Learn another language the way you learnt your own You learnt your own language naturally and enjoyably: now you can learn Russian in the same way. You'll stick with it because you'll love it * Use the unique method perfected over fifty years by the celebrated psychologist and linguist Michel Thomas. * This method works with your brain, helping you to build up your Russian in manageable, enjoyable steps by thinking out the answers for yourself. * You learn through listening and speaking - without the pressure of writing or memorising. * You pick up the language naturally and unforgettably. This much-anticipated Vocabulary Course carries forward the Michel Thomas teaching tradition and faithfully follows his unique approach to foreign language learning. The essential format is the same all-audio, building-block approach. The native-speaker teacher instructs two students in the recording studio in real time and the student at home becomes the third member of the class. Learning vocabulary is notoriously difficult if attempted in the traditional way - with long lists and hours of memorisation. However, with the Michel Thomas Method, new words and phrases are presented in such a way that they cannot be forgotten. They are interwoven with what has gone before so they are imprinted in your knowledge bank for ever. The vocabulary in the courses is carefully chosen from a relatively small number of 'power words' which open up an amazing range of expression and comprehension. Building and expanding on the language structures taught in the Foundation and Advanced Courses, these new Vocabulary Courses give you all you need to enjoy travelling in the Russian-speaking world, be it for business or pleasure.

"A great way to learn; it's fast and it lasts". -- The Daily Telegraph "Five minutes into the first CD, you already feel like you're winning." -- Time Out "Michel Thomas is a precious find indeed." -- The Guardian "Thomas makes it simple" -- Sunday Times "Michel's methods will teach you effectively and easily" -- Daily Star "Hugely inspiring" -- Red "Ideal for any business traveller who needs to be able to get around confidently." -- Sunday Business "Moving along at a relaxed, slow pace, punctuated by amusing anecdotes and jokes from the teacher, the new words, phrases and language rules are gently introduced and reinforced through subtle repetition without ever being tedious. In fact, despite a distinct emphasis on non-work, the course proves very effective and enjoyable, and its format is ideal for learning anywhere you like. So, if you only want to learn to speak the language, this course is highly recommended." -- Top Real Travel Product, Real Travel 20080601 "Excellent for learning ... This entirely audio course is easy to use and quickly results in some useful ability in the new language. Great for the car." -- Adventure Travel 20080601
