Still good, even after Michel Thomas
on 18 October 2007
As with the other Michel Thomas courses (only this time without him) this is an excellent language learning tool. You very quickly find yourself able to express quite complex ideas in Russian.
The course easily gets to grips with the strangeness (to an English ear) of the Russian emphases in pronunciation, of intonation in questions (utterly different to the English), and of the soft sound.
Sometimes you might feel like shouting at the two students Natasha Bershadski is working with - but that all adds to the fun!
My only regret is that we are going to have to wait so long for the Advanced course (scheduled for March 2008 I think).
