Don't Drive & Learn, but Use This to Study/Review

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

Not Effective At All :(

Someone just reads an English word and then someone else repeats the Russian translation two times.. Then the next word, etc. I am sorry but if you can learn like this just get a dictionary and read it. This audiobook offers no real technique, it's just word repetition. For me this was a waste of money and (more importantly) time. Just my 2 cents.

A good way to revise and learn Russian

What made the experience of listening to Learn in Your Car: Russian, the Complete Language Source the most enjoyable?

I have liked the basic phrases very varied and with the pdf file, it is easy to follow the lessons.

Any additional comments?

To me it is an excellent book to listen to while driving or at home

Worst language audiobook ever

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.

I think it is great

I like this a lot. It contains phrases that you learn through repetition. Admittedly, the Cyrillic lettering in the study booklet is daunting. I recommend starting with the ebook "Russian Alphabet in 33 Moves" by Olga Nather and then once you know the values of the letters to use the "Learn in Your Car" recordings.

There is a lot of information in the course. Don't expect to learn the language with this. But, you can learn about the Language. If you want a start on studying the Russian language this is a good cheap place to start.

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.
