Listen

There are two audio files to listen in the beginning of every lesson.
A short dialogue in Russian that usually describes a typical russian situation. While you are listening to it you can read the subtitles both in Russian and in English. The yellow pointer will help you understand what line you are listening to at the moment.
The podcast itself where two russian hosts will lead you through the dialogue. They translate it for you line by line and then they take a closer look at grammar and vocabulary. At the end of each podcast you will hear some interesting stuff about how things work in Russia.

Read

After listening to the podcast, you can move on to the lesson we've prepared for you. It’s full of usefull information you wouldn’t want to miss.
The vocabulary section explains the most important phrases and gives the translation of some other words from the dialogue.
A closer look helps you understand better how the new phrases are used and gives you some additional vocabulary on the topic.
The grammar part gives a detailed review of the new rules. It has all the needed tables, clear explanations of the rules and a lot of examples to help you remember the new material.
Cultural tips are there for you to help you understand this weird Russia better. National pecularities, everyday life habits, a bunch of tips and useful links that may help you find your way in the country.
