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.
