A thorough overview of Slavonic morphology (noun declension, adjectives, pronouns, verb conjugation), as well as an introduction to Slavonic syntax will be offered throughout 10 course days including 6 hours of daily training for a total of 60 classroom hours. The daily lessons will combine theoretical with practical elements in the classes. Lectures on the history of the Slavic Bible will be offered in some of the afternoons.
