We select the materials for each group of our Russian school according to the communicative tasks facing it. One basic manual and fragments from others in which separate subjects are better reflected is usually used. The main manuals and textbooks are by the Russian authors as in Russia traditions of foreigners training is the oldest, and the technique, in our opinion, is fulfilled better.

Pupils aren't obliged to get textbooks for training in Russian as foreign, however on demand we are ready to help in purchase of the main textbooks. After all they are suitable and for further independent study of Russian language. The alternative option – to use the electronic versions of books or training materials offered by the teacher directly during the courses.
