This paper is an attempt to do a comparative study which is focusing on different methods of teaching Chinese as a second foreign language to Russian and other foreign students at Tyumen State University. It is of great significance to overcome the language barrier while learning Chinese and enhance the Chinese teaching standard. Thus, the authors propose various teaching methods, contributing not only to teaching Chinese to Russian students and other foreign students, but also to sinologists for further study.
In their comparative analysis the authors discuss linguistic features of the Chinese language and its dissimilarity with the Russian language; moreover, this article lists 4 major obstacles for the Russian students at the first stage of their studies, as well as the strategy to overcome them.
