How Do You Come Up with RSBS Books?

Every time we go to events, conduct trainings or seminars -  teachers, parents and most of the participants share with us their wishes, requests and hopes for new books. We are eagerly listening and diligently working on making those wishes come true.


Creating a book, even a small one, takes time. And a textbook needs not only an idea, content, cover, illustrations, sometimes audio, slides, games but also trial by fire. Testing the materials with the actual students and in real classrooms is what we aim for with every book. So after the textbook is written, checked several times by the editors in English and in Russian, it goes out to our testers, for them to use with their students. That stage of textbook creation brings s lot of value, and the feedback that comes with it is well worth the time it takes to get it.


As you can see, from the idea to the final product - the road clicking that PUBLISH NOW button for our textbooks can be quite long. You, the students and teachers, parent, grandparents and language enthusiasts -  are both our final destination and the original source of inspiration.


We love getting emails, facebook comments and messages, Pinterest likes and repins, Blog comments, tweets and Amazon reviews. We always hope that you have a positive and enriching experience with our materials. However we understand that different people have different approaches to learning/teaching Russian and we can not satisfy everyone (but we try, we really try!).


So if you have feedback - shoot us an email: whether it's with suggestions, typos, praise, criticism, stories from your classrooms or wishes for supplements, upgrades or just questions on how to best work with the materials. We read them all and we will diligently reply to you, even if you are our worst critic. We are teachers and we know that no matter how much we try, mistakes are inevitable. We remind ourselves that often we learn best when we make mistakes, so we take a deep breath, acknowledge always and correct them, whenever possible.


It has been a fun road. 7 years into this work we came from our first published book Beginner 1 in 2009 to all these 24 titles by the end of 2016!! Thank you!!
