Laying a Foundation for Russian for Business and Economics.
Teachers of courses on Russian for business and economics face the difficult task of bridging the objective and subjective needs of students. The need to have large and varied amounts of representative material to introduce unfamiliar concepts and new terminology is a challenge for course designers. Courses should expose students to three categories or levels of information: (1) background information on Russia and its people; (2) directly reported facts, generally consisting of brief statements or announcements; and (3) casual statements, indirectly related topics, or facts with unstated implications requiring the use of inductive reasoning to grasp their relevance. Ways are discussed for covering each of those categories in a topic or unit. (LB)
