About the © Linguistic Reanimator series



All the English and Spanish language © Linguistic Reanimator Series books can significantly reduce the training period of a foreign language course and improve the quality of learning of new words and normative grammar by a student.

Their advantage is foreign words and (sometimes) transcription in brackets next to the word in a sentence. Using this technique, a student never studied English / Spanish before, having no vocabulary, can begin translating from Russian into English / Spanish, from Spanish into English or from English into Spanish.

The technique allows you to learn new English / Spanish words and phrases easily, and quickly; improving the skills of correct translation into a foreign language.

All the © Linguistic Reanimator Series books have been written for «my difficult students», for those who needed to obtain a large amount of high-quality knowledge in a short period of time. The latter is the aim of all the textbooks of this series.

It was getting dark



It was getting dark (anochecer). Yegorych was in high spirits (estar de buen humor) — that day (ese día) at exactly 19:00 (exactamente a las 19:00) he was going to watch (ir a ver) the next (… próximo) football match (partido de fútbol) on (in) the brand-new TV set (… nuevo televisor), which (que) he had just bought (acabar de comprar) at (en) a local rural store (… tienda rural local).

To reach (para alcanzar) total pleasure (… placer total) from (de) the upcoming process (próximo proceso), he had previously (previamente) prepared (preparar) cold beer (cerveza fría) and (y) dried fish (pescado seco).

And at the appointed hour (a la hora fijada), he turned on (encender) the TV (… televisor), positively appreciating (apreciar positivamente) stereo sound effects (efectos de sonido estéreo) and the brightness of the displayed picture (calidad de la imagen mostrada), sipped (sorber) some cold foaming drink (un poco de bebida espumosa fría) out of (de) his (su) favorite mug (jarra favorita) and delved into the visualization (profundizar en la visualización).


But (pero) at the most intense moment (… momento más intenso) of (de) the game (… partido), something suddenly went wrong (de repente algo salir mal) on (en) TV (… televisión), and in a moment (en un momento) the screen (… pantalla) turned (volverse) completely black (completamente negro..).

— Oh, you’re winged crap (¡Oh!, una porquería alada), you’ve sat down (volver a sentarse) on (en) the antenna again (-), Styopka, holy shit (, ¡qué coño!)! — Yegorych cursed annoyingly (Yegorych maldecir irritado), and went (salir) into (a) the yard (… patio).

He cast an angry glance (lanzar una mirada furiosa) at (a) the roof (… tejado) of (de) his (su) house (casa) and saw (ver) there (allí) what (lo que) he had expected (esperar) to see — the winged crap Styopka (a la porquería alada, a Styopka), who (que) first (primero) sat (sentarse) quietly (en silencio) on (en) the television antenna (… antena de televisión), but (pero) on seeing (ver) its (-)! owner (dueño de esa), he began (comenzar a) to dance (bailar) on (sobre) it (ella), and, in addition (además), to draw a long and belligerent croak (emitir graznidos largos y beligerantes).
