A great companion for international travelers, the new edition of this handy language-teaching package combines the pocket-size bilingual Russian At a Glance phrasebook with two audio compact discs that present simplified dialogues in Russian. The phrasebook holds more than 1500 expressions that travelers need for making themselves understood in hotels, airports, train stations, restaurants, and other places they're likely to visit. The book also contains an additional 2,000-word bilingual dictionary, plus travel tips, driving tips, simplified maps of major Russian cities, and more. The audio CDs, which replace the cassette tapes in earlier editions, familiarize travelers with often-needed phrases, and also provide help with language pronunciation and listening comprehension. Barron's publishes Now You're Talking! language packages in five different languages.
