LOOK INSIDE

          Меня́ зову́т профе́ссор Аронáкс. Моя́ рабо́та – изуча́ть всё живо́е и мёртвое, что нахо́дится под водо́й. Там я встреча́ю и прекра́сные, и уро́дливые ве́щи. Но оди́н стра́нный слу́чай до сих пор живёт в мое́й па́мяти, сло́вно ночно́й кошма́р.

          Э́то был 1867 год. Моряки́ расска́зывали, что ви́дели опа́сного гига́нтского мо́нстра, кото́рый жил в холо́дных во́дах океа́на. Не́сколько корабле́й отпра́вились на охо́ту за ним, но они́ так и не верну́лись.

          Лю́ди говори́ли, что монстр был похо́ж на кита́.

          – Он был длино́й в 300 фу́тов!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

MICHAEL CRINALL – AUSTRALIA

These readers are fantastic! The back of the book clearly shows the number of vocabulary you’ll acquire and the words are high on the most commonly used so that your vocab is targeted to practical Russian, unique words are in bold and listed in each section so that use of a dictionary is minimized. Meaning you have a true sense of achievement once you’ve finished working with the book.

One of the best features of these books is that they are ranked so you can start with the lowest level and continue upwards as your reading improves.

Acquisition language through stories has been proven to be one of the most effective ways to learn a language and these readers are the perfect size and format to keep around the house to refer back to or reread. The layout makes them easy to write notes in and the comprehension prompts highlight where you might need to review the story. I highly recommend to anyone studying Russian!

Of course, the best part is that these are classic stories that have stood the test of time so you know they’ll always be interesting, engaging and fun to read!

WAYNE WALKER – USA

This was my first read from Kristina. I loved it. Good story, great vocabulary review. I think I’ve read and reread it dozens of times now. What I especially appreciate is the intelligent choice of words that are translated for you in the book. So many books that try to be similar translate words such as ‘но’-‘but’ but then leave untranslated much harder words. It’s as if they’re not even reading their own book. Not so with Kristina. You sense the hand of a real instructor at work.

Thank you so much.
