This course book is aimed primarily at students in higher education who have some prior knowledge of Russian. It is dividen into 64 lessons covering all the main areas of Russian grammar, including the declension of nouns; the conjugation of verbs, the use of cases, the forms and use of adjectives; pronouns, numerals and verbs of motion; verbal prefixes; gerunds and participles.

Yeah this is a grammar book but this is the best grammar I have ever used. There are tons of great examples, tricky concepts are explained well, and it just easy to use. I really wish I could find grammars like this for other languages. Read full review
