This extensive language program offers medium-to-high-intensity learning to motivated language students. It's an excellent course in Russian for students who already have some basic knowledge of the language, but it may be used by ambitious students without any previous Russian. Four cassettes-65-to-78 minutes each-simulate social and business situations a typical visitor to Russia is likely to encounter. The handsomely illustrated textbook offers both language help and fascinating, up-to-date information about Russian culture and customs. A workbook offers practice in written exercises. Written transcripts of tapes appear in the Answer Booklet, and a Learner's Handbook offers a general orientation to Russian grammar.
