REPETITION IS THE KEY
Since the material is not cumulative, topics can be studied according to need or preference. You will note that certain structures such as “Можно…?” or “Давай…?” appear frequently throughout the book. Besides being very handy, their repetition facilitates focusing on the many complementary words and phrases. Thus, you learn to produce a large number of sentences and convey a wide range of information with minimum effort.
This is not a textbook, and it doesn’t cover Russian grammar. This book is a compilation of useful sentences for beginners about topics that are common in everyday life.

FOCUS ON LEARNING PHRASES
THAT YOU CAN USE OVER AND OVER AGAIN
When you are studying Russian, focus on learning phrases that you can use over and over. Don’t worry too much about verb tenses and extensive vocabulary lists. The most important thing about learning a new language is that you can communicate with other people.
You don’t have to be perfect. You just have to try!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
These phrase lists are absolutely as useful as useful gets. I am able to use them all the time and it allows me to cover many situations with my Russian-speaking spouse. The great thing is they are broken up into groups of common functions such as Greetings, Gratitude, hope, surprise, etc. These recordings allow multiple ways of responding to common situations. And they are short. One other benefit is that these phrases come up all the time in movies and in books. Very useful.
This book is just awesome. The audio files are available in slow and normal speed, which is a great plus for beginners. Also, the content is in modern, everyday spoken Russian. It is a very good fit for my current level of Russian. I’ve been learning Russian for a few months now and it has helped my oral skills greatly. I have bought other learning packages from Boost Your Russian, and I am very happy with those products. You can tell a lot of effort has been put into their development. I would definitely recommend this package to all Russian learners.
I think it is a fantastic book! And I liked it very much because it enriched my vocabulary in Russian and improved my listening skills. It was also great for my current level of Russian (between beginner and intermediate). I also think it is very useful because you learn the Russian language as it is spoken daily and for tourists who visit Russia for the first time (It will help them communicate with the Russian native speakers). Therefore I would highly recommend it to other Russian learners.
I really recommend it. It has a clear structure in themes (for example “greetings”, “apologies”, etc. Making it useful for every situation. It is the perfect way to combine your regular grammar skills with daily vocabulary. With a native speaker, it makes also a huge difference, you will learn this vocabulary directly with the right pronunciation (no doubt about making mistakes with stressed / non stressed vowels).
