I am looking for some of the methods that worked for you on expanding your vocabulary. When it comes to verbs, I have a really good book that gives me all the forms (with accent marks for correct pronounciation, luckily) and I am progressing very well.
I have studied how to form the various cases(nouns and adjectives), the pronouns, the posessive pronouns, prepositions, etc. In just a few months lots of progress has been made here and I will continue.
I dont just want to learn a bunch of words...i want to learn the words in the different cases AND the correct pronounciation. Forvo pronounciation guide will be useful for this.
Should I just work my way through the MasterRussian top 500 nouns and use forvo to help me learn the pronounciations of the words/cases?
I am hoping, after i get a decent grasp of the language, to actually go to a language school in Russia.
