    Books

    I have 2 books, they are rather simple and for people that want to visit Russia. They helped me with seasonal workers on Cape Cod though...
    They are
    1, "RUSSIAN, in 10 minutes a day", Bilingual Books Inc.,
    http://www.bilingualbooks.com
    I bought with a friend from Belarus in Hyannis, Ma, USA

    2, " Learn RUSSIAN the Fast and Fun Way" Barron's Educational Series, Inc.
    Gift from brother living in Washington, DC, USA

    Bi-ling has a few neat things, like flash-cards and stickers that I have all over my house, Barron's is more for a business traveler. #1 has tips from my Belarusian friend, #2 has tips from my Russian friend scrawled in.

    #2 has a small Russian-English English-Russian dictionary in the back, #1 has more on "how to tip" and a Russian-English dictionary.

    2, " Learn RUSSIAN the Fast and Fun Way" has a set of 4 audio tapes that should be used with the book. It was used in my Conversational Russian classes. It is OK but I would use it along with New Penguin Russian Course if I was you.

    Send them on over then ! I'll gladly pay all the shipping etc., cost would be less than the late fees I pay to the library for the set of audio tapes they have. Speaking of which, if they're free and all, could I make a copy and donate the masters to afformentioned library? All of Cape Cod could access them via the CLAMS network. I'm sure a few inn-keepers and restaraunt owners would like to pick up a few words/phrases.
