Foreign Service Institute Russian  - Image The Active Introduction is one of the modules in an array of materials used in Russian training at the Foreign Service Institute. It is essentially a catalog of sentences which can be combined (with alteration as necessary) to form different communication sequences in dialog form relating to typical daily activities (comings and goings, appointments, meetings, errands etc.). The book is used in conjunction with a table-top city model on which activities are demonstrated and imitated. Students learn to speak Russian through engaging in a running dialog with a teacher as a communication sequence is unfolded.

At first the teacher controls the sequence; later, as his mastery develops, the student assumes more control. The central goal in developing the material was to make possible the formation of natural sequences, free from the constraints imposed by accommodation to a predetermined schedule of grammar points and a list of words to be covered. The words and grammar features occurring in the sentences, therefore, derive from the choice of what is to be communicated rather than an inventory of pre-selected items to be covered. In any given sentence, some of the grammatical patterns partially exemplified in it are expanded--others are considered for the moment as isolated items to be learned in that context only.

(In view of its purpose and design, the book does not lend itself to use for self-study by beginners.)
