"I Love Russian" Coursebook Series 
Levels A1 - B1.2


"I Love Russian" is a well-illustrated, contemporary series designed in accordance with the communicative "can do" approach to learning languages.


It is fully compliant with CEFR and offers gradual progression from Beginner to First Certificate Level (TORFL 1). 


Each book has a good balance of theory and practice, covering between 80 to 200 hours of classroom work, and it can be adapted to lessons of varied intensity and to groups of different sizes and abilities.

All of  the "I Love Russian" listening materials are of high quality and were recorded by professional actors. The pace of each audio corresponds to the level of difficulty of the coursebook. Listening exercises are accessible via QR codes inside each lesson. In some lessons video materials are used as well as the audio.

Each level of "I Love Russian" consists of a coursebook and keys for self-study (purchased separately). Teacher's books are available for levels A1 and A2.  Customers have the choice of either print or digital formats.

"I Love Russian" Coursebooks

Levels A1 and A2 have a similar modular structure. Each unit introduces students to new grammar and vocabulary which they then put into practice with the help of exercises. The grammar is taught using the communicative method by means of pictures, dialogues, monologues or short texts.


At the end of each lesson students can find a list of new vocabulary, various self-study exercises (suitable for homework) and illustrated grammar tables for ease of reference. The units conclude with a section called «Свобода слова» ("Freedom of speech”), which offers various topics for discussion with the aim of developing and improving speaking skills.


The coursebooks for levels B1.1 and B1.2 are structured differently to A1 and A2. The first part of each lesson is focused on topic discussion, new vocabulary, word morphology and syntax. The second part is dedicated to practising new grammar.
