COURSE COMPONENTS

Book I:  “Introduction into Basic Russian” is the 1st out of the three course books. The course is quite short and may be used as a self-study guide. It consists of 9 steps. Its aim is to familiarize students with Russian sounds before they start learning any basic course at their option. This introductory course suggests that students should go from a sound to a word and from a word to a phrase (rather than immediately start learning the alphabet), and this is the main principle which the guide is based on. Although the introduction to the main course is focused on sounds, learners will get the most necessary initial knowledge of grammar and acquire initial reading skills. In terms of language competencies, this short introductory course meets a considerable part of requirements specified for level A1. It can also be a good addition to your in-class activities. The brochure is included into a set of free materials.

Book II: “Practical Russian: My First Six Steps” is the 2nd out of the three course books. This part is for beginners who have already completed the introductory pronunciation course. It provides detailed explanation and covers the most important basic things needed for further independent studies. Step by step the learner will accumulate the necessary amount of vocabulary units, get good reading skills, acquire the rudiments of grammar and get the initial idea of word formation. Grammar rules are illustrated with tables. Vocabulary units are provided with transcription. The number of sentence patterns is also limited; the patterns are illustrated by examples and included into the reading section of each lesson. In terms of language competencies, this elementary mini-course meets a considerable part of requirements specified for level A2. Can be a good addition to your in-class activities. The brochure is included into a set of free materials.

Book III: “Practical Russian: Steps Seven to Ten” is a follow-up to the course “Practical Russian: My first six steps”. Like the preceding part, it provides detailed explanation and covers the most important basic things needed for further independent studies. Step by step the learner will accumulate the necessary amount of vocabulary units, get good reading skills, acquire the rudiments of grammar and get the initial idea of word formation. Grammar rules are illustrated with tables. Vocabulary units are provided with transcription. The number of sentence patterns is also limited; the patterns are illustrated by examples and included into the reading section of each lesson. In terms of language competencies, this initial basic course meets about 50% of requirements specified for the first certificate level B1. Can be used by students of higher levels to organize their knowledge.

Either the introductory part or all the three parts of the course will provide firm background necessary for you to further learn this or any other basic course of Russian at your option.

The minimum duration of the whole course is 4 weeks. However, the length may vary depending on a pace preferred by a learner. Even though you prefer a longer period, the price remains the same.

Being an independent learner, you can choose to order to your email either (1) a course book (PDF) only; or (2) one lesson of a course at a time (PDF) with voice recordings (MP3), plus support from the teacher (comments on the exercises done by you and sent for checking, answers to your questions, if any); or (3) both of the aforesaid.
