This app helps you to learn foreign languages using Ilya Frank’s Method of Teaching Reading®, simply by reading interesting books. You can get acquainted with the Method and read several tales in Russian and Spanish, and then check out our "Shop" section for more!

All books are adapted (without simplification of the original text) by Ilya Frank’s Method® and supplemented with professional audio tracks. The uniqueness of the method lies in the fact that memorizing foreign words and expressions takes place naturally due to their frequency of occurrence, without special memorizing or the necessity to use a dictionary.

The app contributes to the effective mastering of foreign language and can be used as a supplement to any language learning program. It is designed for students, for people mastering foreign languages on their own, and also for all those interested in foreign languages and cultures.

Note: users who bought our paid "Tales" apps can download the same tales for free in our new app, as long as the old app remains installed on the same device!

Можно попробовать

Если бы не акцент "русской школьной учительницы" в англ. книгах, то было бы отлично. Поэтому, к сожалению, не пользуюсь "услугами" диктора, предпочитаю ориентироваться на произношение более приближённое к native speakers. А в целом идея и реализация хорошая.

The languages available are horribly limited. If you do not either speak Russian or wish to learn it, you're probably out of luck. The idea seems sound, there's just not enough material available. I was hoping to learn Swedish this way. :(
