While teaching and learning online, we will all miss those precious three-minute chats in the hallway after a class about your Russian friends, the puzzles of Russian language use and public behavior, your brilliant progress in the course, and the teacher's unfortunate failings.
To compensate and console us all for that loss, we instituted Button-Hole Meetings on Zoom. Feel free to arrange one any time. In fact, your syllabus will remind you to have one if you've gone lax on that front. You must have a question or two, yes?
