Studying the Russian Language has never been so much fun! Today there more ways than ever before to learn a new language, but this has not stopped Study Pubs from adding our own innovative twist to the mix of language learning study aids, specifically our Russian Dual Language Books! Most recently we added to our collection “A Christmas Carol: Dual Language Reader (English/Russian)”, which features a new original Russian translation of ”A Christmas Carol” by Veronika I. Livshits.
Why a dual language story book with “A Christmas Carol”? Because it’s one World’s most famous (and fun!) stories of all time! Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” is a story about one stingy, sour and cranky man’s life transformation after being visited and shown the light by four supernatural spirits: Scrooge’s old business partner Marley, the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Future. By Christmas morning Scrooge is a new man with a heart revitalized & filled with genuine love!
Veronika Livshits’ modern Russian expression of the story combined with the original Charles Dickens’ manuscript of “A Christmas Carol” makes this dual language reader the perfect supplement for any student wishing to learn Russian, whether they are studying in or out of the classroom.
*Reading Tip for both Russian & English Language learners: In “A Christmas Carol” you will find that Dickens labeled the five chapters of the book as “staves”, (or “ЯВЛЕНИЕ” in Russian); a stave is a song or stanza, Dickens labeled the chapters this way to keep with the spirit of the book’s title.
