Abstract:

Written by a native speaker, Russian Basic-Intermediate is an illustrated
guide into the world of Russian language and culture. It is filled with
interesting Russian texts, clear grammatical explanations, numerous
exercises, humor and asides with information about Russian history,
culture, literature and art. This textbook consists of 18 lessons, each
starting with text and vocabulary lists, grammar sections with explanations
in English and various exercises combining both new and previously learned
vocabulary and grammar. Every four lessons are followed by a revision
section. Russian Basic-Intermediate's illustrated asides cover Russian
history from the period of Kievan Russia up to the end of the Soviet era.

The author, holding a Ph.D in Historical Linguistics, explains how the
Russian alphabet was created, where Russian names came from and tells about
derivation of some Russian words and expressions. This textbook also
introduces Russian art with numerous pictures of famous paintings
throughout the text and includes life stories of famous writers and
historical anecdotes.
