should i take these courses?
i am about to be a college freshmen and i am planning to take 7 courses this fall semester. I went online to my community college’s website and i saw the program requirements and course descriptions in my major which is administrative assistant under office technology.
I saw the requirements for an associate’s degree and the classes it recommends i take are business english, intro to microcomputers,intermediate computer keyboarding,and a ge course from social and behavioral sciences and i chose intro to sociology, and also an elective which i chose bookkeeping. In addition to these courses i have to take the courses that i scored in my placement assesment test which are arithmetic fundamentals (math that prepares you for college level math but doesn’t count for college credit, i have to take three course before i get to college level) also i have to take freshmen composition. do you think this sounds right or is too much?
Seven courses in one semester is a lot. If you don’t have a job or any kind of social life, you may be able to pull it off. But I think you should try to ease into college courses, take 4 (or 5 at the most) your first semester just to get used to it.
Take your fundamentals now (anything that you’ll need as a prerequisite for later). I think your first semester should be the arithmetic, sociology, microcomputers, & composition.
STUDYING RUSSIAN IN RUSSIA?
hi im 19 from london,uk, i really want to go to russia preferably moscow/saint petersburg and study the standard russian language at a university or language school,i have no previous experience with russian, although i do know the russian alphabet well. So it would be a big help if you could recommend what uni, what time of the year, how long to go for, accommodation, return flights, and basic overall cost etc etc.thanks
I want to do same thing but in Canada…
I think summer would be cheaper then winter (I took english classes in Moscow and can say that in summer people dont like study, that is why prices were droped)
but ticket for flying cheaper in spring, and the first months of year
So, the best way for you is -
1) to find friend there (interpals.net can help you)
2) to rent an apartment,
3) to buy issuance (medical),- ?????????? – www.ingos.ru- would be better
4) ask friend to find a good teacher for you or you can look for they on teachers sites, because to study in special russian school for foreign – will be very expensive. They think that people from abroad have so much money.
on your side I would live in different cities – some months in Kazan, some in Spb, some in Moscow, maybe Rostov – na – Donu
P.S : Sorry for my poor English, and if you need stuff for learning Russian i can send
