    Looking for russian adapted readings with CD

    Hello everybody

    I don't know if this is the right place to put this question. Anyway, I am looking for russian ADAPTED readings WITH CD. Some thing like Penguin Readers for students of English (here is a link http://plrcatalogue.pearson.com/Topi...cAreaID=AC0023). I cannot find anyone.

    There are several adapted readings available but without CD, for example

    http://www.zlat.spb.ru/catalog5_4.html

    There are also readings with CD but not adapted:

    Can anybody help me?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Looking for russian adapted readings with CD

    Adapted books+CDs for adults are notoriously difficult to find. Do they even exist?
    You can buy a few fairy tales here: http://www.adoptedfromrussia.com/beginn ... aders.html
    This is an audio CD that comes with a read-along book. The popular folk tale is read twice on this CD: first time at a slower pace (to make it easier for beginning readers to follow) and later, at a regular pace. .

    But it's probably better to buy an adapted book, and then to find a native speaker who's willing to make an audio record for you. There's also a possibility to buy/download an unabridged audioversion to complement to your book, but it may be confusing, if you are a beginner.

    Thank you for your answer.

    The fairy tales you mention are usually hard to read (I had some similar). On the other one I don't know any native speaker who can record the audio for me. I have lots of adapted books and may be I try to read them aloud and record my own voice ...

    Anyway, I sent a message to the publishing Zlatous and I suggested them to record their adapted books. However I haven't got any answer yet.
