The dialogues are taken from ordinary situations of daily life-asking for directions,making telephone calls ,preparing for a job interview,opening bank accounts,and many more.
Everyday Dialogues is designed as a manual for improving the Russian speakers'communication skills in modern American English. All sentences are presented in English and in Russian.
In some cases, a vocabulary section accompanies the dialogues.This structural feature is necessitated by the fact that some specific topics require additional informational units.
Because of the idiomatic nature of many
American phrases and expressions,their
Russian equivalents are often freely translated.
The author"s intention has been to make the book a practical working manual.
It is hoped that Everyday Dialogues will serve all those Russian speakers who attend English language classes, as well as those students of English who prefer to improve their knowledge of spoken American English on their own.
All names and figures mentioned in Everyday Dialogues should be regarded only as examples.
The dialogues are followed by the appendix which contains some practical guidelines and suggestions for resumes
and business letters.
