Я люблю русский язык Russian Textbook

Introduction to the Russian
textbook series "I love Russian"

I love Russian (Я люблю русский язык) is a new, illustrated educational book series aimed at international students studying Russian. We currently offer I love Russian A1 (beginner), I love Russian A2(elementary - pre-intermediate), I love Russian B1.1 (intermediate) and I love Russian B1.2 (intermediate plus). The levels and content of the books are compliant with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). All course books come with extensive original and authentic audio material, accessible by smartphone or web browser. The books are written entirely in Russian and are designed to be used primarily in a classroom setting, for both group and individual students.

I love Russian has a clear structure and - in accordance with the communicative approach to language teaching - introduces all grammar aspects through useful real life situations, encouraging students to actively use their newly acquired skills. It is a dynamic textbook with clear explanations, thoughtful exercises and texts which inspire discussion.

Each unit in A1 and A2 contains a list of new vocabulary and various self-study exercises (suitable for homework) and concludes with «Свобода слова» (freedom of speech), a section which offers various topics for discussion with the aim of developing and improving speaking skills. At the end of each book, students will find illustrated grammar tables for ease of reference.

All texts and exercises reflect contemporary life in Russia while drawing attention to the rich cultural heritage preserved in Russia’s history, literature, music and traditions.

I love Russian has been written by an academic team of Russian language teachers working at the Liden & Denz Intercultural Institute of Languages. The textbooks have been tried and tested extensively at our campuses in St. Petersburg, Moscow and Irkutsk.
