NEWS and SPECIAL DEALS – December 2022

*** The Spanish version of the Teacher’s Book for Soroka 1 has been published. I’m pleased to invite everyone to the presentation of the book, which will take place on Dec. 4, 2022, in the capital of Mexico – Mexico City.

*** The last coupon offer on all Teacher’s Books is available. Enter the code “tbook” in the coupon field to get the book at a lower price of $8.99.

This is the last promo code on the site, because statistics show that our clients don’t use codes to receive a discount. Even when we offered a 20 percent discount on all books, for some reason people purchased books at full price. For that reason, there will be no more promo codes on the site.

NEWS and SPECIAL DEALS – October 2022

*** On Aug. 25, 2022, Marianna Avery and Polina Guelfreikh held a webinar called “Reading in Russian” (“Как читать с билингвами”), using the book “Vassily the Cat” (original title: “Бабушка кота Василия”) as reading material.  All 106 attendees received the link to the webinar recording. The video of the webinar will be coming out on the Soroka YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe to SorokaDigital , so as not to miss it.

*** The Soroka 2 course is available for purchase at sorokam.com  as units. I’d like to remind you that each file is the “horizontal cross-section” of the course, as it contains pages from the Student’s Book, Activity Book and Teacher’s Book. This is a convenient way to purchase the course, one unit at a time.

*** In the Sorokam e-bookstore all items are divided into groups now. I hope this will help our customers to find the right product faster. Here are our categories:

Books
This section includes only the books in the Soroka and Sarafan courses; the comic book; etc.

Additional Material
Tests, flashcards for reading, and other necessities for use in the Soroka course.

Consultations and Webinars
Registration for individual consultations and upcoming webinars; also, archived webinars for purchase.

Books by Units
This is the “horizontal cross-section” of the course — i.e., one file contains one unit from all three books. For instance, in the folder Unit 1 of the “Soroka 1: Russian for Kids” course, you will find pages from the Student’s Book, Activity Book and Teacher’s Book in English and Russian languages – all pages from Unit 1, Soroka 1.

*** The sorokam.com website has been migrated to the new host server; I hope that the operation speed of the site has significantly increased now.

*** I also remind our customers from Russia that the procedure of purchase is different for them. Here are three steps you should take in order to receive e-books:

1. Create a personal account on the website;

2. Send a list of items you want to purchase to opulentus@mail.ru;
