The best

I tried a lot of courses. This method, hear and repeat is he more effective. Much more in my opinion, than other that stress in the necessity of reading and writing. This could be done later in an easier way, once you know how to say it.

Learning Russian

A good program, following the same thread as the first 3 books. My wife who is a native Russian speaker says my pronunciation is good and vocabulary is picking up well. As with my previous comments, the only improvement would be to give a bit more time to repeat as I'm often still trying to remember a word and get annoyed when the answer is given too soon.

I good way to learn a new language

I bought these because they were on sale on Audible one day and I’d always wanted to learn Russian. I listened to these on the train and though at times I napped while listening I still learned. I’ve listened to this book several times and I can understand individuals speaking Russian the news. Give it a go and see what results you get.
