New Year’s topic materials


For the New Year we have gathered a small selection of materials regarding its traditions. For the most of them you can download text and audio files for free. Level B1.

«К нам идёт Новый 2022 год!» (“2022 is just around the corner!"): you will learn about New Year’s traditions and holidays in Russia.

«Дед Мороз и Снегурочка» (“Ded Moroz and Snegurochka”) will tell about the Russian New Year’s folklore and its main characters, Ded Moroz and Snegurochka. You can also download the pdf worksheet.

«Скоро будет Новый год!» (“New Year is coming!"): you’ll see how the New Year’s tree is decorated, where and how the toys for the tree are made.
