Ekaterina's books
The book "Polyglot at your own will" (in Russian) became a best-selling book on Litters in 2016, and the article with the excerpt "How not to stop learning" on the portal "Theory & Practice" became one of the most widely read. The book was also ordered by electronic libraries of Russian universities for their students interested in learning languages.

The book "Language Alter Ego" was prepared together with the head of the administration of the faculty of linguistics of Oxford University Dan Holloway. During her preparation, the article "Do you have a language alter ego?" with a fragment from the book on the portal Fluentin3months, became a hit of the blog. And half a year after Ekaterina gave her TEDx with the theme "Language Alter Ego". Curiously, the book was also given to the Prime Minister of Scotland, Nikola Stungen, at the StartUp Summit 2017 in Edinburgh.
