Finally Learning to Speak A Foreign Language<br /><br />

I've bought every CD, program and book possible and still couldn't have a conversation. This downloads on my phone. tablet and computer and just plays. I picked the language up naturally. Worth every cent and wasn't expensive.

great language learning tool

Each lesson is a different topic. Some build on previous lessons and some stand alone. The English guy says what he wants to say and the Russian gal says it in Russian. Then they break it down into easy to learn chunks, point out key words and phrases, sometimes cover some grammar, work on pronunciation, etc. I studied Russian for three years in high school and I was still learning new vocabulary and word usage. I would definitely recommend. Only complaint is that the entire first volume is one very long chapter. The second volume is broken up by lesson, which is much easier to navigate.

Best way to learn!

It is commonly known that music/songs are much easier to recall than simply spoken prose. Please, please, please make more of these lessons/songs in Russian. It's a brilliant idea! I'd buy every one you make. Спасибо!

Fun way to practice

I really have enjoyed this approach to practicing my Russian. I'll continue listening to this and will update my review in a couple of months to see how well it worked as far as retaining the phrases.

Not what i expected

I couldn't focus on what I was trying to learn. I felt like it kept popping to one scenario to another without having the chance to learn. not what I was looking for.

Worth it for beginner.

Pros: catchy way to learn words Cons: You don't learn a lot of words. I would be interested in a continued series. I wish the first chapter was broken up into smaller sections.

very hard to follow

this could be very good however I gave up after 15 minutes as the nonsensical music made it very hard to hear what was being said very similar to trying to have a conversation in a disco

Really easy on the ear

I've been looking to expand upon my Russian language learning and found many to be too robotic, this one was a lot of fun and broke down the words and sentences as they conversed. Great addition to anyone wanting to improve their Russian.

Helpful conversations at a good pace

The conversations and repetition are helpful. I don't know if the music helps or not but I have learned more Russian using this audio book.

noisey

too much background noise with distractions being too noisey you cannot hear the words and it just doesn't sink in try a soft balalika or a female voice.
