Arie Helderman One of the older programs out there to learn a new language is Assimil. At the time it was a very disruptive approach to how languages were learned in schools. But is it still relevant this day and age? Assimil Russian review As said in the introduction, the program is almost 90 years old.
At first it was only available from French to Russian, but these days there is an English course as well. The program features lessons. In these you focus on simply reading, listening and taking in information. The second half is active. That is where you will be actively translating sentences so that you can increase your vocabulary and understand more of the Russian language.
In addition, you can still do some passive lessons in order to keep the listening and reading part going. Learn Russian with Assimil! Every word you have to learn from scratch. What Assimil does right is that it presents you with a large vocabulary. At the end of the course you will have learnt somewhere between and words.
Just do 1 lessons per day. Now, you can take a rest on the weekend to let it sink in a bit more and to start fresh the next Monday. But if you just follow 1 lesson per day you will finish the course in 3 to 4 months. Every lesson is somewhere from 30 to 60 minutes, and everyone who is serious about learning Russian can make this time for it.
I also love lessons in book form. There is something very appealing about having a little book with you at times that you can scrabble in and do small exercises. Assimil has both. And the audio you can plug in your phone and also listen to it on the go. Audio is by far the best way to learn how to pronunciation correctly. It might not be the most flashy and fast method, but if you like to take things at a quiet effective pace, then Assimil will provide the right course for you.
There even is some cultural information sprinkled throughout the program. So see if you identify with one of the following types of people: Complete beginners who want to ease into learning Russian — the program might feel a bit outdated at times, but its slow-but effective pace will teach you all the essentials you need to get started with the Russian language. That is nonsense. The strategies are based on old principles and that means that you can learn Russian with it. I mainly recommend it for beginners who are looking to get a good introduction to the language.
