    How old is the student? You might also just ask Mr Amazon: Amazon.com: russian textbook: Books

    If you are a beginner, you should start with a live person, a tutor, otherwise you will run into problems. If you want to be able to speak Russian, that is. Начало, Голоса, и В пути are three series used in colleges.

    Mostly pronunciation. Palatalization. How to pronounce the letters И and Ы and O. Stress positions (in many words stress falls on different syllables depending on grammatical case for nouns and person in verbs). Sentence intonation patterns. But basically, you don't know what you don't know, but a tutor will know.

    I remember the first time I saw a Polish newspaper (I'm from Chicago, the second-largest city of Polish speakers!) I wondered how to pronounce the word w. That was before I learned Russian.
