Learn to Speak read and understand Russian like a native speaker.
The materials of Modern Russian, like those of its prototype, the Modern Language Association's Modern Spanish, provide a language course based on audio-lingual principles and aimed at speaking proficiency within the framework of the traditional language program. Modern Russian consists of two volumes of eighteen lessons each, designed for a two-year course. Stressing the fundamental structural features of the contemporary spoken language, the thirty-six lessons present a total vocabulary of some 2700 items. The audio recordings that accompany the written materials are an integral part of the two-year program.
