The Russian Audio Course for Women
and welcome to the Russian Language Course for Women.
My name is Steve Galvin. I am the creator of Russian
Language for Lovers.
The initial idea for this website and audio course came from
my own experiences with Russian dating. I had certainly had
a lot of fun and adventure, but throughout all of it, my
experiences were filled with so much stress, frustration and
I had wanted to enjoy a fun, happy, exciting relationship,
but because of the language barrier, I could never fully
relax and enjoy it. There were constant misunderstandings,
confusion and a lack of ability to talk about the things I
really wanted to.
Over the course of a few years, I had been learning Russian,
and even though I got to a point where I spoke it quite
well, I found there was still a missing piece. While all of
the traditional language courses and books teach you how to
speak in general situations, they do not help you with the
important topics you really want to talk about in romantic
I spent much time with dictionaries and my own translation
attempts, and also asking my language teachers for help
(which was rather embarrassing, given the nature of the
things I was asking.) It was a long and drawn-out process.
In the end, I found myself wishing that there was a course
that taught me all of that in one place! It was then that I
realized I needed to create that course myself. And not just
for me... But for everyone else who is also having the same
challenge - wanting to be able to communicate easily with
their Russian partner!!
Initially, I expected that our website would help MEN
... but I hadn't
given any thought at all to helping women too.
When I started receiving emails from women dating Russian
men, I realized we had to fix that... So we set about
creating a course for women also.
Since Russian is spoken differently depending on whether you
are male or female (and whether you are talking to a man or
a woman), we had to make a number of adjustments and new
recordings to create a course specifically for women.
Aim of This Course
The Russian Course for Women is designed for anyone who is
currently in a relationship with (or currently dating) a
Russian man, or anyone who wants to. It is for those of you
who want to improve your ability to communicate with Russian
men, so that you can enjoy more of the fun, enjoyable times,
and less of the confusing, stressful ones.
This course is intended to help you in the following ways...
- Learn how to talk about the topics that are an
important, everyday part of romantic relationships.
- Save you lots and lots of time that it takes if you
try to work out these topics on your own.
- Avoid having to ask a language teacher or translator
to help you with private and personal matters between
you and your partner.
- Genuinely improve your relationship with your Russian
partner and enjoy easier, more relaxed, satisfying times
- Pleasantly surprise your Russian partner, since it
will make a wonderful difference to HIM if you are able
to communicate sometimes in his native language, not
just in English.
- Have lots of fun putting this knowledge to use in your
dating / relationships.
This is not a big-budget production. It is not a
bells-and-whistles course from a big language company.
It is simply a very specialized course for those of you who
want to speak about the topics that are unique to romantic
The course was put together over a number of months with the
assistance of my wonderful Russian friends and teachers. It
combines about 800 clearly and slowly spoken Russian phrases
(by a native speaker, Daria), with a written guide that
provides the words and phrases in English, Cyrillic
(Russian) and phonetic translation to help with your
We have tried to make this course as user-friendly as
possible, and there are 2 product options based on your
personal preferences. Firstly, there is a CD version
(shipped directly to you anywhere in the world), for those
of you who prefer to have the actual disks (4 disks in
total). Otherwise, there is an mp3 version which can be
downloaded in a few minutes (maybe longer if your internet
connection is slow). There are no disks with the mp3 option.
The course is laid out in a clear, logical format that
follows the path of relationships from initial meetings
through to serious relationships, marriage and beyond. It's
also easy to skip straight to the particular topics that are
most important to you right now.
If you're just beginning your relationship with a Russian
man, focus on the topics at the beginning of the course.
If you're already in a serious relationship, and you want to
enhance it even more, then you can go straight to the topics
that are most relevant for you.
In addition to the 3 main sections (new relationships,
dating, and serious relationships), we also debated whether
or not to included Russian language for the "intimate"
moments you share with your partner.
While it would have been easier for us to avoid this topic
altogether (since it is a very personal one), we eventually
came to the clear decision that it really needed to be
included. For the very reason that these are some of the
most important moments you will share with your partner, and
because these words / topics are almost impossible to learn
on your own.
I must point out that these intimate expressions are just a
beginning place, and a general guide, and we have been
careful to choose words and phrases that we feel are most
helpful and not offensive. We hope you find this to be the
When we finished creating this course, I was extremely proud
and also very excited. This was exactly the type of product
that would have saved me so much frustration and stress
I have been equally pleased to receive thanks and
appreciation from others who have enjoyed the course and
found what a difference it has made for them.
I hope the course is a great benefit for you, and if you

. I live in Brisbane, Australia and
I am happy to help with any queries you may have.
Below is a detailed summary of the course itself, and we
have also provided detailed technical instructions for both
the mp3 and cd versions. Again, if you have any questions or
problems, send me an email and I'll help you to get it
Best wishes and good luck with your Russian!
