Any language is a very complex structure. Languages took thousands of years to develop into what we know them to be today and are still developing. And there is no better key to mastering such a complex structure than constant practice. Russian is not the easiest language to learn, so one should practice Russian on a regular basis to stay ‘fit’. You can practice Russian by reading Russian literature or Russian news on the Internet. Both are easily available and cover a wide range of subjects. You can practice Russian by listening to native Russian speech, be it in Russian movies or on Russian TV and Russian-language radio. Writing and speaking are also indispensable for mastering the Russian language. This course provides you with a wide array of activities to help you practice Russian for everyday needs from pleasure to business through reading, listening, writing and speaking. The course has been designed by professional authors to be fun and easy, but with a serious linguistic foundation in mind.
