Short of having a translator it is not easy to go to any place that speaks Russian and communicate effectively. It's just not an easy language to pick up just for a trip. But for a tough language the guide does a good job.

The dictionary has lots of common and handy travel phrases. And if you work at it people will understand you. But even when they try to tell you how to pronounce a word or phrase you are always a ways off because the sounds of Russian are so different. Could any book do better? Can't say.

Best bet nowadays for Russian or any really tough languages is the iPhone app that just says it for you. Kind of impersonal if you literally let it do the talking, but if you don't at least you can hear how it should sound (or closer than your guess). Some other speaking translator gadget also would be a good option. Were we to travel again that would be my choice.

Of all the books I own on the Russian language, this one is the one I've been using the most. Of the people I speak to when I use my knowledge of Russian, this book gives me the correct forms of the words where others were wrong, leading me to be corrected by my neighborhood "comrades". While other books I own are missing something that I need, this one covers just about everything. If you want to look up an english word for the Russian equivalent, you go to the great two-way dictionary in the back, and what's better, if you hear a word you DON'T know in conversation, and you nodded and faked it...you can go look up the word written in Russian using the easily understood English phonetics, and see what the word means. A great buy at amazon.com for the person who wants to learn Russian, for whatever level you are at, or aspire to reach. If you are only going to purchase one book, make it this one. I HIGHLY recommend it.

Numbers, grammar, polite phrases, telling time, and the small dictionary are fine.

At Christmas dinner, the phrases caused four women from Moscow or St. Petersburg to dissolve into tears as they laughed while reading selections from the book to each other. Odd word choices combined with an eccentric selection of phrases were the problem. Mind you, the Russian was fine, but starting with "Let's have a drink!" and ending the page with "I'm going to be sick." and "I'm hungover." was perhaps too much on the topic.

Have fun on your trip to Russia.

Great Product and Price! Was VERY helpful for basic conversation while I was in Russia, including some "slang" used during casual talk. FAST Shipping!!!

If you just want to learn basic Russian, enough to get you through without looking like a total ignoramous, then this is for you. It has useful phrases along with sounding the words out for you. It is categorized nicely into situations with colored binding. A very helpful little (pocket sized) book.

This book sounds like a great book. However, if you already know a little Russian, you will realize that a lot of the phonetic pronunciations are inaccurate. There are many instances where 'd' and 't' sounds are written wrong. Also the very common Russian sound 'ye' is often written as only 'e'.

While most Russians are accomodating and will try to understand what you are saying, you may as well get a book that at least attempts to give you the proper pronunciation of words.

Also included in this book is a section on Russian curse words. I'm not sure why anyone would need to know them but if you do, maybe you will like this book.
I bought this book for my brother, a college student who was going to St. Petersburg. He says that the book was great for his trip. I also liked the size of the book, small enough to fit into a pocket, and the sturdy binding. I also appreciated the fact that it had some "younger" russian in it for someone of his age.
