    Hello. Russian lang. has more free structure than English. But "subject+verb" is often preffered. Intonation is important. F.e. Q:Вы читали эту книгу?You can answer: да(yes) нет (no) читал(а) её (I have read (it)) да, она интересная (yes,it is/has been/was interesting) etc. And you can repeat this sentense with affirmative intonation.
    Russian is difficult, I ve tried give you some short info.

    Firstly, try using CGP's AS History books for study - I found them really useful when I was doing this course last year There's two for Russian History, one on the reign of the Tsars from I think 1881 - 1924, and one on Stalin's Russia from 1924 - 1954.

    For an essay structure, follow this system...

    - Introduction -
    Give some context about the topic. Should be a couple of sentences long. Declare a bias - i.e. if you think that collectivisation was generally a bad idea, say so here.

    - Positive/Agree Points -
    Write three paragraphs for positive/agree points. These should follow a PEEL structure...

    POINT
    EVIDENCE
    EXPLANATION
    LINK

    So present a point, i.e. "collectivisation led to a worse economy", present evidence, i.e. "agricultural production was 46% lower in such-and-such year", then explain, i.e. "this led to such-and-such happening". After these, link it back to the question, i.e. "this suggests that collectivisation was not a good policy".

    - Negative/Disagree Points -
    Now do exactly the same thing as you did with the Positive Points, but presenting the negative or disagree arguments.

    - Conclusion -
    Summarise your arguments and wrap it all up with a final link-to-question, i.e. "it is therefore fair to conclude that collectivisation was not a good policy". Do not add any new information here in your conclusion.

    When it's all done, your essay should be roughly 2-4 A4 pages long (when using a Word font size of 12) and should have eight paragraphs...

    - 1x Intro
    - 3x Positive/Agree
    - 3x Negative/Disagree
    - 1x Conclusion

    I hope this all helped! Please be sure to ask me if you have any other questions
