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.
