Encouraging children to read Russian books or listening to Russian audio books will help them to learn a second language.

Teachers frequently ask for suggestions on some of the best bilingual Russian books for children. Some popular stories that we offer in Russian are Farmer Duck, Goose Fables, and The Giant Turnip, which is an adaption of a humorous Russian folktale. Many of these books can become “Talking Books” when used with the PENpal Recorder Pen.

Read on for some interesting information about the Russian language...

Where is it spoken? Russian is the national language of Russia, as well as Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan. It’s also widely used in other European countries like Ukraine, Latvia, and Estonia. Russian is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. There are approximately 260 million speakers worldwide. It’s one of six official languages of the United Nations.

How many people speak Russian in the US? According to 2016 US Census data, there are just over 900,000 Russian speakers in the US, with large Russian speaking populations in New York, New Jersey, California, Washington and Oregon.

Interesting Facts About Russian

In the mid-1700s, there were three recognized styles of written Russian: Low, middle and high. Low style was used in everyday correspondence, middle for prose and poetry, and high for poetry and religion. Ultimately, middle style became the standard Russian of today.

The Russian language also makes use of patronyms, which convey lineage by using the names of male ancestors. A person’s first name is combined with a form of his/her father’s name and -ovich (son of) or -ovna (daughter of) is added onto the end. For example, if Natasha’s father’s name is Ivan, you would address her as Natasha Ivanovna.
