    Russian in Exercises, Russian Verbs of Motion

    My girlfriend just got back from the Ukraine, and she picked up a couple of books for me. Just wondering if anyone else has used either of these books?

    1) Русский язык в упражнениях (для говорящих на английском языке)
    2) Глаголы движения в русском языке (для говорящих на английском языке)

    I think they're pretty good so far, but I've just briefly looked through them, and am only at the beginning...

    You would get better responses if you included information about AUTHOR. The titles are too generic to determine what books you are talking about.

    These books by I. Pulkina and somebody do not have the answers to their exercises, Correct?

    I have one on GRammar and I think Waxwing has one too.

    I used (and still using!!) those books at the beginning. I guess you meant Khavronina's book, don't you? I took the spanish edition, so I don't know exactly if you were talking about the same books.

    To my mind, "Русский язык в упражнениях (для говорящих на английском языке)" is the reference's book for beginners.
    Russian grammar is just practice, and Khavronina fulfils it.
    "Жди, когда других не ждут,
    Позабыв вчера.
    Жди, когда из дальних мест
    Писем не придет,
    Жди, когда уж надоест
    Всем, кто вместе ждет.

    Жди меня, и я вернусь,
    Не желай добра
    Всем, кто знает наизусть,
    Что забыть пора".

    I think you're talking about Khavronina's book. It's pretty good for the beginning because practise is very important and we know that russian is quite a difficult language to learn so this bookin will help u.

    Yes is the Khavronina book is good, have already tested it. I've heard however the Pulkina is sometimes not easy to understand. Don't now if this is true.

    Yeah, I have the Havronina / Shirochenskaja book. It's an excellent book for lots and lots of grammar practice through lots and lots of exercises...

    However, if you use this book as a beginner, make sure you have a handy dictionary (my suggestion is this one if you want a digital one...it's great, and it's free, which makes it even greater : http://www.multitran.ru/c/m.exe?a=DownloadFile&HL=1)

    The reason I say you need a dictionary is because the English used in it is basically limited ONLY to the instructions for the exercises. There are a few random translations of a few words...but we're not talking that many.

    So, if you're looking for exercises and drills with a decent amount of vocab, then yeah, this book is very good.

    I use both of them and specially 'The Verbs; its regime etc...' is very useful. I go to it every day: The other book: xith solutions is also useful; however only for the basic level. It's qlso q good book.
