Description

Includes 30 lessons and reading instruction (16 hours) as MP3 download, plus PDF user's guide and reading booklet

The Pimsleur® Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You’ll be speaking and understanding in no time flat! English for Russian Speakers Phase 1, Lessons 1-30 includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one hour of reading instruction in thirty, 30-minute lessons. In the first 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information or preferences, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.

In the next 10 lessons, you’ll build on what you’ve learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You’ll understand more of what you hear, and be able to really participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.

In the final 10 lessons of Phase 1, you’ll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more and more directions are given in the target language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. You can talk about your immediate family, go on a car trip, and ask for and understand directions. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening and traveling with children. You’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.

Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30 to provide you with an introduction to reading English. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

      Comments about English for Russian, Comprehensive:

      Tomorrow I leave to live in Moldova with my girlfriend. I have studied the Russian tracks, she has studied the English tracks. I have studied 6 languages.
      THIS IS THE ONLY PROGRAM THAT WORKS AND I HAVE TRIED MANY. IT IS BRILLIANT. SIMPLY BRILLIANT. And Katerina loves hers as well. Typical Russian. Studies like crazy all the time.

        Comments about ESL Russian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

        I purchased this course for a young orphan girl in Odessa. I sent it to her as a gift. She indicated it is very helpful to her in learning Ehglish.

        On another note, I am still working through Russian I - III which are excellent. The Pimsleur method is the most effective learning system I have ever used. I recommend it to everyone I know who wants to learn a new language.
