"Advanced Russian Through Media" is aimed at upper intermediate and advanced level students of Russian who would like to expand their existing vocabulary, gain better understanding of contemporary Russian language and improve their knowledge of grammar through Russian media. It is based on material from authentic Russian newspaper articles written by Russians for native Russian speakers, which exposes students to real, everyday language.
The textbook is split into 10 self-contained chapters covering topics such as politics, business, history, crime, sport, cinema, Russian language, space and fashion.
Each chapter starts with an article in Russian and is then followed by various grammar exercises to reinforce the vocabulary used in the article finishing with comprehension questions about the content of the article as well as additional questions on the topic. At the end of the textbook there are translations of the articles into English as well as answers to the grammar exercises.
This textbook is recommended for university and adult students studying Russian independently, one-to-one or in groups. It can be used as a supplementary resource by the language teachers at further education colleges, evening courses or undergraduate courses at universities or for private tuition.

About the Author

Julia is a native Russian speaker and a professional Russian language teacher with over 10 years teaching experience. She currently teaches at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London, UK. Her private students are based in the UK, Europe and China and she has coached them for their work for such companies as Tesla Motors, Sky News and Reuters, The Economist, Morgan Stanley, Commerzbank, Doctors Without Borders, VivaKi and others. Julia has taught many students of all levels face-to-face and online and prepared them for different types of exams in Russian. She has also created a successful online video course in “Russian for Beginners” with over a thousand existing students. She graduated from Queen Mary University of London with a BA in Russian and English Linguistics, specialising in Interpreting and Translation, Sociolinguistics, Psycholinguistics and Bilingualism. With her keen personal interest and passion for languages she is able to anticipate and understand potential difficulties that are often experienced by students during the learning process. This understanding, coupled with her vast experience of teaching Russian, has led her to create her first textbook. "Advanced Russian through Media" has been inspired by the experiences and feedback of Julia’s advanced students, who, at times, struggled to find appropriate contemporary study materials for their level, and have keenly welcomed this resource.
