SO ANNOYING

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

different teachers

Has Learn Russian: Ultimate Getting Started with Russian Box Set, Lessons 1-55 turned you off from other books in this genre?

pretty much yes

How could the performance have been better?

the teachers are so annoying couldn't even get past the first couple minutes

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

there was a pdf attached

Great for serious learners.

If you want to learn a few phrases, this is the wrong course. If you want to be fluent in 2 months, you're kidding yourself. If you have a realistic perspective of language learning, have learned the Cyrillic alphabet (not necessary but you'll save yourself a lot of trouble if you do) then the next step is this course.



The course has set a fantastic groundwork for you to build your language learning up on. This course isn't audio only and the accompanying PDF files are massive so I'd recommend you use this course with a tablet or be willing to print 600-odd pages.



Narrators are very casual to try and relax things, and the PDF document goes into the language and notes some points on grammar. It also aids in immersion.



I strongly recommend this course along with setting your facebook and phone to Russian (Русский(RU)) and use Oxford's Russian Dictionary (ISBN: 978-0-19-957643-2 available on Amazon) to aid in the immersion/language learning process.
