RE: Russian language: no more bullshit
так говорят русские "Russian as Russians Speak It"




These are some interesting YouTube tutorials I've found for help in learning Russian. I would say they are good to get into for an early stage beginner (such as myself), once you've completed Pimsleur Russian 1 and the Memrise "Learn Basic Russian" course. (After which you'll have some basics and can read/pronounce phonetically the Cyrillic alphabet.) Just follow along with the dialogue and then look up unfamiliar words (i.e. using MasterRussian.com or Google Translate).

I'm really not sure what the story is behind them. They seem (or the audio portion, at least) to have been produced by the old USSR state-run record label Melodiya. But someone has edited them and added music (and quick shots of Soviet propaganda posters which make them kind of funny...). Regardless of that, I think they are useful for hearing the language spoken, and you'll pick up some new phrases, even if some vocabulary or city names (i.e. Sverdlovsk) may be outdated.

наслаждайтесь, товарищи!
