III. Read the Russian article and a sample of rendering it in English русские пришли и говорят Как наши соотечественники привыкают к традициям, культуре, языку стран, гражданами которых стали?

Елена Новоселова

"Российская газета" - Федеральный выпуск 5393 (17) от 28 января 2011 г.

20 лет как бывшие советские республики разошлись по отдельным квартирам. Пришла пора взглянуть на проблемы наших соотечественников, оставшихся за рубежом, и с такой позиции: как русскоязычные принимают новые условия жизни, как адаптируются к традициям и культуре, знают ли государственные языки стран, гражданами которых стали?

Ответить на эти вопросы нам помогают лауреаты разных лет Пушкинского конкурса учителей русского языка, организованного "Российской газетой". Дискуссию вела Ядвига Юферова.
