Reviews - What do customers think about Russian in 60 Minutes (Berlitz in 60 Minutes)?
"Where's the toilet?" Apr 19, 2010
I bought this because I'm going to Russia (as a two-weeks tourist) and because it was the cheapest "language learner" going at the time I was shopping for one. It's okay, more than I really need, but I can't help thinking that, if I did want more, this wouldn't be the one I'd choose. Of course, I don't know what else is out there, so I can't judge.
The CD has 11 tracks covering basic expressions (please, thank you, hello, etc.); questions (where, when, how, etc); numbers; colors; restaurants; hotels; directions; etc. etc. etc.
The presentation is very deliberate. Each phrase is given in English, then in uninterrupted Russian, then broken down into Russian pronunciation parts, then given in uninterrupted Russian again, with pauses between each segment so that the listener/learner can practice the phrase as he/she hears it. And there's an accompanying booklet showing each phrase both phonetically and in Cyrillic.
BUT THEY'VE OMITTED ANYTHING TO DO WITH WATER: WCs, BATHROOMS, WASH-UP FACILITIES, EVEN BOTTLES OF. Need I say more?
