Continuing With Russian
Continuing with Russian is an intermediate-advanced textbook for students who have been through a full-sized elementary text and have been exposed to the more basic morphological patterns and a first-year vocabulary. In addition, the quantity and range of grammatical information contained in its twenty-five lessons, the comprehensive Russian and English word references in the General Vocabulary, and the Index should make it an excellent reference book during and long after any Russian course in which it is used. The book is basically designed for college courses and probably would not be appropriate for most high school courses below the third-year level. Because of the thorough and often quite detailed treatment of difficult and complex grammatical points, ranging from what amount to rather comprehensive essays on modal expressions (Lesson IX) and CH verbs (Lesson X) to a host of smaller grammatical and lexical questions through both the Review and regular Lessons, Continuing with Russian should be very useful also for graduate students in Slavic languages and literatures.
