"A great way to learn; it's fast and it lasts". (The Daily Telegraph)

Five minutes into the first CD, you already feel like you're winning. (Time Out)

Michel Thomas is a precious find indeed. (The Guardian)

Thomas makes it simple (Sunday Times)

Michel's methods will teach you effectively and easily (Daily Star)

Hugely inspiring (Red)

Ideal for any business traveller who needs to be able to get around confidently. (Sunday Business)

"Excellent for learning ... This entirely audio course is easy to use and quickly results in some useful ability in the new language. Great for the car." (Adventure Travel)

"Moving along at a relaxed, slow pace, punctuated by amusing anecdotes and jokes from the teacher, the new words, phrases and language rules are gently introduced and reinforced through subtle repetition without ever being tedious. In fact, despite a distinct emphasis on non-work, the course proves very effective and enjoyable, and its format is ideal for learning anywhere you like. So, if you only want to learn to speak the language, this course is highly recommended." (Top Real Travel Product, Real Travel)

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING 18 Mar 2014
Format:Audio Download
Do NOT purchase this download if your intention is to burn to a CD, as it is not possible due to the format of the download. A total waste of time for anybody planning to listen to it in the car. This oversight is inane beyond comprehension.

5.0 out of 5 stars a decent introduction to the Michel Thomas method 13 Jan 2011
By a reader from Illinois - Published on
This set is the first two CDs of the Michel Thomas technique Fundamentals of Russian as taught by Natasha Bershadski. I find the method as taught by Beshadski to be quite fine. She comes across as a delightful person who loves her subject and has both unending patience and humor plus exceptional spirit and energy. I rather prefer her to Michel Thomas himself who always seems a bit prickly to me. By the way Ms Barshadski has a wonderful accent when speaking English. She's very clear and easily understood. Her voice is very pleasant to listen to with good resonance. She sounds very like the German actress, Barbara Sukowa when the latter speaks English.

Regarding the course materials, they give one a sense of the way the course works and the way the teacher works. If you like it, you'll surely want to get the entire foundation course. Which leads me to suggest that if you go the Michel Thomas UK web site, you'll find that you can get a free download of the first hour or so of the course...which should serve much the same purpose as this set does.

As I've indicated, I like this course. I enjoy language learning as a hobby in spite of the fact that I don't do it very well. If we could all go to a really good immersion school in the country of the language we wish to learn (like a Goethe Institut in Germany) for several months, that might be ideal. But that's really quite beyond what most home study students want or can afford. And for me this course works quite well...which, by the way, surprised me because I've always preferred courses taught entirely in the target language. In Russian that was not working for me. This method does.
