  1. I had never heard of “dual” language books before stumbling on this blog! What a fantastic idea!

    My only concern is pronunciation and speech when learning the foreign language. They are definitely a great tool to learn grammar and structure but I ultimately want to know how to speak in my target language. I’ve been using this Eton Institute Russian phrasebook on my iPhone for the one reason that it includes audio aids by native Russian speakers. All I have to do is repeat what I hear!

  2. Hi Ash,

    Dual language books (some publishers use the terms “bilingual” or “parallel text”) have been around for a long time.

    Some learners find it useful to supplement their readings with an audiobook version of the target-language text. I don’t think it will work with the Dickens (it’s a new translation) but it’s easy to find Russian audiobooks for most or all of the stories in the “Queen of Spades” collection from the same publisher.

    With a written and audio version of the same story, you can do any combination of the following: (a) listen and follow along with the book in front of you; (b) read the book with no audio accompaniment; (c) listen closely to the audio until you understand every word, going back and replaying short segments if necessary; or (d) make it easier to understand by using sound-editing software that slows down the tempo without lowering the pitch.

    Good points Steve,

    We’re currently exploring the idea of Audio Book production for our Titles with new, original translations, as that could be incredibly beneficial to language learning students!

    Thanks for visiting!
