Slow Russian – Listening Lesson 2 – Newspaper

Slow Russian – Listening Lesson 2 – Newspaper

Hello everyone and welcome to lesson 2 of the Slow Russian language course. Today we’re going to talk about reading again. Last time we were talking about reading a book. This time we’re going to talk about reading a newspaper. You’ll find all the materials on my website, it’s Transcript, translation and vocabulary lists Now let’s get started. Today we’re talking about newspapers. Today people read newspapers much more rarely. And it’s understandable. First, it’s uncomfortable. One has to go to a kiosk to buy the newspaper. Then one has to unfold it. That’s not it. It’s huge! Very big. It’s very inconvenient to read it. Second, the text in the newspaper is tiny. Letters are small If you have poor vision, it’ll be very difficult for you to read. No wonder that people read on the Internet more and more. People of the elder generation, for example, my granny, still like newspapers. She reads “yellow journalism”. “Yellow journalism” is in the newspapers about Russian and foreign stars, celebrities. Scandals, stories, etc. Besides that, the schedule of TV programs is published there too. There are also serious newspapers, in which they print news. In Russian it’s “Rossiiskaya gazeta” (it’s its title – “Russian Newspaper”) and “Moskovskiy komsomolets”. In these newspapers they publish news, but nevertheless people tend to read news on the Internet. That was it for today. Thank you very much for watching.
