This course book aims to develop language skill and ability in accordance with the State Standard level II of testing Russian as a foreign language (TORFL).This first part of the course series contains 6 lessons and each lesson is linked directly to the work book and teachers guide.The material is organised on the basis of the 'situation-text' approach, whereby themes, situations, problems, grammar, vocabulary and text material are summarised on the first page of each lesson. A lingua-didactic content lesson is included at the back of the textbook. Each structured lesson teaches the development of Communicative Competency in listening, reading, speaking and writing. There are, however, some tasks which will focus on one aspect of language skills . such as a listening comprehension exercise using an authentic Russian text.The development of language competency is divided into two special areas, Grammar Focus and Vocabulary Focus which are closely linked to all units of the lessons. Each unit will only involve the grammar which is related to the texts of the chosen genres and the authors decided it was more beneficial to the student to cover grammar topics across various lessons rather than in just one unit. The vocabulary focus builds up the students specialist knowledge of words by teaching topical vocabulary linked to each unit and lesson. A reference guide to grammar is included at the back of the Student's Book.The accompanying workbook has been designed for the student's independent study and is linked to all topics, grammar and vocabulary covered in the textbook. The workbook contains various tests and exercises and comes with an audio CD.The teacher's guide gives clear instructions for all lessons in the book and comes with a DVD.
