Learning Russian Verbs

About the Book

Much of language learning requires the student to learn words, sounds and patterns by heart. In the same way that a body builder improves their strength, the language learner needs to regularly flex their language muscles.

This book will help you revise Russian verbs. The verbs are presented in groups by subject and learning objectives to help with memorisation.

We are making the book available free of charge during the early stages of its development.
