Learn the basics of Russian through videos

While exploring the forums at MasterRussian.com, I came across a post pointing to a set of Russian language learning videos on YouTube.

To make it a bit easier on Language Geek readers, here’s all of the links to the individual videos, along with what they go over:

By the way, despite him speaking English with a thick Russian accent, he’s not actually Russian; it’s just part of his skit. He’s actually English.

  1. Have heard of Lingq? I think this it is an amazing site for language learning. You probably have heard of it but if you haven’t I think it would really help you: lingq.com. It has a bunch of audio media in like eight different languages with the transcript written on the same page. You can highlight words you don’t know and the dictionary will define them for you. Check it out!

  2. Hey Evilis,

    Yeah, I’ve heard of (and tried) Lingq. I didn’t care for it. Too clunky, and I didn’t care for the dictionaries that were being used. Last time I used it, it didn’t have any capability to detect separable verbs in German, either.

    But, thanks for the tip! Indeed, the audio and the transcripts are still useful; I just don’t like the Lingq “system.” 🙂
