Five Minutes: Podcast For Intermediate and Advanced Students Of Russian

Many students struggle to find appropriate content in their target language when they outgrow the beginner level. Russian is not an exception here. Most Russian podcasts for non-native speakers are focused on basic vocabulary and grammar rules, and are not very helpful for developing listening comprehension. Authentic audio books and radio shows initially addressed to native speakers can be very hard to understand because they are usually rich in cultural and textual references only insiders may catch. 

I designed the podcast to help Russian learners to improve their listening skills. I speak normal (not simplified) Russian, I try to keep normal tempo, so a listener can get accustomed to the average speed and sounds of the Russian speech, however, I don't exploit cultural references without explaining them.

In each episode I tell a short story about something related to living in Russia. Something that is quite obvious for Russians, but may be amusing for foreigners. I try to use quotations from popular songs and movies to illustrate my podcast, so listeners may learn more about the Russian culture and gain the necessary cultural background. 

By supporting this podcast you secure it as a unique source of learning materials for you and your fellow students of Russian.

Thank you very much for your support!

New Equipment

$450

Quality of sound is critically important when it comes to learning languages. I try to maintain high standards and use professional equipment for my podcast.

Recent thunderstorm left my recording studio devastated: lightning struck my roof and burnt my iMac, mixer and audio interface. I've bought a new computer and mixer, so that I can continue recorording without long delays, but I'm significantly over my budget. I'd like to keep publishing new podcasts weekly and keep it as good and helpful as possible, but I need your support to make it happen. 

I appreciate your help and hope you'll continue enjoying my podcast!

    My dear friends, I've been struggling with getting my equipment working. It took the official dealer three weeks to fix my Mac. Sorry for the delay. A new episode is on its way!
