Publisher's Summary

Have you always wanted to learn how to speak Russian, but simply didn't have the time? 

Well if so, then, look no further. You can hold in your hands one of the most advanced and revolutionary methods that was ever designed for quickly becoming conversational in a language. In creating this time-saving program, master linguist Yatir Nitzany spent years examining the 27 most common languages in the world, and distilling from them the 350 words that are most likely to be used in real conversations. These 350 words were chosen in such a way that they were structurally interrelated and, when combined, form sentences. Through various other discoveries about how real conversations work - discoveries that are detailed further in this book - Nitzany created the necessary tools for linking these words together in a specific way, so that you may become rapidly and almost effortlessly conversant, now. 

If you want to learn complicated grammar rules, or the non-Romanized alphabet of a foreign language, then this audiobook is not for you. However, if you need to actually hold a conversation while on a trip to Russia, to impress that certain someone, or to be able to speak with your grandfather or grandmother as soon as possible, then the Nitzany Method is what you have been looking for. This method is designed for fluency in a foreign language, while communicating in the present tense. Nitzany believes that what's most important is actually being able to understand, and be understood by another human being, right away. Therefore, unlike other courses, all words in this program are taught in English transliteration, without having to learn the complex Cyrillic alphabet. More formalized training in grammar rules, etc., can come later. This isn't a pronunciation audiobook. Thus, this audiobook is recommended for those with prior knowledge in pronunciation of the Russian language. However, for those who aren't previously familiar, this audiobook does provide some basic tools to teach pronunciation. 

You will notice in this program, that occasionally the endings of certain Russian words change slightly depending on different cases. However, since this is not a grammar audiobook, this program will not teach you these skills, nor will it teach you the accusative, genitive, dative, instrumental, or prepositional cases. The only thing this audiobook offers are the necessary tools to become conversational in a foreign language in record time. As previously stated though, with regards to grammar and pronunciation, you are on your own! 

This is one of the several, in a series of instructional language guides, the Nitzany Method's revolutionary approach is the only one in the world that uses its unique language technology to actually enable you to speak and understand native speakers in the shortest amount of time possible. No more depending on volumes of books of fundamental, beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, all with hundreds of pages in order to learn a language. With Conversational Russian Quick and Easy, all you need to do is listen. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Good for traveling plus much more

My name is Chaz. Here in New Jersey there is a huge Russian community. This will help me quite a bit if I ever need to interact with them. Plus I will use this if I ever travel to Russia.

Excellent Resource for Russian Language Learning

Would you listen to Conversational Russian Quick and Easy again? Why?

This is an excellent and quick method to help you acquire beginning skills speaking the Russian language. The book is narrated by a native speaker which is important for both listening to and learning how to say the vocabulary words correctly. The pace is quick and the phrases are simple enough to master after listening and repeating them several times. This short book offers a good introduction to the language while providing the learner simple phrases to practice, learn, and use. This would be a great companion book to reference when visiting Russia!

Wonderful purchase

Any additional comments?

I have travel plans to Russia for a short visit this Summer and I wanted to learn some Russian prior to going. This was my first book from the Nitzany method and I am very excited. What I found wonderful is a combination of words and sentences, if you memorize the 350 words, you will have the best basis for becoming fluent in a language. Unfortunately the actual book doesn't focus too much on pronunciation HOWEVER this audio book DOES since the narrator is a native, thats why i purchased it. Either way i find the book and this audio version amazing so far.

Very useful

My favorite Russian audio learning language tool. I live in a Russian speaking household and all these words are commonly used. This is to master the very basic essentials. The bread and butter. I listen to this as often as I can and am already learning a lot. Also this audible is great because it is not cheesy and touristy! Just basic essentials to communicate (: thank you!

By far the best source

I have studied Russian for years. This is the best source I found. I like this source very much and highly recommend it. Very effective method of learning Russian and also any other foreign language. Besides Russian i also purchased the Bulgarian and Ukrainian paperbacks from this author in the past. Very happy with all the purchases from Yatir Nitzany. This is also my first audio program. I am new to audible.

Thick Russian Accent

Very hard to listen to a Russian accent so thick it sounds like a cartoon villain stereotype.
