Materials are appropriate for self study and trainging while practicing listening comprehension and pronunciation and can be used both in audio and in audio-video mode. They do not involve preliminary knowledge of language and this is why each word comes with an English translation and transliteration into Latin script. It also includes interesting language games for practicing vocabulary and writing the words in Cyrillic. In the left-side column of this site one can find a good systematic list of some grammatical and lexical topics, which makes this resource more user-friendly.
