    Princeton's Textbook?

    Wasn't sure where to put this so hope this isn't the wrong place.

    I've been reading around the forum a bit and I see Princeton's University Textbook mentioned a lot. But none of the links to it work and my goggle searches haven't given me any results.

    I am then asking if anyone can provide a link as I would like to see a sample of the textbook. Or maybe someone could put it up somewhere where it could be downloaded? I can't get any information on it, so I'm not sure if it's still free. Hopefully it is. ^.^

    Thank you.

    Try searching this forum. There must be at least half a dozen links to the course or individual downloadable files from it here.

    Edit: I have found the URL, but it seems to be dead now... Anyway, it is/was http://www.princeton.edu/russian/SLA101/

    I appreciate the reply, but honestly, I have to ask: did you read my post?

    I think I clearly said I had search the forums and none of the links was working...

    That is why I asked that if someone still had it currently on their computer, if they could upload it somewhere.

    Well... thanks anyway.

    Ah, my bad.
    But are you sure you didn't edit the original post? I took a look at it soon after you had originally posted it (didn't read it thoroughly, I confess), and I got the impression that you were asking wth it is at all.

    When I saw that you bumped your post I tried to try and help w/o re-reading the original post... uh... well... .

    Well, you got me curious. Princeton must have dropped their free course, but I did find this: http://webdb.princeton.edu/dbtoolbox/qu ... ge=russian

    Don't get excited, I couldn't get the links to work, BUT you can google the individual suggestions and find sites that way. For example:http://russian.cornell.edu/grammar/index.htm

    The fonts don't all come in on this computer, and I've got to run, but it is a start.

    MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) used to have some Russian lessons posted, you might try them, too.
    Correct my Russian, please! Пожалуйста, исправьте мои ошибки!

    I guess MIT does not offer free Russian courses, but they have a wonderful list of other free selections:
    http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/web/courses/courses/index.ht

    Here's a nice set of exercises from University of Denver:

    Have fun!

    We are having a quiet Saturday, I guess, the hub is watching football......We are in for the evening, our son has a friend over....всего хорошего!

    Thank you.

    I will check those out. Though I don't usually like studying through the computer. I prefer having a book in my hands. ^^'

    Thanks though.

    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.

    His e-mail address is david.freedel AT gmail.com.

    I think it's great that he made the course available to anyone who wants it, and so hope people will write him to thank him.
