    Comments about Russian II, Comprehensive:

    I utilized the program as instructed, completing one session per day daily. I have completed the first 30 day course of Russian I and have started my second 30 day course of Russian II. I have already reached a level where I can start to build simple sentences that can effectively start to communicate with a Russian speaker. I believe anyone that will put forth the effort to learn a language using this method will learn the the language but more importantly, have the skill level to be able to effective converse with a native speaker.

        Comments about Russian Phase 2, Units 1-30:

        I have been through the first level and the first 20 lessons of the second. Generally I sit and go through the lesson at night, giving full concentration. Then I usually listen to it again the next day while driving to working. That is usually enough to be ready for the next lesson that night. If the material is particularly difficult or has many new words, I might repeat it for a second day.
        I have found that my recall of words or phrases to be excellent days or many lessons later. The pronunciation training is very good. I highly recommend this product and it is definitely worth the money

        Service and delivery comments:

        More repetition of earlier material in later lessons.

          Comments about Russian Phase 2, Units 1-30:

          I am very satisfied with the Pimsleur learning system. I have noticed an increase in the speed of the conversations in phase 2. It also pushes me everyday to do a new lesson even though sometimes the one I did was not very good. It seems like the next lesson builds upon that. Am also thankful for it's ease of use. Thanks again!

            Comments about Russian Phase 2, Units 1-30:

            The best way to learn a language. I've tried the others (yes, including the one seen most on the TV). Pimsleur is by FAR the most effective way I have used. My girl friend, from Russia, is also more impressed with Pimsleur than any other method. It builds on itself step by step. I listen to it during my commute to and from work. Excellent way to use the time.
