Russian with Native Speakers (Book 1) presents the results of a survey given to 14 native speakers of Russian. Each of the 30 sections in the book begins with a question from the survey followed by the 14 responses and a breakdown of the vocabulary. Each section concludes with a page where you are encouraged to give your own answer to the question using newly learned words and phrases.

The book has been designed in such a way that it can be an effective learning tool for learners at all levels, with glossaries of even the most basic words for beginners, and grammatical information for more advanced learners.

    This is great! After enjoying this “A Little About Myself” series in both Levantine and Egyptian Arabic, I really enjoy brushing up on Russian colloquial speech this way! I haven’t noticed this book before, thanks!
