I definitely would recommend this book to other Russian learners. It is a nice way to discover more words, learn new vocabulary, and practice Russian grammar constructions. The bilingual system works very well for me. I would not wish it differently. I read the book a few days before my visit to a London Theatre, where the musical ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ was performed. This way I was good prepared, and on top of that I had studied Russian during holidays. I also bought other bilingual readers and hope Kristina will continue providing study material this way. Apart from that I very much appreciate her drive to make people study the language, and the personal communication when it is needed.
