Mango Languages just launched their online language learning product in beta. They’re offering 11 free languages courses – including Russian! Each course is comprised of 100 lessons, presented in a PowerPoint-style sideshow providing the written form of the words along with the spoken dialog. The focus is on learning short, conversational sentences.
Even though we’ve fallen way out of practice since our classroom-based Russian language primer course at U.T.P.B., I was surprised at how much of this seemed familiar. As we begin to prep for our first trip to Cheboksary, maybe the combination of the Mango online lessons and the Pimsleur audiobook courses will help to ease some of the language barrier.
