Without a moment's hesitation,t
one of the Russians spoke up:
"It's 21.3, Professor James," het
said.I
Despite all of this, however, it
was startling to me to realiZe how X
completely, even with an aston-
ishing amount of statistical infor-
mation, these students missed an
understanding of what the sys-
tems were all about and how they1
actually functioned. I had the1
same feeling sitting in the Ameri-
can literature class and reflecting
upon how completely one-sided
was their view of American life,r
but I will have more to say aboutt
that in the final article of this
series.c
Asks Re-readingr
An incident which occurred
during one of my meetings with
an English language class at Mos-
cow University also may serve to1
demonstrate something of theC
foreign language competency ofE
Soviet students. A small group oft
students was having a little diffi-t
culty with the pronunciation of
certain English phrases and It
stopped to read a passage for
them. After I had gone throughE
the lesson for the first time, one
of the girls said to me:
"Sir, you read that a little more
slowly than you should. Would
you mind reading it just a little
faster?"
The question concerning how
well prepared the Soviet student
is upon entering college is a diffi-
cult one to answer. Our experi-
ence naturally was limited and
unquestionably we met mostly the
superior students at the universi-
ties and institutes we visited. t

these limitations, however, itE
seems clear that the average So-r

is better prepared, at least in cer-I
