For courses in First-year Russian Introductory Russian, Basic Russian, Basic Intensive Russian, and Intermediate Russian. Golosa is a two-volume, communicative approach to Russian that is designed to help students reach the ACTFL Intermediate range in speaking and Intermediate High in reading and listening. Each volume of Golosa includes a main textbook, a student workbook with laboratory drills and written exercises, and an audio program that runs approximately ten hours per volume and includes listening comprehension exercises, dialogs, conversations, and rapid-pace oral drills. Each unit in the program revolves around a topic (university, family, etc.), and follows the same basic format: introduction of basic vocabulary for the topic, listening to introductory conversations, short dialogs with activization exercises and role-play practice, practice in listening and reading with emphasis on strategies, grammar study and practice in both oral and written form, and written workbook exercises that go from mechanical to creative. NEW! Book I offers a CD-ROM with lexical and grammatical exercises for each unit!
