Summary: Golosa is part of a two-volume series communicative approach to Introductory Russian that is designed to help students reach the Intermediate range in speaking and listening plus reading and writing. Each volume of Golosa includes a main textbook, a student workbook with audio drills and written exercises, and an audio program that runs approximately ten hours per volume and includes listening comprehension exercises, dialogs, conversations, and rapid-pace oral drill ...show mores. In addition, a Companion Website offers additional lexical and grammatical exercises from each chapter plus links to authentic Russian websites, and the entire Golosa audio program is available online.

Each unit in the program revolves around a theme (university, family, etc.), and follows the same basic format: introduction of basic vocabulary for the chapter theme, listening to introductory conversations, short dialogs with activities and role-play practice, practice in listening and reading with emphasis on strategies, grammar study and practice in both oral and written form, and written workbook exercises that go from mechanical skill-building to creative skill-using.
