"Real" Russian podcasts
7 great Russian podcasts you should listen to: from music to politics

Name: Arzamas
Topic: The History of Culture

"Arzamas is one of the most exciting projects to come out of Russia in recent years. They produce series’ of short lectures read by renowned Russian experts in the history of culture. Episodes are around 15-25 minutes in length, and they usually come in sets of five about any given topic. Recent episodes tackled ancient Greek and Roman understandings of sexuality, Russian avant-garde literature, and the major philosophical debates of the 20th century. Supplementary materials to each podcast can be found on the website.


Name: Чтение
Topic: Literature

Four days a week, the good people over at Radio Mayak produce recordings of short stories by Russian and international authors. If you haven’t been able to find the time lately to brush up on your Nabokov or Solzhenitsyn, why not give their audio versions a try? If you’re not ready to tackle Russian literature yet, you can always listen to your favourite short stories from authors like Kurt Vonnegut and Stephen King translated into Russian. Readings range from 10 minutes to one hour and are followed by a short commentary about the author and their work."

The Princeton Russian Course is still available online:
http://cytrussian.tuxfamily.org/

I think i still have the original files saved on my computer somewhere. That course is really great, fun dialogs, good work on accent, simple grammar explanations. If i were going to start Russian again i'd start with that and Assimil's "Russian Without Toil".

Some people could be interested in: Russian Portal (a blog which lists online ressources to learn russian, a few links are dead, others are still working like the Cornell Uni course that seems well made) and the Pushkin Institute who offers online lessons for all, you just have to register (it's too "school-orientated" for me).
Also the Where to get Russian media with English subs easily? thread
For Luntik, see here (other transcripts: 1st message of my log)

The original books are published by Yale, but you don't really need the books to use the material on the sites.

How many words do you know?

"Test your receptive and productive vocabulary in different languages.

The vocabulary tests aim to assess participants' vocabulary knowledge on levels of 1000 words each. These levels are based on high-frequency vocabulary lists. The 5000 most frequent words of German, English, Spanish, Russian, Italian, French, Japanese, Chinese, and American English can be tested. The results indicate the corresponding reading levels of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).

What percentage of the 5000 most frequent words have you mastered?"

http://www.itt-leipzig.de/static/startseiteeng.html

Test your vocab
http://testyourvocab.com

myvocab.info
The test is designed using Item Response Theory (one-parameter model) and Computerized Adaptive Testing. Bayesian Expected A Posteriori (EAP) estimator is used on each step of the test. Joint Maximum Likelihood is used to calculate difficulties of the test items.
