RUSLAN 1 LESSON 9
THEATRE PROGRAMME. EXERCISE ON STRESS IN RUSSIAN NAMES. Page 126.
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 theatre programme on page 126, and a spare copy of the text as a pdf for you to print out.
Before you listen to the recording, use a pencil to mark where you think the stresses are in the names, and in two names mark the letter ё.
Listen to the text, and correct your first efforts.
Mark in any more stress marks that you can remember from the recording.
Listen again, correct where necessary, and continue the process until all the marks are correct.
