Our Review of Pimsleur Russian

We found the Pimsleur format to be very effective. The lessons go into a lot of detail on important aspects of the language, including correct pronunciation, word stress and typical sentence structures. The lesson contains a lot of repetition, although not in a boring "rote-learning" style, and by the end of the 30 minutes, learners should be very comfortable with that topic.

The lesson format may not be to everyone's liking as there is a lot of emphasis on correct pronunciation. However, the format will be very attractive to those of you who like to have a clear focus on each syllable of words. We certainly found it effective for learning in a way that will lock the vocabulary into your memory.

** Pimsleur now offer all their courses on either CD or MP3 download. You can also download the courses in sections, for example lessons 1-5, 5-10 and so on. This makes it much cheaper to start out and get used to the Pimsleur method before committing to a more comprehensive course.
