Ruslan Russianis a continuation of the Ruslan course to advanced level The action takes place in Irkutsk and around Lake Baikal Lyudmila and Ruslan go to visit Uncle Kolya, a pensioner in Irkutsk Lyudmila meets up with her former husband Igor Abramovich, who is director of a factory in Baikalsk, Vadim is shooting a documentary film about pollution in the lake, and Ivan is helping Peter to test a new English cream for mosquitos This is alesson course incorporating the necessary constructions for AS and A level Russian There is a large variety of reading and listening material about Russia on cultural, literary and historical themes, as well as material for developing vocabulary and communication skills will be useful in my new course Fantastic book and CD for learning Russian. This is just what is needed for further study of the Russian language The content is huge and varied, but it is accessible and interesting I was worried that it would be too difficult, but it proves to be challenging while not overwhelming It s going to keep me busy for a long time I m definitely going to buy the accompanying cds when I can, but it is perfectly usable without them.My only gripe is that there are no answers to the exercises This is good because I can t cheat and bad if you are studying without a teacher. I love the situation and topics but it is a big step from Ruslan 2 Worth the effort though. Only on chapter two at the time of writing but I m impressed Well rounded course with plenty of reading material from a traditional story following the adventures of some core characters, to thematic texts around various aspects of Russian culture Grammatical elements that are focussed on seem a little randomly chosen but are well supported in each chapter I d recommend getting the accompanying CDs to complement the texts in this book. Je suis quand m me d ue J avais fini le Ruslan 2, qui tait excellent J avais donc encha n avec le niveau 3 Toutes les sections concernant les personnages dj rencontrs en Ruslan 2 taient effectivement mon niveau mais les autres passages de lecture taient beaucoup trop difficiles Finalement, j ai abandonn Il va falloir que j attende encore un ou deux ans d tudes avant de le reprendre Un bmol les explications concernant la grammaire et le vocabulaire en anglais mais je suis anglaise ainsi que les exercices l dessus taient trs bien faits et parfaitement mon niveau. Muy buen libro Los anglosajones tienen muy buen material en ruso, en espa ol andamos cortos de literatura rusa y hay solo 4 libros Biased subject matter used as grammatical examples, i.e Under the Bolsheviks things were worse My Goodness I found the book to have a touch of propaganda about it, and the supposition that the characters all love Roman Abramovitch He s RICH and bought a football club and is richer than the Queen he also robbed Russia blind, but there ya go Anyway these are direct translations from the text used If you want to improve your Russian, the book might work, but be prepared to be assailed by Capitalist sublminations I would like to see a Russian version to Teach English I wonder what examples from American social structure they would select and which heroes.
