RUSLAN 1 LESSON 8
CEMETERIES. EXERCISE ON STRESS IN RUSSIAN NAMES
One of the most difficult things for foreign learners of Russian is to remember the stress in Russian family names and place names.
Below is a recording of the cemetery exercise on page 115, and a link to a pdf file which is a copy of the text for you to print out.
Before you listen to the recording, use a pencil to mark in the stresses on the names that you think you know.
Listen to the text, and correct your first efforts.
Then mark in any more stress marks that you can remember from the recording.
Listen again, correct where necessary, and continue the process until you have put in all the stress marks.
