Most students who study Russian at Cornell College start from scratch with RUS 101, which is generally offered in February each year. By the end of the first week of the block students know the alphabet and are able to make simple statements and conduct very basic conversations. The focus in the first several courses is on practical vocabulary so that students can handle everyday situations, such as talking about self, family, interests, and daily activities.
