Helpful

I found this audiobook and its accompanying PDF helpful. Some of the sentences surprised me because they weren't your typical textbook examples. They were concise and covered a wide range of topics: history, science, job-related activities, parenting duties, and some even seemed a little philosophical. They weren't choppy, boring and awkward like the way textbook or dictionary examples can sometimes be, where it always feels like some piece of the conversation is missing (in my experiences).

best series when starting a new language

I love this series by Lingo Mastery and it's one of my go-to-books for learning a new language. As an aspiring polyglot, I think it's something everyone should use to get up to speed on the most essential vocabulary.

Best format! PDF is everything! Made it fun!

I studied Russian in college several years ago and worried I'd completely lost it due to disuse. I've tried many books and videos to help me relearn including Rosetta Stone but this book helped the most! No frills, rewarding and comprehensive!

Words and Phrases

I started listening to this audio book and repeating what I heard. Repeating the words in phrases gives me comfort in knowing that should I need the repeat a phrase because they are common I could do it. The phrases are not really in an order that I can see so there might be one that tells you about what happened when you were walking then it goes to tell you about school. I would still recommend this book though since learning and travel and life can be everywhere it is always good to learn a little from everything.

Great for vocabulary build

I don't know why people are giving this book a negative review because it doesn't fit their skill level. This is an intermediate learning tool that helps fill in the cracks while giving you exposure to more complex sentences. The slow speed of the example sentences give me a chance to process the words and figure out their meaning. I probably have over a hundred hours into this book because I mostly just listen to it on the way to work but as they say in the intro, it is really important spend some time reading along. You will pick up the words much faster. If you want to learn grammar and verb conjugation then this isn't the book for you.

Makes things easier and fun

I have been learning Russian for two months now. I hesitated to get into this language because how everyone says it's so tricky, but I love a challenge, so here we are. At this point, I had some vocabulary, but I was struggling to understand anything barely when listening to natives talk, and I would struggle to form sentences. This book has helped very much with these two issues! I listened to the audiobook while reading the PDF simultaneously and learned the words and sentences quite fast. Also, the English translations are right there if you're struggling to understand the meaning of something.

Enjoyed this one very much, and recommend it to anyone learning Russian despite their level!

Phrases are useless and no conjugations in context

For 2000 common words the phrases they chose to use as examples are useless. Many of the phrases would be understood by only fluent Russian speakers.

One example: за
Что ты прячешь за спиной?
What are you hiding behind your back?

What beginner or intermediate speaker is going to use this phrase?

All the common verbs are not conjugated in the examples. This doesn't give the user a practical way to use the verb.

Example: Сказать
Я даже не знаю, что сказать.
I don’t even know what to say.

Great approach, sample sentences are too hard

I love the idea of smallest word to biggest, but the starting sentences for the most basic words are just too long and include too big of words.

For example in the 2nd chapter, leaning the word "or" the sentence that is given is
"The couple couldn’t decide whether to stay at home or to go to the country."

Think of me as a baby, give me a baby sentence "you want red OR blue ball" "you like milk OR juice" "you want to go with brother OR sister"

More than everyday phrases.

It gives a feel of how Russian is spoken in general conversation - from easy to more difficult sentences. Good for repetitive listening.
