The texts serving as a basis for your learning present Russian as it is spoken today. They introduce you to everyday life, the literature, history and particular features of Russian character, often with a touch of humour. The 100 lessons teach what you need to know for everyday communication: corresponding and speaking on the telephone, expressing yourself, asking questions, explaining etc. You will thus be able to get by with ease in a wide variety of situations in Russian life.
