You learned just about every English word you know in context, and you should be learning all new Russian words in the same way. Trying to learn new Russian words through rote memorization is absolute worst approach possible.

I recently found your podcast. I am a native Spanish speaker but my English is good enough to follow the lessons. It takes me three or four times going through each lessons but I will learn every chapter to the details. I like your lessons very much so far
When I was learning Spanish in high school, my teacher taught us how to say a rolled “R” as in the word “Para” by saying to us “Pot o’ coffee” “Pot o’ tea.” It seems to work better for me the than “Udder.”
The thing is, Lori, is that the rolled R’s in Russian and Spanish are not the same.
Really enjoying the way you teach. I like how you emphasize on learning things by recognizing the patterns since that’s what I’ve been doing in pretty much on trying to remember and learn anything. Just hard to find a good way of explaining it. Currently over halfway through RME podcast and definitely checking out the accelerator course afterwards. I was wondering if you know any others that teach in a similar way for Spanish and Italian as well.
Glad you’re enjoying it. No plans yet to do similar courses for Spanish or Italian, unfortunately.
Keep up the great work, and I look forward to welcoming you to R.A.!
Great course!!! I started a one-year Beginner’s Course at my local university last year but gave up after a few months as the tutor was going too fast! I think I have already learnt more with the first FIVE of your lessons than in half a year of evening class! The pace, frequent repetition and plentiful opportunities to speak/practise in each session are great. Thanks a lot and I look forward to my daily lesson now very much indeed!

Hi Mark, I love your Russian course, but to remember all the the new words, I write them down, but now I found an alphabeth in Russian and I am learning how to write in Russian. Because you emphyzise how important it is to write down all the new learned words on cards, but if I cannot write well the Russian letters how can I learn Russian properly.
I love the way you teach but at the moment I am the free podcast, but is there a time limit if I buy your course?

Apologies for the delay. There’s no time limit. Once you’re a full member of R.A. you’ll have lifetime access to the course, including all future upgrades.
I found your RME podcast by chance and have really enjoyed it! I want to continue learning, but need a program that’s primarily in a podcast format, as I spend a lot of time in the car and have very little free time to read or write. Is you Russian Accelerator program in a similar format? Thanks!
There’s tons of audio in Russian Accelerator, but I don’t want to mislead you: At some point you’d need to watch the instructional videos, too.
For those wanting/needing an all-audio course, we just released Russian Made Easy PLUS. (www.RMEplus.com) I think you’ll really enjoy it!
I just started my way on learning Russian and, fortunately, I found your podcast surprisingly. It was the best way to learn a new language which I must admitted. I did really enjoy learning Russian with you, though the grammar was completely different from English and my mother tongue, Mandarin Chinese. It took me a lot of time to figure out the sentences which somehow I must pause the podcast frequently. I pave was slow, but the base was strong. I must’d got to express my appreciation for your great work. Thanks!
Glad to have you onboard! I’ll look for you in my Russian Accelerator course, once you finish RME. 🙂
Thanks for the podcasts! They’re giving me a good start for before I start fulltime Russian training in a few months.
Tnank you, Geoff. And I hope you’ll check out Russian Accelerator. It’s my online, video course.
We’ll turn you into a confident, conversational Russian speaker.

Cheers from Ukraine,
Thank you for making the podcasts available for free! I am an ESL teacher, and I currently have a lot of Kazakh students (who all speak Russian). I am using your podcasts to gain some understanding of how Russian grammar differs from English grammar, which helps me to explain English grammar more effectively. What I hadn’t thought about before listening to the podcasts, was that I also got some insight into your teaching methods. That has also helped me improve my teaching – before I started teaching these groups, I had very little experience in teaching abolute beginners. Both being a beginner myself (in learning Russian) and seeing your methods has taught me a lot. Thanks so much.
I also have a question: there are a lot of podcasts and apps out there for learning English. Do you know of any good ones that would be suitable for beginners whose first language is Russian? Thanks.
Thanks for the wonderful way on how to learn the language. I have been to many classes and nothing compares to yours. God bless always.
I have enjoyed you podcast on Itunes. Being that I am working quite a bit in Kiev, you podcast has made it possible for me to learn while I drive. I am now able to get around and communicate at a basic level. Thanks!!
