I have created this site to help students of Russian to read and understand original short stories and build their vocabulary and reading skills.
How does it work?

✿  First go to the top of this page and select a story in Level 1 (beginner) Level 2 (intermediate) or Level 3 (advanced).
Read a segment in Russian and English (I tried to stay as close to the structure of the sentence as possible. Keep in mind, Russians invert sentences quite often, the translation might look a bit awkward.)
Listen to a recording a few times, matching it to the written words.
✿ Read a whole segment out loud paying close attention to pronunciation. Try to imitate the reader! 

I hope this will help you in your studies.
Enjoy reading and learning!

  1. Вольшое спасибо Елена, очень полезный сайт! А я заметил маленькую проблему в “Слон”. Когда я слушал рассказ на Саундклауде, я узнал что часть 7 повторится, так что у нас нет восьмого. В любом случае, не серёзно – мне кажется это легко починить!


  2. Amazing website. For learning the language and also to get a little glimpse at Russian literature. And a huge thanks for going even further with these tails and making the vocabulary even easier for beginners. Greetings from Uruguay


  3. Do you have an offline version? I sometimes have problems with SoundCloud and it would be nice to have a zip file with all the stories and recordings.
