The learning approach is competency-based or topic-oriented to provide survival competencies. Three sections review phonetics, topics for main discussion, and practical grammar exercises. Phonetics includes pronunciation as well as Cyrillic orthography. Topics offered for discussion include greetings, in the food, family, classroom, shopping, directions, transportation, housing, at work, communication, health, social situations, and community services. Each topic is structured and includes introduction of new language and grammar patterns, practice activities, bilingual vocabulary lists, and grammar notes. Practical grammar concentrates on pronouns, numerals, nouns, verbs, and adjectives. A vocabulary and listing of functional Russian phrases is given, and a reference section lists texts for continued study.
