This book represents a qualitative step forward in the pedagogical process of teaching and learning a foreign language. The Russian language is full of pitfalls for English speakers. Marina Rojavin and Allan Reid's new study flags more than 500 of the most likely errors and shows how to avoid them. It provides English-speaking learners of Russian with a reference guide to those words which can easily cause difficulties and confusion and alerts students of Russian to potential mistakes that may be unintelligible or even embarrassing in Russian. This groundbreaking book is unique since it provides essential information in a completely new way, i.e. from the point of vocabulary semantics. Choice of vocabulary is a perennial stumbling block for the inexperienced language learner, a problem often overlooked in the classroom. The focus of the book is on problem words that are difficult to render both in Russian and in English and it highlights what one needs to know for everyday communication.
