  • By Cazshie on 10 October 2007

    In my opinion a very poor attempt at a phrase book. If you have an understanding of the Cyrillic alphabet then you are a stage too far for this book and if you dont then the inability of this phrase book to actual use Russian words means you'll be pretty unlikely to recognise anything when you are visiting anyway.Much better phrasebooks are available (such as Lonely Planet) so I'd be tempted to run with an alternative instead of parting with any cash for this item.

    I am going to Russia and I bought this hoping to learn some necessary phrases and words for a short stay. Whilst this book is excellent for someone going to be in Russia for several week, and it is excellently clear as to pronunciation etc, for quick use is not ideal as phrases are not grouped finely enough. Never one to run down Dummies, who I think do good stuff, this book for my personal use was too complicated and intense on grammar and the like

    I bought this as a secret santa for a friend studying russian Language at university.. and to my surprise she is finding it very useful, which leads me to believe it might be a little to advanced for a beginner
