Reading is an essential part of the learning process. If you can read well, you can open almost all the doors to the information on different languages. But nothing will help you there as much as practice. So, these tips and resources will help you to develop your skills every day.
Our main advice — start with thematic texts in Russian!
This is relevant for those who have just started learning Russian. The texts can be about everything: nature, family, house, seasons, transport, etc. First of all, you need to translate the words you don’t know as well as learn such texts by heart. In addition to this, try to speak aloud and tell these texts to yourself (even though this advice may seem strange). The results will appear soon and you’ll practice both understanding of the language, speaking and vocabulary.
