Yandex.ru has a bar that you can download, and one of the tools is a "word translator." If you don't know a word, you can hover your mouse pointer over a word to translate to and from Russian, not only English but also French, German, and Spanish (French into Russian, not French into, for example, German, unfortunately). Obviously, you'll need to know basic grammar rules for this tool to be of any use. In my opinion, it's a lot easier than having to flip through a dictionary every time you need to look up a word. It also has a spellchecker for both English and Russian, which of course is awesome.

Do you know where to get this book? I tried searching on amazon.com, but that site doesn't seem to like Cyrillic. ;)

I have started Russian will the Assimil method, the edition written by Dronov and Matchabelli containing 70 lessons. The first 21 lessons are great, and definitely get you started with this beautiful language. The audio I could find on the Internet is very nice, nothing to say about it. However, I've been very dispappointed by the rest of the book, the grammar explanations are messy, the vocabulary to learn in one lesson is too demanding and the fun disappears...

This week, I have bought the new edition, written by Melnikova-Suchet, which I believe to be much better. First, there are 100 lessons, so shorter than some insane lessons from the previous book. It's more up-to-date, more cultural notes on Russia, it's really great! It totally relaunched my interest in learning Russian, the drawback is I haven't found the audio for this edition neither in the Internet nor in libraries.


I am finishing the edition by Dronov and Matchabelli containing 70 lessons (Assimil: Le nouveau Russe sans peine). This book is really terrible because, as Fanch3 as stated, the grammatical explaination are messy and imcompletes, the steep between lessons are to big, there's not enough repetition of the word to really memorize and assimilate them abd when you reach the active phase, it really take more than 30 minutes to underdstand and assimilate the dialogue. For me, a lesson a day was too much, i do about 3-4 lessons per week. If you use that edition, I recommand to use an other ressource conjointly with it. The only good thing about that book is the enermous amouth of vocabulary you will learn will doind it. I guest one can study actively this book for 6-9 months to really get everythings from it.
