Learn another language the way you learnt your own! As a child, you learnt your own language naturally and enjoyably: now you can learn Russian in the same way. There’s no books and no writing, and you will achieve confidence – in hours. With the “Michel Thomas Method”, you learn the language in small steps, building it up yourself to produce ever more complicated sentences. The Method works as it breaks down the language into its component parts, enabling learners to reconstruct the language themselves – to form their own sentences, to say what they want, when they want. On the recording you will hear two students being taught in real time and in a classroom situation, so you are learning with others. You enjoy their success and learn from their mistakes. You, as learner, become the third student and participate actively in the class. In a very short time you will be able to manipulate Russian structures to express what you want to say. You can use the unique method perfected over fifty years by the celebrated psychologist and linguist Michel Thomas. The Method works WITH your brain, helping you to build up your Russian in manageable, enjoyable steps by thinking out the answers for yourself. You learn through listening and speaking – the way you learnt as a child. You pick up the language naturally and unforgettably. These all-audio courses are accompanied by an index, where the Russian words are printed in Roman script and translated, for easy reference. If you want to learn it, the Cyrillic alphabet is taught on a dedicated audio track and shown in the booklet; but you don’t have to know the Cyrillic script to learn Russian with the Michel Thomas Method. This 8-hour “Russian Foundation Course” is one of the Michel Thomas Method Russian courses published by Hodder Arnold, the others being the 5-hour “Advanced Course”, the 2-hour “Foundation Review” and the 1-hour “Advanced Review”.
