Description

Includes 30 lessons and reading instruction on 16 CDs, plus a reading booklet

Russian is the official language in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Krygystan. Pimsleur's Russian uses speakers from Moscow and St. Petersburg, which accounts for slight pronunciation differences between speakers, but accurately depicts contemporary spoken Russian.

Comprehensive Russian II includes 30 additional lessons (16 hrs.), plus Readings, which build upon the language skills acquired in Level I. Increased spoken and reading language ability. Level II will double your vocabulary and grammatical structures while increasing your spoken proficiency exponentially. Upon completion of a Level II, you will be able to:

  • engage in fuller conversations involving yourself, your family, daily activities, interests and personal preferences,
  • combine known elements into increasingly longer sentences and strings of sentences,
  • create with language and function in informal situations,
  • deal with concrete topics in the past, present, and future,
  • meet social demands and limited job requirements,
  • begin reading for meaning.

Note: In order for the Pimsleur Method to work correctly, you must first complete the Level I language program before proceeding to the Level II language program.

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.

      I BOUGHT RUSSIAN II ANTICIPATING THAT I WILL SOON FINISH RUSSIAN 1. IT USUALLY TAKES ME FIVE OR SIX PLAYINGS TO BE READY TO MOVE TO THE NEXT LESSON. MY SON MARRIED A RUSSIAN: I HAVE ENJOYED SPEAKING A LITTLE WITH HER, HER CAREGIVER AND HER PARENTS

      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!
