Summary

Improve your Russian skills and grow your vocabulary with these 10 entertaining Russian short stories!

The best part of learning a new language is experiencing the culture and diving into activities that will enrich your life and vocabulary. The best way to learn a new language is by listening, and in this Russian book you will find yourself listening to get to the end of each captivating story that will engage your mind and help you improve your Russian.

In this book, you will find:

  • Ten captivating stories among topics that you will find easy to relate to
  • The stories are broken down into manageable chapters, so you always make progress with the story.
  • Carefully written stories with you as an intermediate level listener in mind, using straightforward grammar and commonly used words so you can enjoy listening while learning new grammatical structures without being overwhelmed
  • Plenty of natural dialogues in each story that you would actually use in an everyday conversation, which will drastically improve your speaking and comprehension ability at the same time!
  • At the end of each chapter, there will be a comprehensive guide specially designed for beginner level readers. It will take you through a summary of each story followed by a vocabulary of some of the words from the story to make sure that you understand the story fully.

Chapter by chapter, you will find yourself effortlessly following along each story. Not struggling like in basic textbooks or boring listens. You will get involved by listening to the dialogue of the characters by learning how to express yourself in different contexts and more importantly by learning new Russian words that will get you closer to your goal of becoming fully conversational.

very good collection of short stories

It's a very nice collection of short texts in Russian at an intermediate level. The stories are well written and interesting. The speaker has a very good, very clear voice. Unfortunately the text doesn't report stress marks of words, and that's why I gave it four stars instead of five. The book is a bit on the short side: each story is only about 7 minute long, for a total of 1h14m of actual reading time (the rest of the audio are summaries, vocabulary and other material).
In any case I highly recommend this book for Russian learners.

A good challenge for intermediate learners

This is another good book from Lingo Mastery and you can expect the same format as the other short stories. The stories cover various aspects of normal life but the texts will push you to learn lesser known vocabulary.

If you already have a good level of Russian beyond the basics then this book will push you further. I would highly recommend this book.

Interesting stories

I like the content of the stories themselves and I also like how they aren't translated into English. There's a summary in English but not a translation of the entire text. I think that's a good way to test yourself and see if you really understood what you read.

Great challenge for improving your Russian skills

After purchasing the beginners edition and enjoying it so much, I did not think twice before going for this one too.

It's a great challenge, way harder than the beginners edition, but for making improvements we have to step out of our comfort zone, and this book does a great job walking us through that journey.

Highly recommended for anyone with a cool Russian language base, looking for improvements to reach an intermediate level.
