Education is the fortieth (assuming read left to right) skill of the Russian language tree. It teaches a little bit about the Russian school system while also teaching various teaching and learning vocabulary. There is also a couple of imperatives learned in Lesson 9. It has nine lessons.

Culture NotesEdit

Russian schools are remarkably similar to American schools, but there are a few differences.

ClassesEdit

Classes tend to be either forty-five minutes (класс) or ninety-five minutes (пара) (two forty-five minute periods with a five minute break, hence "pair")

GradesEdit

Russian's grades are often on the 5-point scale, with 1 being the worst and 5 the best:

  • 1 is so utterly bad that it almost never happens (eдиница)
  • 2 is неудовлетворительно or a "fail" (двойка)
  • 3 is удовлетворительно or a "pass" (тройка)
  • 4 is хорошо or a "good" mark (четвёрка)
  • 5 is отлично or "excellent" (пятёрка)

Russian UniversityEdit

There is a hierarchy to a Russian university which shares some similarities with the American system.

университет (university) has several факультеты or отделения (faculties) which then have various кафедры (branches). Some universities will also have an институт (institute) as well.
