The article distinguishes the notions of “communication” and “obshchenije” as relevant for determining the aim of Russian language teaching and learning. Reasoned choice in favour of “obshchenije” allowed to formulate the aim of teaching that reflects author’s holistic outlook on teaching-learning process. This outlook is based on phenomenological theory of personality and determines the choice of educational learning models, including methods, forms and tools to achieve the goal. Strong and sustained motivation is what cements all the components. The article outlines the features of motivational textbook that forms intention to study language and aimed at a continuous stimulation of obshchenije.
