Workbook Lesson 7B--Bible Teach Book

Student’s Name: ____________________________

In this exercise you will learn how to find Russian publications on jw.org. You will also learn how to print out and mark up a text so as to better understand it.

Go to jw.org and find What Does the Bible Really Teach. Use the control labeled “READ IN” to switch the language to Russian. Read the chapter title, questions, and first two paragraphs. Play the audio and try to read along with it.

Print out a copy. Enlarge the text by pasting it from the website into a word processor and changing the font size or increase the line spacing. Or if you have the print edition handy, you can make an enlarged copy on a photocopier. Take time to find a method that works for you and which you can use in the future.

Take your enlarged copy and find all the words in the text that you know and write their meanings over them. Then find the vocabulary words from the list below and write their meanings. Finally underline each noun once and each verb twice (or use highlighters of two different colors). Bring it to class next time.
