Videopodcast: Say it in Russian. How to tell stories in Russian (2008)
  • Svitlana Malykhina
This series is designed as a source for supplementary materials for Russian classes with instructions for effective integration into the curriculum. All episodes and learning materials are arranged according to the different levels of proficiency and performance in Russian. Next to the title you can find a label of the episode, for example (Novice Mid), or (Advanced Low). There are ten different levels of proficiency: "novice", "intermediate", "advanced", and "superior", of which the first three are subdivided into "low", "mid", and "high". Labeling is based on the levels of proficiency recognized by ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages), however note that ACTFL level and your college level Russian placement may not correlate reliably. To use the materials of this website effectively and efficiently, first learn where you stand in your language learning, then make sure you watch the episode designed for the level of your performance in Russian. Keep in mind, resources of this website are not designed for any type of assessment, but rather for development of three modes of communication: interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational.
