Ateljee and Ponjatno! are Russian series for lower and upper secondary schools.



Ateljee builds pupils’ language skills through speaking and doing. Pupils take an active role and communicate with others about topics relevant to them. Ateljee encourage pupils to use the language right from the start which makes learning Russian feel rewarding.

With Ateljee, the pupils have enough time to acquire the skills needed for everyday communication and for interpreting and producing different kind of texts. Ateljee is designed for teacher-led group learning. Pupils are gradually able to study more independently and the role of the teacher changes.

Ateljee 1 contains courses 1–3, Ateljee 2 contains courses 4–6 and Ateljee 3 contains courses 7–8 (digital textbook only).



Ponjatno! focuses on oral skills. In addition to speaking, reading, pronunciation, listening and writing, Ponjatno! includes grammar and Russian geography and culture. For example, in addition to studying and learning every day communication skills, with Ponjatno! we get to get acquainted with 32 Russian cities. In the book series there are lots of different text types keeping in mind the interests and the point of view of the students.

Ponjatno! 1 contains courses 1–3, Ponjatno! 2 courses 4–6 and Ponjatno! 3 courses 7–8.
