I admit it: I'm not going to finish this one. Self-study is difficult when learning languages, and for me it has to fit decently into my commuting or other spare time. I have not found it possible to sit down and do the written exercises from this book, and there is no audio component which means I lose the pull effect of the MP3 player summoning you to play the next section.

I think it is not a bad course. It alerted me to a number of tricky exceptions to the general rules which my previous textbook had rather glossed over (eg the irregular prepositional в Крыму, "in the Crimea"). But I would have neede regular human lessons as well to get me through to the end, so I'm leaving it here, and switching to a quite different Indo-European language. I will come back to Russian again, and am glad I've made a start, but that's it for now.

Which reminds me to mention regarding your plans to improve your Irish - BBC Northern Ireland have made a lot of their Irish language programmes available online, including a great deal of learning resources. http://www.bbc.co.uk/irish/features/8/gaeilge/
