Audio training course designed specifically for English speakers and containing 17 theme based lessons covering the every day situations. Each lesson consists of English tutorials, vocabulary, and complete live conversations. Essentials such as greetings, shopping, telling the time, asking for directions, elements of Russian business etiquette, such cultural concepts as The Russian soul, how to date someone in Russian and even a short poem by Alexander Pushkin included here.
The Russian audio course that jumps right into learning the language with expertly designed structure of the lessons and their thematic organization to benefit English Speakers. Engaging, attention grabbing, infused with cultural content to deliver immediate results for those who needs to master Russian fast. Will work with iPod, PC, lap-top, MP3, cell phone or any home stereo. No additional software or special equipment necessary.
The Easy Russian for English Speakers provides a lightweight form of tuition which aims to show Russian language from the angle familiar to English speakers. It does not bombard students with heavy grammar. Certain elements of grammar are introduced as and when it is necessary. The format of each lesson exposes listener to correct pronunciation at correct 'live' speed of the language. New vocabulary and phrases are repeated several times though, so that the listener is able to capture and analyse this material. New vocabulary is then put into practice through dialogues and short conversations. Necessary minimal grammar and language concepts are explained in English. Foreign language learning need not be overly complicated.
This audio course goes a little further than just the language and is offering an insight into Russian culture and literature. Such concept as "the Russian soul" is almost always missing in all traditional courses yet this is something that has significant influence both culturally and linguistically in Russian language. Many other courses spend little or no time showing features of Russian language sharing common roots with all other European languages, or showing important differences specific to those who speak English. I find that such elements significantly improve both quality and speed of learning and make overall learning experience more interesting. Anyone in possession of re-usable existing language features will make better progress in another language.
