Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
For most students without a foreign-language background, Russian is difficult to learn. To their credit, the producers have not tried to simplify their subject but to present it in a coherent and systematic manner, and in that they succeed very well. The first four tapes are to be used with the text and are closely related to the 40 lessons; the second four tapes are for "on the go" practice. Chapters contain a dialog, pronunciation section, a grammar and usage section, and a vocabulary, which includes a passage on Russian culture and exercises. Speakers' voices are clear and well differentiated, often alternating between female and male. The dialogs make effective use of humor and vocal exaggeration when appropriate. Every dialog section is spoken first at conversational speed, then repeated more slowly. Some will find the grammar sections more rigorous than necessary at the beginning; for instance, within the first nine lessons, four of the six Russian cases are presented, and verbs of motion, about which entire grammars have been written, are introduced. But explanations are always succinct and lucid. Highly recommended for learners working with an instructor or those who want to brush up; useful though a challenge for those studying on their own.--Edward B. Cone, New York Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    A bridge to the impossible.

    This book far beats all the other 'How to speak Russian' in its class. Don't be fooled by books like...Russian in 10 minutes and things like that. Russian is not an easy language and there's no point in telling you otherwise. This book with the tapes helps you get a good taste of what Russian sounds like and gives you clear understandings. Living Languages like this book were 'Originally developed by U.S. government experts for overseas-bound service personnel and diplomats...' it¿s the best in its class. Forget the computer CD's and the phrase books. Buy the real thing; don't cheat yourself and waste your money.
