On February 2023, at the AATSEEL conference I am planning to organize a round table with the title “No Tears No Fears Russian Language Class for Children”, and I would like to invite you to participate.
Could you please be so kind and join me for the round table? Your participation would be greatly appreciated.
Here are some potential topics for discussion:
Reducing prejudice against Cyrillic in reading lessons
Keeping children’s attention in the electronic age
Learning Russian and mending cultural barriers
The importance of recognizing and rewarding learning progress
You are welcome to add anything you propose to this list.
Here is an abstract from the rules of round table
“Roundtables are less formal than panels. Initial roundtable presentations are generally shorter than papers (about 10 min. per person). Then the speakers engage in discussion with each other, and the audience is usually invited to engage more directly than at panels. A roundtable is more of an open conversation: speakers come with their own insights and points of view, but not necessarily with a topic to analyze or a thesis to defend.”
Please let me know if you are interested in this round table and planning to participate, and I will include you into the proposal.
Let me know if you have more questions. Thank you!

“Vassily the Cat” is a book from the series about the adventures of a black cat named Vassily. Why doesn’t Vassily have a family? Does his grandmother, Nastas’ya Yur’evna, love him? What can a cat do to overcome loneliness? The feeling of compassion for the main character will allow children to learn lots of new words to improve speaking — as well as to enjoy reading — in Russian. Vocabulary and grammar levels correspond to A2. At the end of the book, a list of questions is available to test reading comprehension.
