    Pimsleur course

    I am going through the New Penguin Russian course book which is really good but heavy going sometimes.
    I am considering purchasing the Pimsleur course. Some people in the forum used this course. I would like to know if any of you found it useful.

    As it is difficult to find a Russian course in the area where I live, I have to study Russian indepently.

    Any advise will be most welcome.
    Thanks!

    It rocks the house. For 80 days I have been listening to 80 30 minutes audio tapes. It is simply the best! It does not bore you and has great efficiency for learning to speak with the automatisms. Now I use instrumental fluently. It just sucks that after Russian III, there ain't anymore courses. Quality is great, but you don't learn much vocabulary.
    It is expensive though. (or just dl it)

    Many thanks for replying to my message. Yes, you are right, the Pimsleur course is not cheap but I am sure it is worth the money. Many thanks for your advise.

    check a library first, it might save you some money.
    The previous edition had some mistakes and wrong phrases, and even the new one is unnatural in places. But let not that detract you, it should be a nice course.
