These readers have greatly helped me in my learning. My reading and spelling have improved, and I often play the audio of the book while doing chores around the house to help my understanding of spoken Russian. It’s a great combination because I noticed that I was reading well, but when playing the audio alone, I couldn’t follow the story at all in the beginning. Now, I’m getting the best of both worlds! I absolutely recommend these books and hope there are more to come! Thank you for the audio accompaniment!
