Description

This course has 8 units. unit 0 is dedicated to the alphabet, sounds and rules of reading. Every unit consists of 2 lessons except unit 4 and 8. This course contains 12 common situations which you may come across if you travel to Russia. During these lessons you will learn some frequently used words and phrases that will help you understand the person who you are speaking with better in all these situations. This course will also introduce you to the Russian letters and sounds which make the process of studying this language faster, easier and more effective.

Important !

At the beginning of every lesson from Unit 1 there is a dialogue in Russian. It shows you what you will learn during this lesson. When you finish this lesson you may listen to this dialogue and check yourself. Every word and construction must be familiar to you at the end of this lesson. If you cannot understand the dialogue of the lesson, you need to go back to a particular slide or watch this lesson once again.

Tip. When you listen to this dialogue again, cover the dialogue and try to understand it without using the script. If you have any problems with understanding, use ‘’Appendix with the slides’’ (that you can find near Unit 0 lesson 1). All the dialogues in ''Appendix with the slides'' go with the transcription.

I hope you will find this course useful and interesting. I would appreciate any feedback.
