Russian Made Clear is a new book for beginners. It introduces practical language in a strictly logical order. Explanations are clear and concise, based on the principle that grammar should be treated as a means towards accurate and effective communication, not as a theoretical discipline.
Russian Made Clear has been developed over many years of successful practice with individual and group students at the Russian Language Centre, the UK’s leading centre for adult Russian studies.
Audio recordings of all texts and dialogues are available to download from the Russian Language Centre’s website, along with a library of supplementary interactive exercises.
Russian Made Clear takes students comfortably beyond CEFR Level A1 (TRKI Elementary Level). Although written with adults in mind, the book works equally well with older school and university students.
Throughout the book academic rigour is combined with wit and a sense of humour, and each lesson ends with a chapter from the story of the hapless icon expert Peter Munroe, as he becomes unwittingly caught up in a tale of romance, men in suits and forged artworks.
Russian Made Clear is practical, enjoyable and easy to use. Most importantly – it works.
