RE: Russian language: no more bullshit
Ready for my move to Russia later this month, I have been hammering the language books...and can now converse for a couple of hours (with a nice girl of course!) via Skype no problem, even if I need some fine tuning.

Cannot wait to get out there and put it to "good" use!

You are too harsh with them, comrade.

If you can understand if it means"yes" or it mean "no" in context of the conversation, you pass.

RE: Russian language: no more bullshit
I spoke some basic Russian with these Kyrgyz civ. guys on base the other day and then Bulgarian with some this Bosniak and a Macedonian chick (7.5) who were civilian contractors. Right now I'm at the point where my Bulgarian is stronger than my Russian. I want to continue Russian really bad but I think Bulgarian will help me break through in the Balkans. Interesting enough though, I can read Russian better now because of having to read so much Bulgarian out loud to my online teacher. Russki jezyk ochen' trudno, no ja znaju chto on ochen' vazhna Wink

IMO I don't think Russians in NY are the same as those in the homeland. I was in NY for 7 years and have dated and hung out with Russian girls.

i would assume they are as different as they get... but I may go just because i wanted to try to force myself to speak... as much as possible. The only problem is I was reading that most of the people there are actually Ukrainian decent.

RE: Russian language: no more bullshit
Although I have no desire to learn Russian, I love reading language threads like this.

It psyches me up. Go get 'em guys. Go hard, dive in, and swing that saber.

Remember: every day, every day, every day. No exceptions. I don't care if you're fucking dying. Your noses better be in a fucking Russian book.

And soon enough, you will see progress....

If you visit Russia everyone speaks to you in Russian helping you too learn the language. After a while you become fluent. Russian has great assimilating power(dozens of nations speak it).

Yeah I hit it you should head down there for an afternoon kinda cool in that there are signs in Cyrillic everywhere and it just feels a little different.

Right on the beach too so maybe try it out in summer? Some nice looking ladies on the beach when I was there.....it's a loooong ride out there on the subway though.

Can anybody recommend what I should continue with after the Pimsleur program?

RE: Russian language: no more bullshit
I'm doing the full Pimsleur course for the third time, and am getting annoyed at Unit 3. Now that my ability is a bit higher, I'm seeing that the layout of that unit is not logical and just downright confusing (switching between perfective and imperfective aspects in the same lesson, for example). Also if you don't know the case rules, many of the sentences won't make any sense and will seem randomly constructed to you. I think most people would be better off doing units 1 and 2 and moving on to Michel Thomas.

Pimsleur helps you memorize certain sentences/words while Michel Thomas gives you more of an overall understanding to construct your own sentences. Both have their place in an audio learning program.

RE: Russian language: no more bullshit
If you're planning to go back to Ukraine, maybe it would be wise to learn a bit of Ukrainian on the side, as speaking Russian in Kiev (at the current time) might get you attacked! I'm sure that will quieten down but I would certainly be scared of speaking Russian there at the moment, even as a foreigner.

RE: Russian language: no more bullshit
I'll check out Michel Thomas this time.
All in the name of irony I can tell that I recently had a Russian girl staying over at my place for quite a time and now when she's gone I wanted to pick the language up again.

She turned into a real vampire bitch every time I wanted her to help me with my Russian. She kept bitching about that I need to read grammatics and буквар before she can learn me anything more.
I tried to talk her into it a few times but she wouldn't change her mind.

Not to mention that her English was so awful so I had to simplify my speaking to maximum to make her understand me. So both my English and Russian skills were reduced as long as she was here.
What a blowback language wise,but she indeed had other qualities.

I'm curious how the language situation plays out in Ukraine. Until the recent madness, Russian was the predominant language in Kiev as far as I know but that might change.

To the guys with advanced Russian skills:

Can you get the gist of a Ukrainian conversation or is it too different?

RE: Russian language: no more bullshit
If everything goes well, I'll spend one month in Belarus doing an intensive Russian course this summer since it is much cheaper than Russia.

Have you guys tried busuu? I used it for Polish and it wasn't too bad except for the occasional unit with usless vocabulary. I've just started the Russian version and I have noticed there are no resources for learning the cyrillic alphabet, so I'm guessing I'll have to pick it up somewhere else. One cool feature is that it has a bit of a social network component to it. In the past months I've pretty much been spammed by Polish girls learning Spanish and I'm starting to think that there is some potential for getting bangs from it. Banana

RE: Russian language: no more bullshit
I just found out last month I'm moving to Moscow for work in July. So far, I'm 28 lessons in to Pimsleur I. A friend who taught himself half a dozen languages strongly recommended Assimil (books plus audio), and I'd also recommended it, although I should qualify that by noting that 'm just 10 lessons in at this point. The thing I like about Pimsleur is that I can do it while working out, cooking, eating, and driving without ever referring to a book. However, for my profession, I'll need to be able to speed read in Russian, and for that i feel like the quality of Assimil is top notch.

Also, when I learned Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish, the gold standard for me was not just listening to lots of audio, but 1-on-1 conversation practice. Thus my strategy is also to do several hours a week of Russian conversation. For these sessions no English is allowed whatsoever, but I do allow my tutor to write words in English if I just don't understand.

@Luisaceo......I have used busuu and also conversation exchange......for me it is "win win".....as of course I am trying to improve my Russian, and also have access to girls......who don't doubt your intentions once they can see you have base language skills (and a story behind why you are learning).....had a degree of success with it, however, sure when I go to live in Russia soon the options will multiply.
