TRILINGUAL ENGLISH-SPANISH-RUSSIAN book "The Nightingale and the Rose" is the second author's trilingual book (the first is "The Lady with the Dog" based on A. P. Chekhov's famous story). This book is based on a beautiful tale by Oscar Wilde, first published in May 1888. Oscar Wilde is a brilliant playwright of Irish origin who became most popular in the early 1890s in Victorian London for his "biting wit, flamboyant dress, and glittering conversation." The book is a wonderful entertaining and learning tool, for adults and children, where the reader will find an emotional tale about good and bad in human nature, sacrifice, love and death, simultaneously comparing three languages. The book has notes on grammar and vocabulary, some grammar tables and fun tri-lingual exercises, as well as links to author's trilingual UTube channel "zoiacalifornia." Russian, English, and Spanish are three of the six official languages of the United Nations. The trilingual text is conveniently formatted: each page has one paragraph of the text in the three languages. This formatting should present itself nicely in the electronic version too, since it will run on a Kindle (or other e-screen) page after page. Whatever is your occupation - a student, a business person, a home-staying parent, or a teacher of languages - you will benefit from this original cross-cultural trilingual presentation of an outstanding literary masterpiece. Zoia Eliseyeva has a Master's Degree in Education. She has lived in the USA for 20 years. She teaches and tutors English, Russian, and Spanish. Zoia has been in writing and publishing for 20 years.
