    Dear Laura:
    We collapse 3rd and 4th year into one group and offer four
    non-sequential classes which the students are free to take in any
    order. Often these courses stresses a particular skill set or build
    particular vocabulary, to focus away from the presumed differences in
    student preparation.

    We use _V puti_ as background grammar text in most of them, with
    supplementary materials drawn from other texts focused fundamentally
    on grammar.

    Below are the texts we have used (or in one case are considering
    using) -- some must be supplemented with grammar, others incorporate

    _Cinema for Russian Conversation (Kashper, Kagan, Morozova)_.
    _A Guide to Essay Writing in Russian_ (Svetlana and Stephen
    _Let's Talk About Life!_ (Emily Tall & Valentina Vlasikova).
    -Russkie kul'turnye idiomy. ("Inside the Russian Soul: A Historical
    Survey of Russian Cultural Patterns") - Yulia Nemirovskaia
    _Advanced Russian Through History_ Rifkin, Kagan, Yatsenko
    _Russian in Use. An Interactive Approach to Advanced Communicative
    Competence_. Sandra Freels Rosengrant

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks, that's interesting, considering I have thoroughly gone through Golosa I and II and was curious as to what the next step would be as it seemed as though there were no further editions of the book.
