Subject: Learning Russian as a Second Language
Question: I want to learn Russian, but the college nearest to my city does not offer the class. They do have an on-line course, but have not check into it. I purcased Pimsleur's CD's to learn Russian, but feel this will not be adequate. I personally feel I need someone locally who I can converse with, but I have not found anyone so far. What do you suggest to assist me in being successful in learning conversational Russian. My motivation lies in the fact I hosted Mikhail from Russia this past school year and want to be able to converse with he and his family in Russian. Thank for your assistance. Joel Conley
Reply: Check into the online courses. Think about renting videos of Russian movies. After you have some Russian under your belt, you could perhaps get a pen pal or Skype pal.
