agree  GaryG: Yes, Callaham's agrees with Lingvo here, but I like Olga's translation better and, as she says, context rules
11 mins
  -> Thank you, Gary. Interesting that Callaham gives "regional geography" - country studies is a much broader notion, isn't it?

agree  Jack Doughty
18 mins
  -> Thank you, Jack.

  -> Thank you everybody

agree  Сергей Лузан: Just share common opinion here.
5 hrs
  -> Thank you

agree  Tatiana Neroni: Country studies - явно шире, чем география.
9 hrs
  -> Да, более широкое понятие. Почему интересно и Лингво, и Callaham дают второй варинат? Наверное, в ИнЯзе не учились. Спасибо, Таня.

agree  xxxxeni: Actually, as I remember it, it was more history than geography. And it was very interesting, wasn't it, Olga?
10 hrs
  -> My most favourite subject by the way. Never skipped lessons (I mean on this one)! Thank you, Ksiusha.

agree  Charov: Обычно это country studies.
11 hrs
  -> Yep! Thank you

neutral  Sarah Allsopp: Is "country studies" an actual course you can study? I've heard of "regional studies", but not "country studies". Correct me if I'm wrong!
11 hrs
  -> I am correcting you as you asked - yes, it is an actual course that you can study. All colleagues above who have graduated from Linguistic Universities will attest that this does exist and this is how it is called.
