          Ло́ндон, 1872

  Позво́льте мне нача́ть с представле́ния таи́нственного англи́йского джентльме́на по и́мени Фи́леас Фогг.

         Большинство́ люде́й ма́ло зна́ют о нём, но так как он ка́ждый день де́лает одно́ и то же, не́которые лю́ди ду́мают, что зна́ют о нём всё. Он о́чень краси́вый, и он настоя́щий джентльме́н. Он, безусло́вно, бога́т, но никто́ не зна́ет, как он зарабо́тал де́ньги.

        Он когда́-нибу́дь был в друго́й стране́? Он мо́жет показа́ть мно́го стран на ка́рте ми́ра и зна́ет са́мые невероя́тные ве́щи о них. Возмо́жно, он когда́-то путеше́ствовал, но не́которые наста́ивают на том, что он не покида́л Ло́ндон мно́го лет.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

STEVE NICHOLSON – UK

I have had the pleasure of trying several products from Kristina. I am always amazed at her professional attitude. Yes, she runs a business but she always makes me feel that my learning is important to her. The dual reader books and films are an investment in my language learning. I would have no hesitation in recommending her work to family and friends. When I have had questions, they have been answered quickly and that builds trust.

ANOUK NATHAN – FRANCE

I really enjoyed this book. It’s very helpful to be able to use audio and written text. The translated parts are well chosen, although I had to look for some additional words in the dictionary. I think that without Kristina’s work I’d never been able to read this book in Russian!

CSOVÁK TÜNDE – HUNGARY

The book is excellently down-graded to pre-intermediate (A2) level. This is a very good way of learning a foreign language, through a highly interesting story. The down-grading is important as it can be very intimidating and exhausting if you keep on reading and 50-60% you do not understand and have to look up in the dictionary all the time, breaking the experience and the flow. The English equivalents are perfect, all in all, this material is a very motivating one and an easy way, making language learning a great fun.

ERIC – USA

It’s really tough to find good graded readers that are appropriate for my level, as someone who isn’t a complete beginner but also hasn’t moved up to the intermediate level yet. Fortunately, this one was right at my level. I was able to read at a decent rate without having to constantly stop and look up words, but I also learned some new words by seeing them come up over and over again. The story is a classic and is interesting enough to keep you reading in spite of it being tough. I recommend it for anyone who’s been self-studying for a while and is struggling to break into the intermediate stage. I wish there were more graded readers at exactly this level!

MAURO – ITALY

I found this book absolutely useful. The content is exactly what I expected and I learned many new words. I really liked the step-by-step translations that you find at every page of the novel, that is very comfortable. With the mp3 files I also could read and try to mirror Kristina pronunciation. Very good product!

SUE-ANN TESCHKE – AUSTRALIA

I love these readers because they don’t have a full translation and only difficult words translated as I find it much harder to read with a full translation. All the levels were perfect and I would enjoy many more books in this style. I would definitely recommend these as a perfect way to improve your Russian.

G. WOLODZKO – POLAND

The story of Phileas Fogg and his servant is interesting and engaging, and most importantly, it is written in simple language adapted to my level. The book uses vocabulary that expands my vocabulary in Russian. The audio files that come with the book are a great idea. I recommend it to anyone who would like to expand their vocabulary in Russian in an easy and pleasant way.

MARIA CULMER – UK

Really enjoyed this. Although I knew the story, reading it in Russian made it even more fun. I knew what was coming but I still wanted to read and find out more about Phileas Fogg!! The language is a little more challenging, there are participles, but this is in line with the level being written for. This was about my level. I was able to read quite comfortably, but was challenged in places which is what you need in order to learn. Great book and would highly recommend!

JEFFREY HUME – Canada

The book is excellent! I enjoyed reading it very much. As is true for all the learning materiaIs you produce, it was invaluable in learning new vocabulary and the audio was great for improving listening skills. It was an excellent fit for my level of Russian and I would definitely recommend it to others studying Russian. It would be an invaluable teaching tool for them to own.

GERALD BADET – USA

I really enjoyed the book and the accompanying audio! Since I knew the original story and plot in my native language, I was able to learn the associated vocabulary in my target language (Russian) easily. This was made possible by the associated audio, in two different speed (slow and normal). My level allowed me to skip the slow Russian version, as the normal level is still slower than the regular Russian native speaker’s speed.
This book fits my level and is very convenient to listen to on the go as well.
I definitely would recommend this book and any other from a different level to all Russian learners. It greatly improved my listening skills and comprehension.
