Learning Objectives

The course offers linguistic and grammatical reflections on Russian verbs (level A2). This module will concentrate on the classification of productive and non-productive verbs and relative conjugations; the study of affixes and the changes these produce in verbs in relation to aspect. Particular attention will focus on verbs of motion, both with and without a prefix.

Program

The grammatical categories of the Russian verb

Productive, non-productive and classless verbs

·  Action in progress

·  Realisation that the action has been concluded

·  Repetition of the action

  • Potential realisation of an action

·  Negation expressing an action failing to produce a result

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Applied knowledge and comprehension skills: students will learn to conjugate some regular and irregular verbs, including verbs of motion together with certain prefixes (but excluding participles and gerunds), and to choose the most suitable form of aspect for certain communicative objectives.

Autonomy of judgement: they will be able to recognise the most frequent uses of imperfective and perfective forms of verbs and use them where appropriate.

Communicative skills: students will be able to speak Russian at A2 level.

Learning skills: Students will acquire the tools and notions relating to Russian verbs for the study of Russian at A2 level.

The metalinguistic exam (“monographic course”) is a written test to be completed in 45 minutes. It consists of 30 multiple choice  questions in Italian, principally to assess both acquired knowledge and applied comprehension skills. The use of dictionaries is not permitted during this test. Criteria for the assessment of the test are:

- pertinence and correctness of answers in relation to contents of programme

- ability to apply knowledge to specific cases

- ability to reflect critically on concepts and processes

- knowledge of the metalanguage

Any mark for the “monographic” course below 18/30 is not a pass.
