Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Each lesson contains practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension and on learning to speak Russian.

No reading material

Would you try another book from Pimsleur and/or Pimsleur?

Yes it is useful if your hearing is good.

Would you ever listen to anything by Pimsleur again?

Maybe

What didn’t you like about Pimsleur’s performance?

My hearing is not good and my understanding was that there would be a written document related to the spoken work. This could have been useful to see those pronunciations that are hard to pick up from just listening. Even if written in Russian because learning the alphabet is easy.

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.
