Great audiobook

The new and enhanced Living Language series is broken into difficulty levels and is well planned and put together. The only thing they developed that is somewhat of a mistake is that they no longer include a dictionary in the set. Other than that, a fine purchase.

Too much complicated grammar in the early stages

I felt bombarded with grammar that wouldn't show up/ wasn't necessary for the beginning, making the entire process rather painful. I didn't learn much and think I will give it back to find sth that will allow me to learn more naturally.

very useful!

I had the audio-book long ago and it was pretty helpful, so I chose to present it a 'go" to the full version... simple to handle and learn...GO FOR IT!... though, you require a small understanding of the Russian language!!!

It was as expected.

I buy it for my husband, he enjoys it. I would buy another one in a different language for myself.

This is the best

The new and recovered Living Language series is broken into stress levels and is well planned and put together. The only thing they developed that is somewhat of a mistake is that they no longer include a vocabulary in the set. Other than that, a fine investment.

Wanted to refresh my Russian. Good value.

I'm shocked because all the other Russian courses I looked at online didn't seem to match up to this one. Also, Living Language is at an especially low, low price!

Soo monotone!

Maybe it will get better. So far, it’s awful. I’m hoping once it’s get to more grammar explanations that it will be worth it.

Very helpful resource

There is a great perspective of activities you can do in the audiobook as well as online. The website, which you will practice often with the audiobook, has many practices that include listening and repeating which are naturally required to learning a language! I know some people complain about online activities, but I am usually sitting with my audiobook, notebook, and laptop all on my desk.

THIS AUDIO NEEDS A TRANSCRIPT

This is a great book but really needs a transcript pdf because some of what she is saying can’t be followed. And I could not find a pdf to buy anywhere only the hard cover which is very difficult to get!!!

A great guide.

Of course, when beginning a language as a novice, you will progress more quickly if you have a live instructor. But, whether you choose this book as a means to begin learning Russian and get a feel for the language, or as a complement to your Russian class, it is a great opportunity either way!

Essential audiobook for them who learn russian

I got this audiobook as a complement for a Russian class I am taking because I didn't feel like I was preparing enough practice exercises. This audiobook gave me everything I required and more for an amazing amount!

Grammar

Russian is my first language, though I haven't spoken in many years. I like this book but I did find a few hiccups in their grammar. This flaw is not unique though. It's common with any language book. I highly suggest it for anything learning Russian!

Nice and easy start for the beginner

This is the audiobook asked by my "Introduction to Russian" teacher. It should be noted that, along with this audiobook, I'm using to learn Russian, which, might I add, if very necessary if one is trying to learn on the go!

Good start. I believe that this is only helpful in a taught course. It is Sheffield University's book for the first year.

Excellent Resource for a Motivated Beginner

Each time the audiobook arrived I understood I had lost my money - until this one! Engaging, lots of practice, and online support. I'd suggest this to anyone involved in learning Russian.

5 stars

This course gets a 5-star rating from me because it covers the Russian language from beginners' level to advanced. I like the way that the lessons are methodically thought out with each one building the learner's knowledge of the language step by step.
