Summary

Russian vocabulary book + Russian dictionaryThis Russian vocabulary book contains more than 3000 words and phrases which are grouped by topic to make it easier for you to pick what to learn first. On top of that, the index in the second half of the book provides you with a basic Russian-English as well as English-Russian dictionary which makes this a great resource for learners of all levels.
 
What you can expect from this book:This Russian learning resource is a combination of Russian vocabulary book and a two-way basic Russian dictionary:Part 1 - Topic based Russian vocabulary book: This is the main part of the book and represents a list of chapters each containing Russian vocabularies for a certain topic. The Russian vocabularies in the chapters are unsorted on purpose to separate remembering them from a defined alphabetical order. You can start at any chapter and dive directly into the topics that interest you the most.Part 2 - Basic English-Russian dictionary: The index in the second half of the book can be used as a basic Russian dictionary to look up words you have learned but can't remember or learn new words you need.Part 3 - Basic Russian-English dictionary: Easy to use and with just the right amount of words, this third part finishes off with a second index that allows you to look for Russian words and directly find the English translation
 
How to use this Russian vocabulary book:Not sure where to start? We suggest you first work your way through the verbs, adjectives and phrases chapters in part one of the book. This will give you a great base for further studying and already enough vocabulary for basic communication. The Russian dictionaries in part two and three can be used whenever needed to look up words you hear on the street, English words you want to know the Russian translation for or simply to learn some new words.
 
Some final thoughts:Vocabulary books have been around for centuries and as with so many things that have been around for some time, they are not very fashionable and a bit boring, but they usually work very well. Together with the basic Russian dictionary parts, this vocabulary book is a great resource to support you throughout the process of learning Russian and comes in particularly handy at times when there is no internet to look up words and phrases.

    May Sarton’s lifetime of work as a poet, novelist, and essayist inform these illuminating reflections on the creative life   In “The Book of Babylon,” May Sarton remarks that she is not a critic—except of her own work. The essay addresses questions that have haunted Sarton’s own creative practice, such as the concept of “tension in equilibrium”—balancing past and present, idea and image. She also cites poems written by others to describe the joy of writing and how we must give ourselves over to becoming the instruments of our art.   “The Design of a Novel” is about fiction writing—where ideas come from, how theme and character determine plot, the mistakes many fledgling authors make, and how and why the novel differs from the poem. Further texts examine the act of composing verse, one’s state of mind when writing poetry, the role of the unconscious, how revising is the loftiest form of creation, and how to keep growing as an artist. Throughout the collection, Sarton also warns about the dangers of trying to analyze the creative process too closely.   A book that doesn’t separate art from the artist’s life, Writings on Writing is filled with Sarton’s trademark imagery and insights, letting us know we’re in the hands of a master.

    This new edition of Comparative Grammar of Italian and French is the ideal reference book for those who would like to learn and compare Italian and French simultaneously. 
    It is designed not only for beginners who do not have an extensive knowledge of grammar, yet need a guide through the grammatical concepts of all mentioned above languages, but also intermediate and advanced students who would like to have a reference book of several Romance languages at once. 
    Comparative Grammar of Italian and French can also be used for either independent study or for learners in classes of all types. It presents a clear and easy-to-read description of the Italian and French grammar with chapters divided into nouns, pronouns, verbs, prepositions, articles, etc. detailing how each of the two Romance languages operate. The book is well-organized, neatly tabulated, with separate subheadings for topics that require a little more language-specific discussion. 
    This edition features: 
    - Detailed contents section and index for easy access to information. 
    - Hundreds of illustrative and authentic examples.- Coverage of all the grammatical aspects and useful expressions. 
    - Sections on the geographical, historical and cultural facts of the Italian- and French-speaking world. 
    This book is written for learners who are particularly fond of or would like to concentrate on learning Italian and French or just to get an all-round knowledge of these two Romance languages. 
    Furthermore, I have aimed to create a useful and must-have book for all those interested in the two main and most wide-spread Neo-Latin languages - Italian and French with concise and clear explanations of all grammatical areas and numerous practical examples taken from current Italian and French usage.
