslot 1 and 2 (so taking 3 hours a day).

Parallel to this course, Larissa Anissimova (winner of the Leiden University’s Teaching Award 2007) will give a Master class Active Russian (also during timeslot 1 and 2). This course is designed for advanced students who wish to further develop their active language proficiency and will be tailored to the individual expectations of the students.

In the afternoon, Lena Lubotsky, a native speaker who is an experienced professional in the field of language instruction at institutions of higher education, will teach (in Russian) a masterclass on Russian literature, focusing on the traces of Stalin terror in Russian prose (timeslot 3) and poetry (timeslot 4).

Parallel to the latter session (in time slot 3), Otto Boele and Ellen Rutte will teach (in English) a course on contemporary Russian poetry. In both courses, students will be expected to play an active part in class discussions. For students who are more interested in linguistics, Tijmen Pronk will offer an introduction to Slovene during time slot 4.
