Reading Marathon with Tamara

Three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) we are going to read a really cool story (“Безумные пельмени» from Short stories in Russian by Olly Richards and Alex Rawlings) and work on your vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation for 15-30 minutes a day.

You can order the book and the audio  here.
Not sure about your level? Check the sample of the text with a parallel translation here.


How it works

  • LEVEL A1+/ A2
  • Start: 24 june 2019
  • Finish: 15 july 2019
  • You read one page in Russian with parallel translation in English three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) for 15-30 min. Nine episodes in total.
  • You get vocabulary with audio for every page, so you can practice your pronunciation
  • Anki flashcards for every lesson
  • You do a small test online, so I can check your progress (automatic feedback)

*STICK: if you miss two lessons in a row you loose access to the marathon.

*CARROT: if you do all tasks of the marathon, you make a chance to win a nice prize.
