Russian language podcast launched


My name is Tatiana. I am Timur's wife.

We've launched a new project: Russian language podcast.

Each five to seven minute audio contains a short explanation of meaning for three pairs of words (antonyms) and some examples of their use. A full transcript in PDF format is available for each episode.

As for the choice of words, the great inspiration for me was a book by E. R. Laskareva called "Прогулки по русской лексике".

In our audio files you can hear the fragments of the following musical compositions:

  • Marceau "Boogy Doggy"
  • Olga Scotland "Coffee Morning"
  • Scott Holmes "Giving Logo".

We really need your comments and suggestions to make this podcast more useful for you!

Thank you for your attention!
