ONLy 90 DAYS From Frustration to Confidence in Your Russian!

Russian Morning 


A comprehensive audio course  

for Advanced learners 

in practical everyday Russian

Understanding spoken Russian can be overwhelming

  • I live in Russia now and hoped that I’d pick up Russian pretty quickly. But immersion environment didn’t work so well.
  • I have a hard time memorizing Russian words. Are there any apps or methods to help with that?
  • I’m constantly doing something to learn Russian but can’t even keep up with casual conversation even after years of studying! It’s frustrating!
  • I can’t keep up with Russians when they talk. I’m still translating in my head, and they are five sentences ahead of me. This “machine gun Russian” is overwhelming!

Listening comprehension is the hardest skill to learn

If you are NOT building this skill in the right way, it can be very challenging  - even after years of  study. 

LACK OF VOCABULARY, pronunciation rules make it difficult to recognize familiar words when they are spoken, plus two more reasons why listening comprehension is so hard.

fast connected speech

When words are closely connected:

  • Several words may appear as one
  • Small words may hide between long ones 
  • Some words deteriorate so much that you can’t recognize them (“щас”, “тыща”, “пийсят”)
The TRANSLATIon trap

When you're trying to translate in your head every word that you hear, it slows down your processing and overwhelms you, and as a result -  discourages you from participating in the conversations.

Why free resources won't help you much in understanding spoken Russian

If you're trying to work on your listening comprehension skills on your own, you're may be saving some money but definitely wasting a lot of time.  Here is why.

YouTube channels and courses
You won't find any free online Russian language resources  that focus on systematic development of listening skills for Intermediate and higher levels.
Language exchange partner

Native speakers are rarely able to clearly explain vocabulary & grammar. Sessions don't have a system and don't last long. But this can supplement a study program. 

Movies with Russian subtitles 

This may work as a listening development tool but only if it’s used in a very specific way because our brain can't focus on two tasks at the same time and always choose the easiest one.  If it has a choice of reading Russian subtitles or listening to the fast speech, guess what it will do?  It will read subtitles instead of listening. 

THE BOTTOM LINE: the vast majority of language learners who reach higher levels of proficiency in Russian are those who seek out professional help. If you’re looking for more efficient use of your time, it’s always better to invest in your education.
