For adult, self-teaching learners of Russian, this book is designed to take you to the equivalent of the British A-Level standard. Necessarily thorough, this book can serve both as a text as well as a reference. The basic grammar is covered in a manner useful to the travelers; lessons distinguish between concepts crucial to learn, and those that may be skipped if rushed for time. One or two exercises per lesson are provided, and revision exercises every five lessons. Key to the exercises is included, as well as a vocabulary, glossary, and grammatical table section. 514 pages, softcover.
