This worksheet is based on a media publication, which offers a fascinating insight into the secretive world of one of the biggest American family business empires. It is appropriate for class work as well home reading and is aimed at confident speakers of B2/C1 looking to expand their vocabulary further with a specific focus on business and finance vocabulary. The text is thought provoking and can be a jumping point for discussing such topics as family relationships, generation gap, work ethic, business development and strategy. Instead of providing translation for potentially unknown words, we included synonyms. This along with the context should be enough to guess the word’s meaning.

Business Russian. Comprehension "Dirty money in the UK"

This is a worksheet I developed for my business Russian students aimed at B2/C1 level. The file contains an interview with a book author. The task is to substitute English words with Russian equivalents. The vocabulary is business and finance focused. Students will also benefit from finding a number of synonymous constructions for the phrases to be translated into English. If used for self-study, the worksheet will require work with a dictionary or a teacher’s guidance. While using it for my own lessons, I encouraged students to think of the answers to the questions posed by the journalist in the text before proceeding to reading the author’s answers. This prompted a lively discussion in the group and a bit of a break from a rather intense grammar and vocab exercise.
