This grammar book will delight beginners of Russian as a Foreign Language. Its colourful material and English translation make the experience of learning grammar live and dynamic.

Drawing on British research ("Cute Cats Could Be Key to Learning New Languages": Carolyn Rice, BBC News), as well as on a famous character created by Alexander Pushkin (the Wise Cat), the authors devised the Cat Vasily, a professor who has 3 assistants: Anfisa the Cat, Zhorik the Parrot and Mag the Cat. Mag, the magician, introduces students to Russian nouns and their endings, explaining the magic of Russian words.

The authors deliberately leave the teacher in a supporting role so that students will feel comfortable interacting mainly with Vasily, Anfisa, Zhorik and Mag. The characters address students throughout the book, asking them questions and asking for questions from the students, which makes the book interactive and entertaining. When needed, the teacher can help with more difficult questions.

Special attention is paid to the way the material is presented, addressing students' emotional memory. Carefully designed illustrations for grammar and vocabulary help students to memorise material easily, and the karaoke from Zhorik is an entertaining aid for learning Russian songs.

The authors avoid the words "lesson", "assignment" and "exercise". The characters in the book address students by giving them "tips" based on their "life experience" and lead them to exercises without describing them as such.

The essence of this book is explained in its title: "Fun Russian". It is hoped that the seeds of joy in learning Russian with this amusing book will turn into powerful sprouts of love for Russian culture.
