Based on the Speech Plasma Method, this book for beginners has proved to be ideal for students of Russian who would like to start to speak the language fluently at a very early stage. The volume consists of three sections: Fifty Topics (Present Simple), Special Training on Past Simple and Fifty Topics (Past Simple). Each topic in Section One contains basic Russian grammar structures that correspond to be, can, have, there is and other basic verbs in Present Simple in English. Section Two of the book is aimed at the development of the learner's fluency in speech through fluency practice drills. The drills are similar to physical exercises that can be practised regularly, repeated over and over again, concentrating either on their intensity and force or on rapidness and speed. Fluency training on Past Simple structures help the students of Russian improve their speaking skills. Each topic in Section Three is a story narrated in Past Simple and is a kind of supplement to the corresponding topic in Section One. The stories are told in simple, everyday colloquial style, and for easy reference the English text is printed alongside. This volume is a part of Russian-English series for beginners comprising Special Training, Fifty Topics and Dialogues and Summaries.
