Where do you find the best Russian Lessons? In Russia, of course. So it follows that the best way to learn Russian is to go live in Russia or a country which predominantly speaks that language. That would apply to any other language for that matter. Unfortunately, it may not be practical for everyone to go to Russia to learn Russian.
I am one of those who would love to go to Russia, and not just for the sake of learning Russian, however it was not possible for me. Thus, for the past many years I have been studying Russian, with the help of the internet, mp3 players, electronic dictionaries, Russian books and many online Russian friends. I certainly would not pass off as a Russian spy or a native Russian speaker, but am happy with the progress I've made.
You too can learn Russian without going to Russia, and I will share with you all the secrets to learning the Russian Language for 'free' on this website, myrussianteacher.org. *Free but you still have to commit yourself to studying the Russian Language. Depending on your goal, you may need as little as a couple of hours to master the basics of Russian, or a couple of years to mastering the Russian Language.
I believe you too can benefit from my struggles and experience with mastering this difficult language. This is really a first hand experience of someone who started out knowing nothing about the language and now am confident enough to share it. (Best way to learn anything is to share it and teach it).
You may already know some Russian and are hoping to improve it, which I'm sure you will with the lessons on this website. But do remember that how far and how much you gain out of these lessons very much depends on how much effort you put into them. Learning Russian may not be easy, but it can be FUN!
If however, you need some professional Russian translation before you are able to do it yourself, you may like to check out the russian translation service to help you translate any documents.
So if you are ready, lets proceed to Первый Урок or Lesson 1.
All these lessons are free and have been adapted from many useful resources. The main source, of course is from Professor Dr. David Freedel's excellent course materials which were available for download from Princeton University a couple of years ago. I have attempted to put them all into an easily available and sensible format. There will be more than enough examples and practice exercises. All exercises will have full answers to them, thus providing you with the necessary resource to do your own self study.
(NB. This course seems to have some problem on Google Chrome, but works well with Internet Explorer and Firefox.)
