Prerequisites: To have overcome the previous course of Russian language 2. The student will have to demonstrate full mastery of the second-year Russian language program.
Target skills and knowledge: The student will complete and deepen the study of the basic morphosyntactic structures of the Russian language. The student will extend the ability to understand written texts also through the examination of texts related to contemporaneity.
Examination methods: The language exam evaluates language skills (written / oral comprehension and written / oral expression) and verifies the achievement of level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
The exam consists of a written test and an oral test. The written test is preparatory to the oral one and includes a lexico-grammatical test, a textual synthesis and the translation of a passage from Italian into Russian.
The oral exam includes conversation and reading, translation and lexical and grammatical commentary of texts prepared independently by the student for a total of 50 pages. The conversation test is preparatory to the final oral exam with the professor in charge of the course.
Assessment criteria: Evaluation in thirtieths.
In the written tests we will evaluate the orthographic and grammatical correctness and the expressive property.
In the oral examination the student will have to demonstrate to be able to entertain a conversation on the topics studied during the course and to express correctly and with a good pronunciation and to translate the independently prepared texts.

The written examination must be passed in all its parts in a single appeal. The written examination is considered passed if each of its parts is evaluated with a result equal to or greater than 18/30. The written examination is considered not passed if one or more parts are evaluated with a grade lower than 18/30. In this case written examination must be re-done in all its parts in subsequent appeal or session.
Course unit contents: Deepening of some elements of morphology and syntax.
In addition to the theoretical language lessons, the course includes:
- the autonomous reading of 50 pages in Russian (1 page = 2000 characters, spaces included), which will be chosen among the readings proposed by the professor;
- textual synthesis exercises (CEL dr. Borozdina);
- conversation exercises (CEL dr. Borozdina);
- translation exercises from Italian into Russian (CEL dr. Kandybina).
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The course is articulated as follows:
Theoretical lectures (42 hours). The following morphosyntax topics will be addressed: negative and indefinite pronouns; subordinate Reason, Time, Final clauses; the use of the perfective and imperfective aspects; impersonal clauses; the indirect speech.
Linguistic training (CEL dr. Borozdina): conversation and text synthesis.
Linguistic training (CEL dr. Kandybina): translation exercises from Italian into Russian of various types of text on themes of socio-cultural, tourism, political and economic.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Notes from the lessons.
