LOOK INSIDE

          Жил-был ста́рый вдове́ц с до́черью. Пото́м мужчи́на жени́лся во второ́й раз на же́нщине, у кото́рой то́же была́ дочь. Же́нщина обожа́ла родну́ю до́чку, хвали́ла её при ка́ждом удо́бном слу́чае, но не люби́ла па́дчерицу. Во всех де́йствиях де́вушки она́ ви́дела оши́бки и заставля́ла её весь день усе́рдно рабо́тать.

     Одна́жды стару́ха реши́ла изба́виться от па́дчерицы раз и навсегда́. Она́ приказа́ла му́жу:

      – Отвези́ её куда́-нибудь, что́бы я её бо́льше не ви́дела и не слы́шала. Отвези́ в холо́дный лес и оста́вь там.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

DAN FLICK – USA

I am currently reading this collection of Russian stories and they are very entertaining to me. As in part 1 of this series, I had never heard ANY of these stories which made them even more interesting. Everyone studying Russian should read these stories as these stories are well known to Russians. My wife is Russian and loved these stories as a child in the same way Americans liked stories like Cinderella. I enjoyed all books in the series. I cannot recommend them highly enough, they are all that good.

MARIA CULMER – UK

Really enjoyed these tales. The stories are 4-5 pages long, just right for one sitting. There was lots of new vocab for me, but having it embedded in a story helps with retention. The level was slightly higher than my level but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the tales, it just meant I needed to rely on the prompts more. An excellent resource for learners of Russian – I would highly recommend.
