"Better than the Simpsons!"
Danine Falcon, Adjunct Instructor in Russian
U.S. Naval Academy
"These cartoons are brilliant. They really help students to visualise the dialogues and bring them to life. My students love them and keep singing the songs. A very valuable addition to the Ruslan Russian course".
Dr Irena Kell
IB Russian Teacher, Cambridge
The animations have been produced by Alexander Menshikov in Kaliningrad, using the original Ruslan audio recordings.
For learners there is a double DVD set with menu options to play the whole story with and without subtitles or to select individual scenes from the lessons.
For schools and universities who want to use the cartoons systematically there is the option of a USB version with permission to show the films to groups or to network them on the school's IT system. Initial licences will run for three years.
