This article is devoted to the selection of lexical material for classes on Russian as a foreign language in the Korean audience and for future nationally-oriented textbooks in terms of content component, primarily cultural linguistic value. Based on the methodological principle of the interconnection between language and culture and the criteria for comparative linguistic and regional studies, we propose to supplement the basic vocabulary from the Lexical minimums in Russian as a foreign language with communicatively significant units, taking into account the national and cultural specifics of Korean students. The article highlights several important aspects of the life of Korean society, knowledge of which will support a better intercultural communication, as well as the most relevant non-equivalent lexical units of the Korean language, taking into account their potential for the development of Korean students’ speech. The article will be useful for teachers of Russian as a foreign language who work with Korean students and do not speak Korean.

Keywords: Russian as a foreign language, comparative cultural and linguistic studies, cultural studies, lexical minimum, nationally oriented education, non-equivalent vocabulary, Korean students
