Tailored to today's learner, this beginner-level, essential course is designed to give students an introduction to speaking Russian beyond simple vocabulary lists. Living Language students can practice with games and quizzes, review vocabulary with digital flashcards, and listen to supplemental audio downloads for practice on the go!
Living Language courses feature a four-part structure in each lesson which effectively teaches and reinforces Russian vocabulary, grammar, comprehension, and speaking skills. Lessons cover:
Presentation: words and phrases are presented first, followed by sentences and conversations. Grammar is explained in a relevant context with clear explanations and comparisons to what the learner already knows, while examples reinforce vocabulary.
Practice: learners practice with written, audio, and interactive exercises. Cumulative exercises recycle material to move language from short-term to long-term memory.
Expansion: learners encounter new vocabulary in controlled contexts, but as the course progresses, less predictable contexts are used, expanding abilities to handle language in a more natural manner.
Review & Reinforcement: each dialogue, example sentence, and practice exercise, reviews previous content while putting new material in context.
