I think this is probably what DaraghM was referring to:

This is exactly what I was referring to. It's an FSI style course for Russian which has tons of audio material. However, the language is slightly outdated.

E.g. в ГУМе - At the GUM

I also like Pimsleur and Assimil, but I am just a beginner and I do not have much experience with language learning yet. The Pimsleur is teaching me to pronounce words properly, and the Assimil is teaching me how to converse.

I am interested in Fluenz, but so much of their site seems like marketing fluff that is designed to impress kids... There is also a suspicious amount of positive reviews from people with no other review history, and it just appears to me as if they are company shills. I think I will make up my mind on that one once a few people who are long time members of this forum have reviewed it.

When people list their favorite language programs, it would be a lot more useful and meaningful if they also would list the language they studied with that program. It appears that some courses do very well in some languages but poorly in others. It would also be useful to mention which actual courses, such as Introductory, Advanced, etc. Thanks in advance.

These is a list from good to bad of stuff I used in the last year

- Michel Thomas Russian
- Assimil French without Toil (1940)
- Assimil Russe sans peine
- Teach Yourself Korean (only drawback is that only dialogue is in hangul, the rest in
old Mc-R)
- Michel Thomas French
- Teach Yourself Xhosa... basically the only reasonable book for this language readily
available. Big drawback is the audio, which sucks... practice pronunciation on Youtube
instead be my advice...
