Lynn Visson "Where Russians Go Wrong in Spoken English"

small_q
Wonderful avva recommended a good book about troubles Russians have with English language. It's not about grammar or pronunciation, but about differences in cultural background and mentality, lack of knowledge about American lifestyle and unspoken traditions.

It seems a little bit outdated, but still will be a big help for someone wishing to understand English beyond word-for-word translation.

love and fate, and a touch of stupidity
Thank you, I really enjoyed the book. True, it seemed a little outdated - I'm pretty sure that people do not do so much of word-for-word translation anymore...
I loved the chapter about gestures! A lot of information from there was new to me))
