My name is Tatiana. I am the author of the project «EnglishStory» and also the grammar textbook «English Grammar: Easy to Learn» (Английская грамматика: просто о сложном) and the course «Learn to Read in English on your Own» (Как научиться читать по-английски самостоятельно).
The idea to create the course devoted to the English and American Classics came up to me long ago when I was an English teacher in a secondary school.
When I entered my classroom for the first time I was impressed by the tall bookcases standing at the end of the room. They were full of books. Those were books by Charles Dickens, Jack London, Arthur Conan Doyle and other English and American writers. It was a treasure. Unfortunately, those books were impossible to read as their pages were yellow and dusty. So, I took the treasure home.
I took the stories from these books, printed them on good paper and we read them with my students at the lessons. Then I created my first course called «The World Classics in English». When I left school, I took up IT courses and learnt how to create websites. Now I have two websites englishstory.ru and englishinn.ru.
I hope good reading gives you the same pleasure as it always gives me. And I wish you read all the stories on englishstory)) Good luck!
The author of the project, Tatiana
