It is important to pay attention to the fact that the main principle in the selection of material is its communicative character. The textbook does not contain artificially composed dialogues and texts. All of them are written on the basis of live Russian speech. And they can be recommended for people of any age and any nationality. It is also necessary to emphasize the neutral nature of the vocabulary presented in the textbook, which allows it to be used by students with different mentalities and faiths.
The textbook has a large convenient format (A4). And color illustrations allow not only easier to learn the proposed material, but also to get acquainted with Russia: its cities, holidays, traditions, i.e. represents extensive linguistic and cultural information, which is of great importance when learning any language.
And if you need an elementary course of Russian: reading rules, pronunciation of sounds, initial information about grammar, use the textbook “Matryoshka 0”. If you need to systematize your knowledge or prepare for tests, use the textbook “Matryoshka A2-B1”.
