Description: A relatively rare textbook, published a mere 4 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, designed to teach secondary school children Russian through the use of dialogue – e.g. an exchange between 2 or more characters is printed and the words are explained on the facing page. Contains sections on grammar, Cyrillic handwriting, plus many exercises (none of which have been attempted).
Illustrated throughout with b&w photographs and line drawings (the majority of which are full-page).
The book would be in pristine condition were it not for two defects: 1) The previous owner's pronunciation notes on one page. 2) A large crease on the last page.
Measures 25 cm × 17.5 cm (10" × 7"). 4to. 139 pp.
