Way back in February (Feb. 26), we received amazing news, once again, from the Russian Olympiad competition.
 
The OU Russian Program is proud to announce that eleven Russian students participated in the 2017 Undergraduate Competition (Olympiada) of Spoken Russian, which this year was hosted by Bowling Green State University. Tested on an oral interview, a poem recitation, and a presentation on a random topic, students competed within their respective levels in the all-day event dedicated to expanding and recognizing students’ achievements in Russian language. Our wonderful students delivered again!
 
Kristina Denbow (RUS 1120) took 2d place in the Level 1 category. Samantha Jones (RUS 1120) took 3d place in the Level 1 category.  Michael Abelev (RUS 4441) took 3d place in the Heritage Learner category, and Russel Gifford (RUS 3120) took 1st place in the Level 3 category.
 
This is a great success for our Russian Program and Mila and Vera are very proud
 
 
 
Our wonderful Russian students delivered again and again and again!
 
They got one 1st place, one second, and two 3d places! (1st, 3d, and 4th-year students.)

Junior Faculty Dr. Ashwini Ganeshan lead two graduate students, Carla Consolini (pictured here) and Hannah Morrison (currently in Spain), to the annual ACTFL conference in Boston. Dr. Ganeshan and Carla spoke at the annual DML Colloquium, organized by Dr. Molly Morrison, on March 30. They captured much of the information they learned at ACTFL that concerned new ways to test language in a more comprehensive and fruitful manner, and the latest suggestions on how to assess test results, classroom participation and much more. They gave stimulating presentations that generated a great Q&A session.
