Comprehensive Russian Grammar Drills in Audio

Postby Cantab » Sun May 08, 2022 8:08 pm

Hi Everyone!

Does anyone know of a comprehensive drill-based Russian grammar resource that includes audio?

I used FSI Basic French with great success in the past but, as far as I am aware, there is no FSI Basic Russian. The best drills-based resource I have so far found for Russian is Russian in Exercises by Khavronia and Shirochenskaya, but there is no accompanying audio. If Russian in Exercises had audio for repetitive listening, it would be perfect. Any suggestions?

Many thanks.

Modern Russian 1 and 2 by Clayton Dawson is an extremely comprehensive FSI-style Russian audio-lingual course (I can't remember how many hours of audio, but if I recall correctly it was about 50 hours!). It's a beast, but well regarded by those who love drills.

The audio is available freely on the University of Indiana CELT archive:

https://celt.indiana.edu/portal/Russian/b09.html

You can get the textbooks on Amazon reasonably cheaply.
