Hi! Thanks for the welcome.
I wanted to know if, in Russian course, there is any audio lessons.
as much as i know , there is no audio lesson in it.but i just questşşoned to the founder of the site so we will be informed about that soon.
do you have a msn account by the way ?
The point that I've registered here is the need for comprehension of scientific russian. Because the russian academic world unfortunately lacking of english and fortunately the science they produce is, in my humble opinion, might be, in the highest quality. So my concerns are finding out the scientific vocabulary and audio stuff.
Yes, it is nice to see some interaction. I would welcome you and others to post all so we can benefit from input. I am having a challenging time without the ability to actually hear & listen to the Russian language. None the less I am determined to
learn all that I can.
I too am learning the Russian language. I'm traveling to Ukraine and it seems the languages are similar. Due to that... I have been using a free Ukrainian language site... www.byki.com they sell an upgrade for $35.00 US. The free version is great for flashing through cards that pronounce the words and phrases as you see them. I have checked the Ukrainian spelling against Russian and they are very similar. The pronunciation is even more similar. If anyone is in Ukraine now please let me know I would love to chat. I will be in Kiev November 28th.
Hello and nice to meet you all.The idea of studying Russian by myself has been already brewing in my mind for few months, so besides buying a self-study course, I dug up the internet for useful material and I came across this:
Even though the dictionary is still under construction, there are still enough entries for a beginner level, which come together with exhaustive explanation i.e. pronunciation (audio) and fully word inflection.
The grammar part worth(more than) a look, as well as the whole SEELRC site, especially if you're interested South-European languages.
hi monica nice to meet you too .this site will be really usefull for all of us. could you please give me your msn addy so that i can add you and practice with you. my addy is here:
I too had a lot of problems with pronunciation as it's hard to guess from textbooks how real Russian words actually sound. So I put a website together recently so people can listen to Russians (in Russia!) saying common phrases and words.
You can find it at:
If you have any suggestions on how to improve the site please post here or email me. I hope it helps some students on here.
Meanwhile, I'm going to explore what's available here for a while!
I'm hoping this is a good course and that I will learn the basics of Russian before I hit the fleet. I'm in the United States Navy, and I am almost 100% Russian and I like to know my roots. I am forbiden to learn Russian though until I go to Russia but personaly I feel thats a little odd. Well nice saying hi and I'm going to go learn now!
Thank you for your time!
Hi everyone. Thanks Bethlehem for the welcome.I have Russian friends and have been trying to learn this great language for a while, including a beginners course at Sydney University. Still trying, and forgetting. This seems a good place to work away at it. caitlin
I just joined this course and I must say, I'm impressed!
I always wanted to learn this beautiful language but never had time. Now when I'm expecting have lots of time in my hands. Originally I come from Poland, so Russian is quite common in my country.
Hope we will have a good time over here.
