Not worth it

It’s really just a collection of swear words. There’s no real content there. People use idioms and slang for lots of different things, but this just focused on things you’d never actually use.

Kind of Funny

This is some pretty raw slang. A few of the phrases had me laughing my ass off. Seems very practical with some of the terms. Wasn’t sure the phrases were shared in any methodical order, just seemed random though. But great phrases and a few insults. Will come in handy. LOL

Good intro/review of Russian slang

More for those with intermediate to advanced Russian language skills. Provides a good introduction to common Russian slang or review if you already have some knowledge of such words. The audiobook narration is good. Having lived in Russia for nearly 10 years, I can say that the majority of slang words mentioned are widely used, and having a grasp of them is essential to understanding how Russians speak to each other, which is different from how they speak to foreigners.

Author should provide a pdf attachment to this audiobook with the Russian spelling of all the slang words mentioned.

This is fantastic if you’re not easily offended.

This was the best $3 I ever spent. Back in college I took some Russian classes because I wanted to be able to understand what my Russian speaking boyfriend and his friend were saying about me ‘behind my back’, although it was right in front of me. I learned as much as two semesters could teach, and I forgot most of it since. I also learned lots of curse words from my friends, and those are the words I remember most (go figure). Listening to this book was like reliving my youth.

It is a book of slang, and slang usually includes off-color language. There’s no doubt in my mind that if you went to Russia and sparked up a conversation with locals, there’s a good chance you’d hear them use a lot of these phrases. Even if you don’t want to use these words yourself, it will still be helpful to know them so you can understand what they are saying, if you are talking to someone who has gutter mouth.

It’s not all swear words, though, and if you decide to fast forward through them you’ll still learn plenty of clean, more casual phrases that should be useful. My only wish is that it came with a text so I could make sure I’m saying things correctly since the narrator goes pretty fast.

Anyhoo, as a foul mouthed Jersey girl who is obsessed with all things Russian, I really enjoy this book. One of these days I’m going to finally get over there and impress them with my Russian language skills.

Good Info

This is good information and helps if you plan to interact on a daily basis in everyday conversation with native Russian speakers as well if you watch a lot of Russian movies and TV serials. I hear this a lot but until now have a better grasp of what is being said. My wife and in-laws/friends all speak Russian so it helps to feel part of the conversation.
