contemporary, Russia, foreign language, classroom


Volume 57 of Russian Language Journal presents a distinguished set of U.S. and international research studies and reports reflecting the three major directions of RLJ: two significant contributions in the area of the description of contemporary standard Russian; two new works in the area of Russian language policy (one a corpus study, the other a status report); four new empirical studies on the acquisition of Russian as a foreign language by adult English-speaking learners; and two valuable studies ― one American, one Russian ― on recent changes affecting Russian in the foreign language classroom environment.
