    Princeton Russian Language Material Online

    Hi, as I assume you all know, the http://www.princeton.edu/russian/SLA101/ link is inactive. Does anybody have a backup of all the material? If so please let me know, and maybe you can send it to me. Thanks!

    The complete Princeton Russian course is available for free downloading at the following site:

    http://www.freelanguagecourses.com/

    The author, Dr. David Freedel, has graciously made it available, although he is interested in hearing from those who use it, so please do send him a brief e-mail to let him know how much his work, and his generosity, is appreciated by those learning Russian.

    Princeton Russian Course

    I was able to download it just fine. Actually my first attempt was unsuccessful. It froze about a third of the way through. My second attempt was successful however. If you're having trouble, try downloading the torrent here: http://www.mininova.org/tor/904728

    Does anyone know if this Princeton course covers advanced Russian too?

    Well it depends on what you mean by "advanced". According to the schedules, it covers 3 semesters, quite intensively (1 lesson / day), which makes a total of about 200 lessons (.pdf doc).

    Is there a Russian or an advanced student to tell us how advanced Princeton courses really get ?

    Re: Princeton Russian Language Material Online

    Did anyone ever come up with a list of answers to the exercises in the Princeton course?

    It would be helpful to know if i'm getting it right.

    You could probably ask the owner if he has that. He answered very nicely when I asked him about the schedule.
    Would you like also to ask him if the full scripts of the stories (Sarah, Boris) are available ?

    Hi,
    I contacted the owner, and here is his answer :
    "Я постараюсь найти эти тексты, но, честно говоря, думаю, что это будет не скоро. Дело в том, что я ищу работу (как все). Надо признаться, что у меня не очень хорошо идут дела, но я думаю (я уверен), что многие страдают гораздо больше, чем я."
    Excuse my english, I’m French.

    Did you ever find out about the answers? I have moved passed the point where I know everything and want to know if i'm getting it right without bothering my friends every two seconds. Where can I find his email address to ask for answers?

    Текст без ответов совсем бесполезный!
