A highly useful, practical and painless introduction for the iPod generation
I used this course, together with the Berlitz Russian Travel Pack, Russian Linguaphone and the Living Language Basic Russian Course, to launch my study of Russian just over two years ago.
The Learn In Your Car Courses are ideal for the iPod generation. You hear the English in one ear, followed by the Russian in the other (repeated twice with generous gaps for you to repeat aloud).
The course is divided into a number of manageable lessons. Each lesson has a theme [whether 'Transport', or 'Important Concepts', or 'Speaking about the Past']. The course progresses from very basic words ['I', 'you'] delivered one at a time, gradually adding words until you are able to speak short phrases. The English will often come in two forms: the expression we use in English ['I have a house'], followed by the transliteration of the Russian ['to me a house'], so that you gradually obtain a grasp of the Russian sentence structure/grammar.
There is no commentary or explanation; you just put your headphones on and run with it.
If, like me, you want a practical and painless way of acquiring another language, this could well be for you; you will acquire a good aural sense of spoken Russian - and if you speak the words out loud as you hear them, with diligence and care you can acquire a pretty convincing accent.
You are acquiring the language in a quasi-natural manner. This method, of course, may not suit everyone.
I used to listen to the course whilst travelling to and from work; this is all 'free time', so to speak... and by just letting the soundtrack circle round me as I travelled, I acquired the language without a great deal of effort, frankly!
After two years using this [and the other courses mentioned above], I have GCSE Russian and AS Russian Grade As!
But take note! Russian is very difficult... and you will need to study a grammar book further down the track.
