So far I completed all 3 Pimsleur units as well as Michel Thomas (didn't do advanced one though). My plan of attack is:

- Duolingo (30-60 min/day)
- Memrise (30-60 min/day)
- RussianWorld youtube series - one 30 minute lesson a day
- Real Russian Club lesson youtube series (1 hour but split into 30 minute blocks)

I am hoping once I complete all of these I can then go to Ukraine/Belarus or Russia and start immersing myself as well as possibly doing some group course.

Get yourself a grammar book, the New Penguin one is good from experience but most are pretty similar. Realistically knowing the grammar rules back to front makes things a lot easier and is a strong foundation.


I definitely agree with that. Some posters here think that it's not necessary to spend much time on formal grammar when learning a slavic language but in my experience it really simplified the whole language once I spent a lot of time doing grammar exercises and reading grammar explanations. It especially made building sentences much easier when speaking.

I'd personnally add a 15-20 minutes of grammar to that daily routine. It would accelerate all the learning process IMO.

My favorite book was : Schaum's Outline of Russian Grammar, Second Edition
