Barron's popular Fast and Fun Way foreign language learning programs are designed primarily for travellers to foreign countries but are also suitable for instruction in classrooms and language labs. The book is filled with cheerful illustrations, word lists, pull-out vocabulary flash cards, a pull-out miniature dictionary, and language-learning exercises that take the form of games and puzzles. Emphasis is on the practical Russian that travellers will need when getting around in Moscow, St. Petersburg, or outlying villages. The program teaches appropriate words and phrases for greetings and introductions, finding one's way in cities, dining, shopping, getting hotel accommodations, telephoning, seeking medical help, reading road signs, and more. The 6 audio CDs offer valuable practice in Russian pronunciation, listening comprehension and basic conversational skills.
