    excersize books

    ok since i finished all the books ive good my word learning and focus have been slipping, i still translate nspaper articles and such but i find after a while i end up with jumbo word lists which in turn is slightly daunting. so could anybody recommend a good work book? since i have no Russians to speak with i would like to keep sharp! cheers!

    You don't ever get the chance to speak Russian with anyone?

    That is too bad, i don't know how you manage to motivate yourself, i mean without hearing words, in all there forms, how do you know you are speaking them correctly?

    I have a Russian tutor, without her i would be lost very quickly. Tapes are good for general stuff, but without one-on-one it gets very boring, very fast.

    Is there no-one in your area? You're in Bristol right? There must be some Russians there, or what about voice-chat on the net? Private course??

    well usially the motivation isnt a problem its just now that i have no books its a lot harder. as for reading i just look at the stress, apply instinct and hope for the best also i have to listen to a lot of radio. i may look into voice chat but im going to spain for a month in a week or so thus ill wait, who knows, maybe ill meet a russian over there!

    Well i hope you can find someone to help you soon. I know what you must feel like, i went through it over a year ago, i started Russian then, but give up after 4 months because i felt i was getting no-where. No help you see.

    When i got the chance this January to start again, i grabbed it. I am so glad i did, my course is expensive,

    I speak to a Spaniard on icq who is near getting his degree in Russian. Perhaps you can ask him for help.
