It is highly recommended that students taking the basic first- and second-year Russian courses (RUSS 101, 102, 201, 202) also take the corresponding one-credit conversation courses (RUSS 111, 112, 211, 212) which are coordinated with them, and which provide practice and reinforcement of the material in the base course. Students who take both together usually are more successful at learning Russian.
