I have liked the basic phrases very varied and with the pdf file, it is easy to follow the lessons.
To me it is an excellent book to listen to while driving or at home
yes. This audiobook is for people who want to learn Russian as it would be in a basic course. Audible provides the accompanying text as a PDF download, so it's not totally audio.
Don't waste your time and money in this book. It's just a bunch of words repetition without context. No technique at all for really learning a language. I should have stayed with Pimsleur, more expensive but really useful.
"Disorganised and misleading "
Firstly the title is misleading. It's organised in such a way that it's not possible to learn in your car without the pdf file. So unless you're parked up, it's not really an effective way to learn. It could be more effective if there were some English narrative, like in the pdf, but instead it's a random collection of words and phrases. For example, chapter 24 reads "my brother", "my sister" and then we'd expect more family members perhaps. Instead we get "my radio" then "my suitcase"!! The whole book follows this incoherent pattern which makes it frustrating.
Overall, there is quite a lot of content for the price, but terribly structured.
