Princeton Russian in a zip file

Harold let me know that the Princeton Russian course, which I had made a torrent file for, is now available as a zip file from I can assure you from experience that getting it from that site will be 1) much faster and 2) much less hassle, than it would be if you got it via the torrent.  You can locate the zip file link here; just pay attention to the stipulations for the download. (Basically, contact the creator and let him know you’re using it.)

Thanks, Harold!

    Is there an answer key available for the Princeton Russian Course? Thank you!

    Hi Shelley,

    I’ve interacted with David Freedel, the maker of the course, through email, and that’s actually one of the first things I asked him. Alas, no, there isn’t.

    While I know it’s not a perfect solution, I’d recommend to get Brown’s New Penguin Russian Course, and use it as a supplement to the Princeton course. It has a lot of exercises in it, all which have translations / answer keys. That’s what I’m doing, anyway. 🙂 The price tag on Brown’s book is very low ($12 at, or thereabouts), so it shouldn’t put too big of a dent in your language learning budget.

    I have created a free wiki on Google Sites for students using the Princeton Russian Course to collaboratively create an answer key. It will basically be a repository for scanned copies of completed assignments, so that students can compare their solutions. This seemed like the easiest means of avoiding font/encoding issues.

    If you would like to participate in this project, please go to and request access.

      I don’t think David monitors this post; sorry!
