How to learn Russian correctly with educational cartoons

1. Choose a cartoon that corresponds to your level of preparation.
This is especially true for beginners learning Russian. However, we try to make cartoons so that you can watch any cartoon, regardless of your language level.

2. Watch the cartoon paying attention to words, phrases and grammatical constructions.
This increases the effectiveness of learning Russian.

3. Repeat after the cartoon characters.
It is important to do this to learn to speak Russian! You can pause while watching the cartoon, repeat the phrase a few times and continue watching the cartoon next.

4. Sing along with the cartoon characters.
Singing songs in the target language significantly increases the effectiveness of learning a foreign language. Starting from the fifth episode of the cartoon "An American in Russia" we add songs to the cartoon. We create these songs ourselves, write poems for them or use poems by great Russian poets for the songs. The songs not only immerse you in authentic Russian, but also enrich your vocabulary and allow you to experience the beauty of the Russian language.

5. Use subtitles in your native language.
This is relevant for beginners learning Russian, as it helps to quickly understand new words and phrases. However, you should not constantly turn on subtitles on YouTube! It is enough to watch the cartoon once with subtitles, and then 2-3 times without subtitles. And also watch the cartoon without subtitles the next day! You will be surprised at the effectiveness of this method! When you watch the next day you will understand everything the cartoon characters say! And most importantly - you will memorize how and what they say. And you will advance in the study of the Russian language one more step.

6. Watch cartoons several times!
This is very important. The first time you can watch a cartoon with subtitles, and then be sure to watch the cartoon several times without subtitles. And the next day also watch the cartoon two or three times. This will be enough to memorize the new words that were used in the cartoon. And what is most important - you will memorize new vocabulary in context, understanding how these words are used in speech.

7. Write down new words and phrases.
It is necessary that you memorize words on a mechanical level. After watching each cartoon, write down at least 10-15 words and phrases.

8. Practice speaking.
After you have watched a cartoon, and mastered the new material, be sure to speak the words in Russian.
