    No they are not. They just give you a basic understanding of how the language works. Then you are on your own! With a limited vocabulary. I think that after finishing Pimsleur (along with your course i.e. New Penguin), ideally, one must go live in Russia for 6 months in order to speak Russian.
    Isn't that stupid? Having only three basic levels? How long does it take the average learner to master these three levels? A month, a year? I think that after finishing any language course, you must go live in a country where the language you're learning is spoken.
    Do you have an extra room for me? If so, will you pick me up at the airport?

    I beg your pardon?! :P
    Just joking.

    I could possibly arrange your stay in Moscow. There are no vacant rooms in my apartment at the moment, so most likely I'll have to put you in my room. What do you think? :P And which airport will you be coming in to?

    Cool! Also ask him whether he needs security. I've got a very close friend who runs a security company.

    Cool! Ask your friend if he will give me a job.
