Joris Van Bladel –
I recently purchased four books from Sistema Kalinka Bookshop, including Textbooks 3 and 4, as well as the tables and exercises for Russian cases and verbs of motion.
I was thoroughly impressed with the swift handling of my order and the quick delivery. Within just three working days, my order was delivered right to my doorstep.
Additionally, I had some questions related to the delivered books, and the customer service team was quick and friendly in providing answers that sorted out all my practical queries.
For those with basic knowledge of the Russian language or those looking to refresh their grammar, I highly recommend starting with the tables and exercises book.
It provides a quick overview and drill exercises that help to train your language skills in a quick and efficient way.
For those who have more time and want to build their knowledge in a more systematic way, I advise starting with Sistema Kalinka’s textbooks. They are both fun and easy to work with.
Overall, I am extremely pleased with the books I purchased and grateful for the excellent services provided.
Therefore, I highly recommend Sistema Kalinka to anyone looking to improve their Russian language skills.
