The author focuses on the language of business as used by the people in the Commonwealth of Independent States through a system of ten lessons. The book provides examples of formal Russian business and dialogues to provide an understanding of informal communication. This combination of language and business develops a broad understanding of the present status of the Russian business world, while enabling the reader to interact with that world.
