Our features

    Our textbooks harmoniously combine the communicative and grammatical-translation method. We are inspired by textbooks on all other foreign languages, modern journals and methodological developments in the field of teaching foreign languages, both modern and time-tested.
  • Useful phrases and dialogues
    The main task in creating the textbooks "New Souvenir" and "Surprise" was to create textbooks that help students learn phrases that native speakers use in everyday speech. We selected the most useful phrases and dialogues that teach the students to express joy, surprise, skepticism, discontent and much more. The textbooks also offer Russian idioms and proverbs that help to better understand native speakers and the Russian mentality.
  • Grammar
