Introducing Red Square Russian, an exciting course that bridges the gap in materials for GCSE preparation.

Created by Stephen Rich, a teacher of Russian at Winchester College, Red Square Russian has everything you need to get your Russian studies off to a flying start and achieve success at GCSE and beyond.

Books 1, 2 and the Teacher's Booklets are currently available. Book 3 is expected in September 2021. Listening materials can be purchased separately or as a bundle with the Teacher's Booklets.  


RSR Book 1
Book 1 covers all you would hope to learn in your first year of studying Russian: basic biographical details, free time, school, work, etc. It assumes a working knowledge of the printed alphabet, but little else. Grammar is introduced in a step-by-step manner. Each chapter contains reading, listening, speaking, writing and grammar activities and there is a wide range of exercise types to prevent things from becoming boring. By the end of the book learners will be able to cope with texts at a good GCSE level.

RSR Book 2
Book 2 takes learners to an excellent GCSE level with coverage of more advanced grammar and exercises geared towards the new GCSE, such as the picture discussion and reading comprehension based on literary extracts. Lesson topics include "My Town and Region", "Special Occasions", "Shopping", "Internet and Technology", and many others. There is a Russian-English glossary at the end of the book containing the words used, and grammar tables.  


Teacher's Booklets & Audio   
Teacher's Booklets and Audio materials are an  essential accompaniment to each Red Square Russian textbook. Each Teacher's Booklet includes transcripts of and answers to all listening exercises. The audio materials, recorded by Stephen and Olga Rich, are supplied on USB drives in MP3 format.




What others say about Red Square Russian.....

"The end result is a high quality, well-designed and beautifully illustrated resource for school pupils working towards GCSE... this is timely and much-needed addition to the limited range of Russian textbooks. Stephen has produced an exciting range of fun and easy-to-follow, yet stretching, exercises that cover all the four key skills in sections arranged by topic. There's a gradual progression in difficulty through the book, disguised by a friendly and humorous style. The charming audio clips...are clear and at a pleasing speed compared with some frustratingly slow GCSE listening exercises." ISMLA Magazine Review 2018.
