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!
This course includes Lessons 1-8 from the Russian Level 1 program - 4 hours of audio-only effective language learning with real-life spoken practice sessions.

Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons is included in each lesson. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Russian.

The Russian Language
Russian, one of the six official languages of the United Nations, is the official language in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Krygystan, with an estimated 150 million native speakers around the world. Pimsleur's Russian uses speakers from Moscow and St. Petersburg, which accounts for slight pronunciation differences between speakers, but accurately depicts contemporary spoken Russian.

    Comments about Russian, Q&S:

    I try to listen to a 30 minute lesson each day reviewing the same lesson several times until I feel proficient. I like that the beginning of each lesson reviews prior learning and that prior learning is sprinkled throughout the lessons. This keeps me from being overwhelmed with new words and phrases and I feel like I'm making progress. I will buy the next lessons.

      Comments about Russian, Q&S:

      I love Pimsleur, but when I took advantage of a special promotional pricing on the introductory Russian, I apparently didn't read closely enough to discover selecting this automatically signed me up to receive the ENTIRE Russian course costing approximately $1000. When the first shipment arrived and I called to return it, I had to pay the return shipping myself. I wasn't happy about this.

      Comments about Russian, Q&S:

      Excellent product. Use it frequently when driving, to continue to refresh my knowledge. However, I am ready to proceed to more conversational Russian, and wish that there was a Phase 4, as there is for other languages.
      Wish there was more explanation of grammer.

      Service and delivery comments:

      More explanations of grammer would be helpful. Where is Phase 4?

        Comments about Russian, Q&S:

        I recieved a couple of language learning tools to learn basic Russian as a gift so that I could better embrace my cultural roots. One of the items was Quick & Simple Russian. I found it to be so effective that I am now enthusiastic to take it even further and become totally fluent in Russian. It even got me excited about starting to learn other languages as well. I decided to set it as a goal to become multi-lingual. I plan on using the Pimsleur programs to get me there. They are fun and effective. The Quick & Simple programs provide an excellent foundation.
