Webinar by Richard Robin, Professor of Russian and International Affairs, Director of Russian Language program at The George Washington University
For first and second year students of Russian, interesting authentic video content — junky serials, news events, game shows, vblogs — are usually far beyond I+1, "just a bit beyond the comprehension comfort zone "; it's more like I+25!
But what's more interesting, an interview with some unknown, especially recorded for a Russian textbook, or the Season opener for Адаптация, the Russian spoof of The Americans, or an episode of Who Wants to Be a Millionnaire?

I'll show you how to do targeted subtitling.
Build a caption library!
