This article examines the training of foreign students in Russian through the prism of cross-culturalcommunication. Furthermore, the article explores problems connected with cross-cultural communication connected, in particular, with the dynamics of the Flagship program being conducted at Al-FarabiKazakh National University.

Biographical particulars are given as experimental base. The results of such biographical particulars help to reveal the most frequent problems connected with cross-cultural barriers to the assimilation of a foreign language, among which there are phonetic problems, lack of knowledge of semanticproperties, and stylistic problems.
