‘Practical Russian: My first six steps’ is for beginners who have already completed
the introductory pronunciation course. This book is ideal for self-studying, as it
provides detailed explanation and covers the most important basic things needed for
further independent studies. As the book is designed for learning the language in
small bits, it consists of only six lessons and is conceived to become the first out
of several mini-books altogether making up a complete beginner course. Step by step
the learner will accumulate the necessary amount of vocabulary units, get good reading
skills, acquire the rudiments of grammar and get the initial idea of word formation.
Grammar rules are illustrated with tables; the material is strictly limited and even
numbered and summarized, which makes it possible for the learner to track his or her
progress. Each lesson is provided with practical exercises.
