Awesome and Useful

This is comprehensive. This is exhaustive. If you are planning to take your kids and flee to Russia to get away from woke imperialism, this is a must have. The narrator has a soothing voice.

Soo monotone!

Maybe it will get better. So far, it’s awful. I’m hoping once it’s get to more grammar explanations that it will be worth it.

Very helpful resource

There is a great perspective of activities you can do in the audiobook as well as online. The website, which you will practice often with the audiobook, has many practices that include listening and repeating which are naturally required to learning a language! I know some people complain about online activities, but I am usually sitting with my audiobook, notebook, and laptop all on my desk.

5 stars

This course gets a 5-star rating from me because it covers the Russian language from beginners' level to advanced. I like the way that the lessons are methodically thought out with each one building the learner's knowledge of the language step by step.

THIS AUDIO NEEDS A TRANSCRIPT

This is a great book but really needs a transcript pdf because some of what she is saying can’t be followed. And I could not find a pdf to buy anywhere only the hard cover which is very difficult to get!!!

A great guide.

Of course, when beginning a language as a novice, you will progress more quickly if you have a live instructor. But, whether you choose this book as a means to begin learning Russian and get a feel for the language, or as a complement to your Russian class, it is a great opportunity either way!

Essential audiobook for them who learn russian

I got this audiobook as a complement for a Russian class I am taking because I didn't feel like I was preparing enough practice exercises. This audiobook gave me everything I required and more for an amazing amount!

Grammar

Russian is my first language, though I haven't spoken in many years. I like this book but I did find a few hiccups in their grammar. This flaw is not unique though. It's common with any language book. I highly suggest it for anything learning Russian!

Nice and easy start for the beginner

This is the audiobook asked by my "Introduction to Russian" teacher. It should be noted that, along with this audiobook, I'm using to learn Russian, which, might I add, if very necessary if one is trying to learn on the go!

Good start

Good start. I believe that this is only helpful in a taught course. It is Sheffield University's book for the first year.

Too much complicated grammar in the early stages

I felt bombarded with grammar that wouldn't show up/ wasn't necessary for the beginning, making the entire process rather painful. I didn't learn much and think I will give it back to find sth that will allow me to learn more naturally.

Waste of tjme

Explained for linguists, not language students. The course is like listening to a dull teacher at school.

Nowhere near as good as Pimsleur.
