Russian for Trade Negotiations with the USSR.
Elliott, James S.
The primary goal of this text is to present the vocabulary and phraseology used in Soviet-American trade and to provide the student with oral facility in business Russian. In order to bring together the vocabulary of the diverse fields which play a role in such trade, the student is presented with sufficient background information in Russian to enable her/him to simulate the role of one of the primary actors in a business deal. The texts have been translated from English. The goal of the course is to train the student to follow bilingual negotiations with complete understanding while retaining the use of a competent translator, and to be able to communicate effectively about one's product in an informal setting. The text and exercises consist of questions to be answered in Russian and sentences to be translated into Russian. Word lists follow each of the texts. Instructions for using the text and constructing the course are included. (Author/JK)
