Learn Russian at your own pace

How do Russian letters differ from English letters? How do you choose the correct form of specific verbs? What are some useful, everyday Russian words? With Russian: A Self-Teaching Guide, you'll discover the answers to these questions and many more about this challenging language.

This thorough primer presents an easy-to-follow, proven method for grasping the basics of Russian, complete with helpful tips on writing and pronouncing Cyrillic characters and building your Russian vocabulary. You get lively dialogues and reading exercises, concise lessons on grammar and usage, notes on Russian culture, and a compact Russian-English glossary. The clearly structured format of Russian makes it fully accessible, providing an easily understood, comprehensive overview for everyone from students to business and leisure travelers to Russian culture mavens.

Like all Self-Teaching Guides, Russian allows you to build gradually on what you have learned—at your own pace. Questions and self-tests reinforce the information in each chapter and allow you to skip ahead or focus on specific areas of concern. Packed with useful, up-to-date information, this clear, concise volume is a valuable learning tool and reference source for anyone who wants to improve his or her understanding of basic Russian.
