Most modern approaches to teaching foreign languages stress the need for cultural awareness to be an integral part of language study.

Unfortunately, available teaching materials tend to focus exclusively on the culture of the language being learned, and neglect the learners’ native culture.
Courses teaching English may contain information about a range of cultures, but these are likely to be the cultures of English-speaking countries such as the United Kingdom, the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
This information is certainly important, and students show great interest in it. However, true cultural awareness involves seeing one’s own society and culture in relation to others, rather than simply learning about other cultures.

In addition, if Russian students are to exchange cultural information with friends and acquaintances around the world, they need to be able to explain their own culture in English, the international language. To do this, they need to practise discussing – in English – such topics as Russian traditions, history, politics and so on. Russian teachers and students of English therefore have a need for reliable course materials which deal with cultural, historical, geographical and other aspects of life in our country. Let me tell you all about Russia is designed to meet this need. Based on Russian learners’ native culture, it is the first social and cultural guide to Russia for learners of English.

The book meets all the requirements of state educational standards and foreign language courses in schools. It is designed for students of 12 years old and above, and contains 17 units covering a wide range of topics. Every unit includes material at different levels of difficulty, so that it can be used with students at a range of different stages. The level of each item is indicated in the contents as follows: late beginner; elementary; pre-intermediate; intermediate Its methodical system of original, meaningful tasks helps to develop students’ listening, reading and speaking skills. The book is accompanied by a set of four audio cassettes, containing recordings of the texts, all read by authentic native speakers. The book incorporates a crosscurricular approach, so students can draw on their knowledge of geography, biology, history, literature and other subjects. The book was piloted for a full year in schools in Moscow and St Petersburg, and received the unqualified approval of all teachers who used it.
