Abstract:In our contemporary society the desire of foreign pupils and students to learn the Russian language and to study in Russia is increasing, which demands searching for the new ways of their cultural and linguistic adaptation. Exercising with authentic texts is a most useful method in teaching Russian as a foreign language, as it makes possible to overcome the cross-cultural and language barriers and develop communicative competence. As a result, foreigners adapt more comfortably in another cultural situation, and their communication with native speakers of Russian becomes more effective. The article deals with the problem of applying authentic texts of children’s literature in teaching foreigners, who learn Russian at A2 level. The authors of the article highlight the defining role of these texts in the development of linguistic consciousness. The tutorial project, which is represented in the article, is both a training material and a way to improve teaching techniques in Russian.
