The online units have an integrated translation tool at the bottom of the  pages with texts and dialogues. It is handy if you want to translate a sentence from a text or dialogue without using a dictionary (don't paste big chunks of text though - the translation tool can "digest" only a phrase or sentence at a time). Practise by copying and pasting into the translation tool below the following Russian sentence and then clicking the button "To" to translate it into English:

Русские, украинцы, белорусы - восточные славяне.
