I used these with my ESL students and they found them
very interesting.

1. Oxford Guide to British and American Culture ISBN
2. The Oxford Picture Dictionary (either monolingual
or English- Russian) - pictures of all the American
realia, such as social security card, green card,
typical American food, organization of government, Am.
schools, job interviews in the US, malls, and many
more.  ISBN 0194700593
