Nice book.

The idea of the book is fantastic, the selection of stories is good, the quality of the articles about the writers is excellent. The Russian text has to be fixed

Great stories.

The stories are great for building vocabulary and improving reading ability, but the stories are fairy tales. Personally, I would prefer to build vocabulary, improving reading ability while learning more about Russia--geography, culture, etc.

It is a goal.

The book starts with an excellent explanation of how to approach reading it. Definitely worthwhile and being able to someday read it is a goal.

This book is exactly what I was looking.

This book is exactly what I was looking for: Stories that are reasonably easy to follow but a bit challenging, broken up into short sections just right for bedtime reading, and entertaining enough to keep me interested.

This book is best for us

There are so few books out there for beginning Russian learners! It is really fun ways to understand when you finish! Even if you don't learn any vocab (which I definitely did) the reading practice with given pdf totally worth it. It made me have hope that someday I might be able to read the other Russian books I already bought but that were way too hard.

Worth to listen!!!

The stories are great for building vocabulary and improving listening skills in Russian. Personally, I would prefer to build vocabulary, improving pronunciation while learning more about Russian language.

Awesome guide for all

The vocabulary of this audio book is excellent for students, and the speaker repeat many of the verbs and other vocabulary in each story so as to reinforce them. Overall I thought it was an excellent audio book for beginner’s students of Russian language.

Misnomer Much?

I’m studying Russian (obviously), and during the day I use the Duolingo app and will purchase a workbook. At night, I like to listen to Russian speakers as I fall asleep. By the title I expected, well, short stories. Halfway through it switched to some kind of “So You Want To Learn Another Language” bs. At first it seemed clever with the (dull but beggars can’t be choosers) reading having two people speak: One in Russian then spoken in English

Good job.

Their method is clever! The author stories really grab your attention and keep you interested though I would have preferred only one story for the whole book.

Great beginner's collection.

The method of learning is interesting and effective. My language skills are somewhat below what they should be for this particular book but I feel that my vocabulary is increasing.

useful, but it could have been better

This is a useful resource to improve your Russian, but it could have been much better. In summary, the pros are:  -A collection of texts with a lot of useful vocabulary, divided up in easily-digestible chunks a few minute long.  -Recordings for all the texts by a Russian native speaker with a pleasant voice. -Fairly low price. Cons: -Texts are not specific to Russia and are a little dull. -No accent marks in the Russian text. Here is a more detailed review. This book is part of a series of language book with the title: '30 stories in language X for beginners'. As far as I can tell they are based on the very same 30 "stories", which have been translated into various languages.These are not self-contained stories with a proper beginning and a conclusion, such as fairy tales or short novels. Rather, they are short texts or chapters.Out the 30 chapters, 20 are about are about an English family and their day-to-day activities: going to work, doing the washing up, going on a trip to Disneyland, walking the dog. The remaining 10 chapters deal with a miscellanea of topics related to day-to-day life (2 cooking recipes, a description of Chester, texts on the role of smartphones and of the Internet in modern society, a chapter on how to choose a holiday destination...). Each chapter is about three minute long, for a total running time of about one hour and a half. The vocabulary introduced is good and useful, but the texts are a little dull: don't expect cliffangers, big adventures or a lot of humour. Also, the stories have absolutely nothing to do with Russia, so you won't learn anything about Russian traditions, culture, proverbs, idioms and so on. What we are dealing with is, pretty much, a translation into Russian of an intermediate-level English primer. If you are looking for something more entertaining and specific to Russia I'd rather recommend the 'Rasskaz' series by Ignaty Dyakov. Another qualm is that the Russian texts in the PDF do not have accent marks, which are indispensable to beginners if they want to learn the correct pronunciation of words; having the audio is obviously useful, but it does not make up for the missing stress marks. In fact, in a Russian book for learners I'd like to see all sorts of information concerning words with pronunciation peculiarities (e.g., words such as энергия or теннис, which are pronounced as if they were spelled энэргия and тэннис). As stated in its title this book has 30 chapters, however the audio version has more than 90 sections. This is because the whole book is presented three times: in the first run there it alternates a few sentences in Russian, then the same sentences in English, and so on. Personally I don't like this format, I found it very boring to have to listen to each sentence twice and I prefer having all the Russian in one go.Then there are Russian-only recordings, and after that the English-only ones. I did not realise this structure at first, as it is explained in the last-but-one chapter, not in the first one as it should! In general, the book seems to have been put together without too much attention to details. For example, the introduction to the book is very probably the very same for all languages in the series, and in a few instances they even forgot to change the name of the language treated in the book. For example, they wrote: "To be able to speak English well, you need to expose your ears to a lot of spoken Russian." Similarly, the audio recording explaining the structure of the book has passages of the type: "thank you for buying this book for learning RUSSIAN", with the word RUSSIAN being obviously copy-pasted into a canvas; i.e., they didn't even want to write or record separate introductions for each language.  The sound quality of the audio also could be better. It's definitely sufficient, but it not as good as I'd expect from a professional product. The recordings are at 22kHz, adequate for voice recordings but not quite crystal clear and it does not add to the overall quality of the product. Finally, I have to comment on the difficulty level. The book is advertised as "for complete beginners with little to no previous experience in learning Russian" but this is simply ridiculous. A complete beginner would need to make a herculean effort to go through this book. My level is upper-intermediate and this booklet is about right for me, I understood almost all of it on the first listen but in each chapter there are still about 10-15 words which I don't know or I'm not sure about. I think a true beginner would be completely lost: you need at the very least an A2 or, better, B1 or B2 level to profit from this book.  Curiously, the English used in the translations and voice recordings is sometimes a little off, as if the text had been translated by a (competent) non-native speaker. The speaker is a woman with a rather posh English accent which sounds native, but she too sometimes sounds a little strange. As I'm interested in the Russian, however, this really does not matter.

I am teaching myself Russian.

There's no real plot -it's a book of short stories with the Russian on the left an English on the right pages. Well paced for beginning Russian readers. Gratifying sense of accomplishment as you start recognizing more an more words.

Exceptional collection of Russian short stories.

These are stories that unless you are a literary scholar you probably haven't head of them much less have read them. A great width of Russian culture. Good preface of the period, the author, and the story for each selection.

No vocabulary

Going through a dictionary to find the meaning of words would be too time consuming otherwise the stories are really very good for an intermediate student. This book is not for beginners .Other stories in some books have a vocabulary. which I think is essential.

Much appreciated creator.

I enjoyed listening and reading PDF of this book before my trip to a Russian speaking country to brush up on my Russian speaking and listening. My speaking was not amazing. This audible book definitely helped.
