A PDF file containing the combined Reading Booklets to be used with the audio lessons is included.

 

About the Russian Language

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.

    Comments about Russian I-III:

    Use to and from work. Works great. The only thing I have a problem with is the native speakers have a tendency to lower their volume at times and it becomes a little difficult to catch the full pronunciation.

    Comments about Russian Phases 1-3:

    I'm giving it 4 stars only because it doesn't help with the writing (has to be suplemented in that area) and because they only have levels I-III. Other than that, it would have been 5 stars.

    The main thing with Pimsleur is that it helps you with the accent and the conversational aspect. For a language like Russian, the pace is just fine. The main thing about this program is the quality of the audio: Russian has sounds that for English speakers are almost inaudible. The audio is crisp and clear. And the app makes it is very portable. Worth the money.

    I use this product as I drive to and from work every day. It's been perfect for me and my learning has progressed very quickly. Everything I thought I would need and expected regarding learning a new language Pimsleur gives me, so I've had no problems. The way Pimsleur incorporates memory retainment principles is excellent, too, decreasing the amount of time I have to spend trying to remember vocabulary.

    Comments about Russian I-III:

    I was given the honor of being the Chief Medical Officer for Team USA in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. When I got the call on Feb 28, 2013, I ordered 2 Russian Learning programs at once. Pimsleur was the clear winner for me enabling me to learn the language while I was in my car or listening in my helmet while skiing. I spent about an hour per day for 7 months and when I went on a site visit to Moscow and Sochi, I was amazed at how fluent I had become.
    The ability to speak the native language of the Olympic Organizing committee was invaluable. I was able to help my team to success in so many ways, I cannot name them all here.
    I am so convinced that this program works, I am now preparing for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil!
