Review by

I've been working my way through it, on and off, and it's really good. Most of the limited Russian I know is from this book, and I strangely haven't forgot it, even after not having looked at it in months!

Review by

The New Penguin Russian Course gives a very good, in-depth grammatical overview that is a wonderful addition to either classroom learning or individual language study. I use this book in combination with audio tapes to teach myself Russian, and so far it's gone pretty well.
