Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oxford Take Off in Russian (Paperback with CDs) (CD-ROM)
I really enjoyed it. I have done some Russian before so loved it. Clearly laid out, and fast-moving, it's a lot of material for a very reasonable price. Came in very good time and in excellent condition. It's a very good buy for the money- and my favourite out of two purposes for a Russian teaching package.
If I were being pernickity, I just think that it's not quite as practically absed as it might be, eg, in early section it mentions what "today" is in Russian, but not yesterday or tomorrow. If you're on holiday, you need the vocab, eg, if transport, are thigns early, later, delayed, cancelled, etc. Very traditional approach to language with some modernness thrown in, eg, for me I do not need to know what the Russian is for grandmother, nephew, etc, is if I'm going on holiday or business.
