IMPROVE YOUR RUSSIAN LISTENING SKILLS AND UNDERSTAND NATIVE SPEAKERS BETTER!
Listening is THE KEY to better Russian speaking. The more common Russian sentence patterns you listen to, the faster you improve your Russian.
The goal of this book is to teach you Russian sentences (not just individual Russian words!) that you can use in many different situations. The sentences selected for this book are often used in daily conversations.
You will practice listening to and pronouncing the sentences with the accompanying MP3s. Recordings are available at both slow AND normal speeds, making this book perfect for beginners. You can listen to the slow recordings to help boost your confidence and to the fast recordings for an extra challenge.

THIS MULTIPURPOSE BOOK WILL HELP YOU…

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 speaking.
CAN YOU SAY YOU´VE LEARNED A LANGUAGE
AFTER KNOWING 500 SENTENCES IN IT?
Certainly not, but it gives you a good picture of what the language looks like. It also allows you to express the most basic demands and understand them, speak about yourself, buy things, and above all, use the vocabulary and structure from these 500 sentences to create hundreds of new sentences.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
An excellent guide to everyday phrases. I speak at B2 level but a lot of these phrases are not common in course material or even in written language. I made up a method of study and soon absorbed and use the material from this book and people asked “Where did you hear that?” That was when I said one day, “понятия не имеею.” I simply listened and repeated the material 4 times a day for 15 minutes each. Then I looked at only the English and translated back to Russian for 4 periods of 15 minutes a day. A great resource.
Strongly recommend this book, it is very useful in providing regularly used phrases. It gives help to move on from the rigours of language rules to give useful sentences which will be used by Russian speakers. New words are learned and, used with any flashcard system, the book will improve anyone’s vocabulary. I recommend it’s daily use along with flashcards. For new learners the earlier beginner’s book is highly recommended.
