The course book is compiled for the economics students who have basic skills of using English as an additional language of instruction and who have acquired basic economic vocabulary. The aim of the course book is twofold: to study an introductory course in International Economic Relations and the further development of academic professionally oriented bilingualism. These are secured by the exposure to the reading texts, mainly authentic, on specific topics of the course, supported by lectures in English and by mini research assignments designed for small teams followed by oral reports on the results of research.

Учебное пособие предназначено для студентов экономических специальностей, имеющих базовые навыки использования английского языка как дополнительного языка обучения и владеющих базовой экономической терминологией. Цель пособия двойная: это изучение вводной дисциплины «Международные экономические отношения» и дальнейшее развитие академического профессионально ориентированного двуязычия. Этому способствует чтение и обсуждение текстов, главным образом, из аутентичных англоязычных источников, слушание лекций на английском языке, выполнение небольших мини групповых исследований на темы курса в виде кейсов и устные выступления с результатами исследований.
