An acquaintance just started learning Russian and is looking for good online resources. Do you know of any? Here is a short list of resources that I recommend for beginners…
Where to start
Useful YouTube videos
Just for fun
Russian-English cognates (words that are the same in both languages)
Online programs for beginners
Learn Russian from Russia Today. I think these lessons are quite well-organized.
Между нами, “a free, web-based textbook that provides a comprehensive introduction to Russian language and culture.”
News in Slow Russian (use level 1)
When I started Street Russian, it seemed like that there were tons of resources for Russian beginners but not much available for intermediate (and higher) learners. *Cue Free resources for Intermediate – Advanced Students of Russian.* But now I’m wondering… are there people reading my posts who are just starting to learn Russian? Would you like me to write about more beginner-level topics? I would be very grateful if you can take a minute to answer the 3 short questions in this survey!
Thank you! And again, if you have any good resources for beginners, please leave a link in the comment below. 🙂
