What you are doing

  • Reading the audio script  

Your goal

  • To understand more details, because now you can recognize familiar words that you did not recognize in the audio, and try to guess the meaning of unfamiliar words by their structure or context.

How to do it better

  • Read the text (without using a dictionary!)
  • The underlined words are most likely new to you. Try to guess their meaning. Don’t use a dictionary 
  • Check your listening comprehension. What other details did you understand?

Why you are doing this

  • You are working on your reading skills, i.e. the ability to understand written Russian without relying on the dictionary.
