What worked well in this class? What did not work?
Overall, it was a good class. We revised the grammar, especially the cases, and learned a lot of new vocabulary. What I like the most in this class is that the students do the majority of the work themselves, the LR just needs to be there to check if the things are correct. At the end, every students had cards written in Russian for occasions like graduation, someone’s birthday etc. Plus, I was able to show the students the cards I had from home and explain the culture of writing wishes.
