What Fiction to Read
First wentAny female novels in second-hand books (don’t pay attention that your name is Ilya, at the moment this is not the main thing) – usually they have a simple, uncomplicated language. At one time, I didn’t read almost anything else. PS Do not try to read the descriptions of nature. J.K. Rowling. Much better than the Russian translation. IMHO, it is better to read what is interesting specifically to each person, you see, it will go easier, motivation is the driving force. It’s necessary to choose a book of interest (I’m talking, of course, about fiction, and not about the works of philosophers). If you have a favorite author or genre, then focus on him. My list (though not large, but tested on different students and on yourself): – Oscar Wild (short stories, The Picture of Dorian Gray) – Somerset Maugham (Magician, Theater, short stories) – Lewis Carrol (Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass) – R. Kipling (short tales, The Jungle Book, poems) – Jean Webster (Daddy-Long-Legs) – J. London (White Fang and others) – Sewell (Black Beauty) these authors and their works can be read by both adults and children (unlike Sidney Sheldon), they are classics, and therefore some orym necessary at least for those interested in the English language. Now, if you were asked what to read to a foreigner in Russian, what would you recommend? Are UltraOscar Wild and R. Kipling easy to read in English? "The Picture of Dorian Grey" can you read to both children and adults ??? Students of a language university, you mean, mine just howled from compulsory reading, which included Oscar Wilde. And anyway, Sidney Sheldon is much more interesting and useful for a modern reader than these stupid revolutions that make you learn by heart – its gold would wither into gray, a bunch of descriptions that no one needs and a pretty sultry plot, if you ask me. No classics! I strictly forbid. Only tabloid literature. But Somerset Maugham generally needs to be burned in a heap in the square. Let those who wrote it themselves read it. Whatever historical role these books play, they are not samples of a normal language. To learn languages ​​you need to read a dumb, simple language, otherwise you will not learn anything. Better beginners, who are 20 years old. And it’s better than women, because men tend to distort normal sentences beyond recognition (take Weller, for example, and read what nonsense it is, in fact). And Maugham and London can be read in Russian. And what’s bad with Leo Tolstoy. Battle scenes, for example, are written very brightly. Now it’s not so interesting for us if we have television, net and hangars, but in general it’s very good. (By the way, all this has nothing to do with learning languages.) DarkstarTo learn languages, you need to read a dumb, simple language, otherwise do not learn anything. I beg you! Reading is not what Darkstar punishes :), but what is interesting to read. Someone from Plato, and someone from tabloid novels. To learn the language, you need to want to learn, and this only happens when the student is interested. Better than beginners, who are 20 years old. Alas, I am not familiar with the work of twenty-year-old writers. On forums and in LJ – I met, but on paper from dead trees – no. Can you tell me a couple of names?
