This foundation course in Russian is designed for students with no previous knowledge of the language. The tried-and-tested materials include lively dialogues introducing vocabulary and grammar in context, as well as structured exercises to develop the student's language skills. A wide variety of materials is used to improve all four core skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing, with particular emphasis on active language skills. Students will progress from beginner to upper intermediate level within a year. The accompanying web pages at www languages.routledge.com, offer additional course material including interactive exercises, guidance for tutors, and useful links to Russian-language sites. Cassettes are available to accompany the course, featuring recordings of the dialogues used in the text, as well as comprehension and role-playing exercises.
