    bean Thank you. I ordered this simple one a few days ago. I am hoping it will give him something basic to work on so that he gets a sense of making progress. His interest in his Latin studies have grown now that he sees its benefit as he attempts to understand another language.

      Dd says her knowledge of Latin has been helpful with Russian Grammar.

Dorinda mentioned CLRC, and the book they use for first year Russian looks pretty straight forward: Beginner's Russian with Interactive Online Workbook: Kudyma, Anna, Miller, Frank, Kagan, Olga: 9780781812511: Amazon.com: Books

        The website that goes with it seems to be up and running, but I didn't sign up for an account to look at it more closely.
        This is also the book that is used at the University of Minnesota for 3 semesters of Russian, so you can use this for at least 2 years of high school Russian.

          Bean or Kristin,
          Do either of you know if this is a text that someone could pick up and work with on his own? Is the interactive workbook just workbook style or is their audio lessons?

            With Russian "on your own" is a relative term. :-) If you look at the Amazon sample , in the intro there is a website that lines up with the book. I don't know about answers, though, or if there is a teacher's edition.

              It is a workbook, where you can write answers in blanks, so it is user friendly. I would say it would help an individual work on the fundamental grammar and develop reading competency, but I don't think it would help get someone to speaking fluency without a teacher.

                Thank you both. I am going to order it and see how he gets along. He keeps asking if I have found a "good Russian grammar" book.
