Lock-In at the Russian House

Last Friday, the Russian Club hosted its first ever biannual lock-in at the Russian House. Attendees conversed, ate pizza and played games after making a pact to only speak Russian for the night.  The event was a success! There were only a few instances when English was used and it was for clarification as the rules of a game were being explained. Students played Durak and a game called Who Am I? where each student was given a piece of paper with a Russian word on it and they had to ask questions to figure out their word.  After a positive response, the Russian Club hopes to host one of these lock-ins at least once a semester to encourage higher level Russian students to use their language in a more relaxed setting.
