Let's Go! Poekhali!: Textbook 1
by Chernyshov Stanislav
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice book to learn russian, 20 Nov. 2014
I have been working with this book in my Russian language course.
Very simple but very efficient. You need a teacher to work with because it is all in Russian.
It is well worth the money you put in.

4.0 out of 5 stars pleasant dictionary, 28 Mar. 2009
Don't expect to find an exhaustive dictionary of Russian with this book. The definitions are concise. Some keywords are very well explained.
This dictionary will certainly be more profitable to beginners or learners who want to refresh their russian. It is worth the little money that you can put in.
For more serious studies, buy the O.R.D. 3rd edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Grammar Course that you will refer to, 24 Mar. 2009
It is a very complete grammar course. The author goes deep into the rules and some exercices are given in order to work on different subjects.
I would recommend this book as it summarizes the essential of the difficulties in russian.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous Concise Dictionary and Thesaurus, 18 Feb. 2009
How to put clear definitions and synonyms in just one single book without being too boring for the learner ? You have the answer with this fantastic tool. Don't miss the Wordfinder inside and especially the Foreign Words and Phrases otherwise you won't be able to do a "beau geste" to enter the " beau monde".
Oxford did really a great performance with editing this dictionary.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest Oxford Dictionaries, 15 Feb. 2009
My goal into reading dictionaries is to get a richer language, very near of a native speaker. This O.D. provides a lot of concise but complete definitions and is in the same time not at all boring. I thought that it could be a loss of money because i had bought the Oxford English Dictionary, but it is quite different and is very worth the money and time that i put.

As a conclusion it is a near perfect book and i will keep it with my respectable Oxford Dictionary of English and New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary.

3.0 out of 5 stars very concise, 4 Feb. 2009
Good dictionary but it is a Chamber's ....I thought it would have had more definitions in the Thesaurus Part... On my viewpoint the same dictionary from Collins is superior.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oxford dictionary, what a great dictionary !, 18 Jan. 2009
I have several dictionaries in english at home. This dictionary is my favourite one with the American Heritage Dictionary.
Very complete, very clear, very well written.
Unfortunately it does not include any cd rom .

In conclusion, every lover of the english language should have this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars very witty little book, 18 Jan. 2009
The subject of phrasal verbs is a very difficult one for a frenchman.
This book brings the essential in a very funny and witty way.
Several drawings inside the book make the study easier.
For a more complete work, i suggest the Oxford phrasal verbs or the Longman phrasal Verbs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite interesting, 17 Jan. 2009
Similar e-dictionaries exist today, most of the times included in the paper dictionary. Nevertheless this product is a good tool to improve
its own vocabulary and prononciation .
As a conclusion useful when used when you want to learn english as a foreign language
