About This Class

Всем привет! Hello everyone!

This class is based on the imitation technique, also known as shadowing. This technique is about repeating what a speaker is saying in real time as accurately as possible.

It teaches you to listen to the sounds, word stresses, intonation patterns of Russian and trains you to make those same sounds yourself. It helps you train your muscles, like a workout for your mouth.

This technique may help you reduce your accent and improve pronunciation faster. 

This class is best for pre-intermediate level and higher.

The topic of the text is about my plans for the weekend. It’s a great topic to practice small talk which is an essential part of everyday conversations.

Hope you will find it useful. Enjoy:)

They will be pauses between sentences and parts of the sentences. And in these bosses are, you will need to repeat exactly what they see. If you find this step challenging, difficult. So repeat this step again and again until you feel confident enough to move on to the next step. In the third step, you will hear me read the text again. And your task is to repeat the executive or themes scene, but at the same time as I'm saying it. So this may be challenging because he will have to listen to me and repeat at the same time simultaneously. So if it's challenging, if you'll treat to repeat this step a few times so that you can feel confident about this. And that's it. Hope you going to find it useful for you. And you can feel more confident speaking Russian with natives. 3. Step 1. Listen and Follow the Text: Pick unit blown and the adenine subcortical can reach now little spine.
