Best russian course ever!

English not being my native language it may sound strange that I choose an English language course to teach me another foreign language, but as I use English as much as, or even more than Norwegian, I've long since started thinking and dreaming in English, basically becoming bilingual. Having had two other Russian courses I do have some experience with the language, but haven't had any luck in really absorbing the language as a structure for my thoughts. This course is different, however. Having read, or listened, through this introductory course twice, I've already started to think in Russian a bit. I am therefor looking forward to entering the next level in learning to speak Russian.
The method used in this course is far superior to other language teaching methods in existents for someone with an ear for language to be unable to learn the language by heart, and should make even the slowest learner able to learn a foreign language.

If you need, or would just like to learn another language, choose a Michel Thomas Method course!

Great crush course

I got it for my boyfriend who has just started learning Russian. After listening for this course for just one time he surprised me by sending a text message in Russian. And it was not trivial as well. He said that he found this course very useful and that it helps to use limited vocabulary in very efficient way. He regrets that there are no courses beyond beginners.
I chose this course because I used M. Thomas course in Spanish and also found it extremely helpful.

Russian 1 Michel Tomas

It was very surprising how easy it was to follow this introduction to Russian. Words and phrases are very clear.
