Reading and watching in Russian together from Skype-Language

Reading and watching in Russian together from Skype-Language

Is there a Russian book you are longing to read? Or a Russian movie you have always wanted to watch without subtitles? Here is a course that will help you do just that.


The course ‘Reading and Watching Together’ is intended to provide you with the language skills to understand what you are reading or watching . In addition, you will gain understanding of the cultural elements and historical events that form the foundation of the text or film. If possible, we will use a book and its film adaptation simultaneously. Another option will be to analyze the screenplay of a film as we watch it.


If you like, we can also work on grammar and enriching your vocabulary . You will also have the opportunity to practice both conversation skills and written skills.


Examples of literature:

  • Достоевкий, Ф. Белые ночи \ White Nights (Fiction, short story).
