Russendisko Chapter-by-Chapter Guide

Russendisko Chapter-by-Chapter Guide

This is a guide I made for my Year 13 German class (AQA) to help them while reading 'Russendisko' by Wladimir Kaminer in German. I have provided the English translation of key words from each chapter, as well as a summary of each chapter in English. Students can use the guide while reading the book in German to help them understand what is happening in the text. This could, of course, also be used with Year 12 pupils if they are studying 'Russendisko' for the new AQA A level.
