You can write me in Telegram and ask any questions about the stories - I will help you
Optional: do the speaking or writing task and get personal feedback from me!
You will read 6 interesting stories of 6 popular Russian writers.
How many people who learn Russian have a real skill of reading in Russian? I don't mean reading the posts on Instagram or scripts for the podcasts :) but reading a real original story or a book? Not many actually. But almost everybody wants to (all my students told me about it when they started studying with me).
This course gives a regular structured reading practice with some extra materials (like mini podcast about the story). I tell you how to read the story, and I give you my support - you can ask me for help if you don't understand something, just let me know in messenger and I will explain. When you have read the story, you can retell it to me in written or in audio message - that will help you to activate the language and vocabulary. After every retelling you will get a personal feedback from me!
You will read a lot during this month, develop your feeling of the language, enlarge your vocabulary and have fun! What's more, you will even learn to speak and write better (have you known that intensive reading makes you think in the language that influences your speaking and writing skills too?). As a bonus, you will meet famous Russian writers and touch Russian culture through these stories.

Feedback from the students
Because these are stories, rather than, say, news articles, I get exposed to colourful or useful verbs and adjectives. Sometimes, there is something richer in the sentences than a podcast transcript, for instance. Also, because of the story elements, they seem to help more with verbs of motion.
The good thing about the intensive aspect is that I need to turn around things relatively quickly. I work quite long days/hours in my job, but the need to turn these intensive tasks around more quickly almost means I don't overthink things. I just throw myself at the task and worry less about the fact that I will probably make a mess of my video. The intensive/quicker turnaround aspect is also useful because when I come to do some Russian study, I know what I need to do. Oftentimes, I would just drift a little bit with my study, because I hadn't really prepared anything in advance (Sooooo many productive hours lost!)
