Join Russian teacher Ann as she teaches you the basics of Russian. In this podcast you'll be learning just enough Russian to get by on a holiday or business trip to Russia - and to impress Russian speakers everywhere! Each lesson includes just over one minute of language-learning content, so there's no excuse not to learn! Remember - even a few phrases of a language can help you make friends and enjoy travel more.

Добрый день! Вы говорите по-русски с акцентом, но обучаете хорошо :) Hello! Good course, but host has a strong accent in Russian. Pay attention to it. Grammar and phrases are correct.

Quick and easy!

What is nice about these quick podcasts is that it takes two or three phrases/words and makes that the day's lesson. For those who have tried to learn a language before, it is easy to jump in "over your head", trying to learn too much too soon. Ann, the woman teaching you, tells you the word or phrase and then does it again two or three times, slower each time. I have a Russian friend at work, and have practiced what I have learned on him, and he agrees that this is a terrific presentation. Something interesting to note is that your teacher, Ann, doesn't sound to be Russian, but rather Irish or Scottish. Despite what I would have thought, this doesn't stand in the way of learning. In fact, as opposed to having a native Russian teaching me, I don't have to understand through the dialect (a problem I've had with other courses in the past). The only way I could imagine these podcasts being better were to be if they were quicker. The lessons are one minute, but each has a bit of an introduction and then a sales pitch at the end. I don't so much mind the sales pitch, as if I weren't interested (which I was), I could just fast-forward, but it's tough to do this with the intro as you don't want to accidently skip into the lesson. All in all, however, you won't be disappointed. I know I haven't. :)

Seems to be a nice course...

A little slow but probably good as a way to get the basics while travelling.
