Russian Short Stories On Your Screen (companion title to Advanced Russian) ISBN 1-58269-054-5 (three video DVDs). Selected by Sophia Lubensky and Irina Odintsova. Directed and produced by Slava Paperno. $49.00.
Advanced Russian: From Reading to Speaking is a course for English-speaking learners of Russian with two years of college-level study of the language. The complete AR package includes: a) two soft-bound volumes from Slavica Publishers; b) the interactive multimedia application at our Cloud home page; and c) three video DVDs that can be played in any NTSC DVD player (any region). This set of DVDs, called Russian Short Stories On Your Screen, is available only from Lexicon Bridge Publishers.
The three DVDs include all twelve videos that are central to the course. We think that a teacher might enjoy using them in class with a DVD player and room projector, and an individual learner, too, may very well benefit from their superior image and sound quality, even though the same content is included in the interactive pages on this website. For artistic impression and practice in listening comprehension, watching the videos as you watch a movie on your TV is a different experience than working with short scenes, transcripts, and glossaries on your computer screen.
