EAC offering Russian this fall

By Mylee Mayberry

Thatcher, AZ—EAC's Communicative Arts Division is pleased to once again offer Beginning Conversational Russian (RUS011, section #1994) and Elementary Russian (RUS101, section #0614).

Tatyana Knowlton, native Ukrainian and Russian speaker and graduate of Kiev University, will teach the classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning August 17, 2015. RUS011, a two-credit class, will be held from 6-7:50 p.m., and RUS101, a four-credit class, will be held from 6-8:15 p.m. in the AP Building, room 275.

The topics range from weather, clothes, sports, health, directions, geography of Russia, and more. Knowlton says, “There can’t be a good education without knowledge of foreign languages. It’s the way for different countries to know and understand each other better.”

Knowlton was born, raised, and educated in Ukraine. She has been teaching for over forty years and has received Excellent Teacher and Honored Teacher of Ukraine and an advanced degree in Methodology. She says, “I enjoy singing Russian and Ukrainian songs and my students enjoy singing them too. Learning languages can be fun!”

To register for this class, call EAC’s Records and Registration Office at (928) 428-8270, or visit Gila Hank Online at EAC. Students age 55 and over qualify for EAC’s Senior Citizen Tuition Scholarship which covers the full cost of in-state tuition.
