Description The authors' goal is to describe the theoretical foundations of, and practical approaches to, the instilment of sociolinguistic competence by means of instruction in speech etiquette in a Russian-as-a-foreign-language lesson. The article reviews the latest research in the area of defining and forming communicative and sociolinguistic competence. The emphasis is made on instruction in the speech formulae of polite address using the full name, i.e., including the patronymic. A lesson plan on the subject “Rules of address. First name and patronymic” is suggested. A regular use of the formulae of address in communicative situations aids the development of the students' sociolinguistic competence in a Russian language lesson that aims to provide knowledge on the norms and correct use of such forms.
