RE: Russian language: no more bullshit
Additional update -- as I continue to plow through Pimsleur at a one-a-day rate, now on #36. I'm auditing, for free, a university course -- the first year third quarter. Six weeks of Pimsleur and some 1X1 conversation lessons has me feeling close to where these students are who've been studying for 6 months. The unversity class uses the "Golosa" textbook. By itself, this book would be a nightmare -- even the first few chapters are loaded with useless vocabulary which won't help you much in daily speaking. But with a tutor there are helpful role-playing exercises and grammar drills which are good to do with a native speaker in your one-on-one lessons. Assimil, the other grammar book I have, is very good and self-contained enough to the point where I can learn without another speaker, but contains less material I can use in my tutoring sessions.

At the moment, I'm thinking the best way for me to improve rapidly is with more one-on-one lessons, with English strictly banned...
