Perevod v uslovijach kratkosročnogo obučenija
This article is dedicated to the translation course at the RLTC (Russian Language Teaching Center), St-Petersburg University, Russia. This course has been running for two years and experience shows that it has been a very useful method for acquiring greater knowledge of the Russian language. Lessons are held once a week per semester (four months) or one year (8 months). Students come from the USA, Great Britain and other Western European countries. All texts for translation are based on practical course themes and are related to modern life in Russia. At the end of the course students take an examination based on two texts (one known and one unknown).
