Category Archives: Huliganov's Russian Course

This contains the whole Huliganov Russian Course, from the beginning at the bottom to the end at the top, in order. This is intended to help people who have difficulty finding the parts they need on YouTube.

But you are advised to “click through” into the Youtube environment to watch, as there are comments on there by viewers, questions and answers, and sometimes errors spotted in these films by viewers, so that the complete experience of the course is actually on YouTube itself, by design. This is simply a simplified way of navigating it. If you wish to join the discussion either here or on there it is equally welcome – here the discussion will thread, there it will not, but what you write will probably be seen by more people.

RL 102-18 Locative Case prepositions – Part Two


Original YT playout date: 24 November 2008
Duration: 21:00

This is part two of two parts that the 18th lesson comes in. You may be surprised not to get much actual Russian in the first half – but more talk around the way prepositions work in Russian, but I believe it will help you if you take in what is being said here – more than that, you won’t get your head around Russian unless and until you get some of the ideas I’m talking about here. In the second half, which will be in a day or so for those following real time, we cover two locative case prepositions, a joke and a song.

General Introduction to Huliganov’s Russian Course


 

Original YT playout date: 20 September 2008
Duration: 27:10

“This is the introduction to the whole Russian course, which I didn’t do at the start as I never knew it would take off as it has done. I’ve added annotations to get people started to various start points in the course and the goldlist system, and to enlarge on the points raised.

The Facebook group by Lafeen Maggio has the URL:

The google group has the URL
http://groups.google.com/group/huliganov?pli=1

http://astore.amazon.com/wwwusenetposc-20 is the Amazon affiliates store containing my recommendations. If you buy there, it may not be the cheapest for you, I don’t need the 4% I get, but I will use it for competition prizes in the channel. You can see what is available there, and then buy it somewhere cheaper if you like. If I ever need your money, believe me, I’ll say so.

What I do need, on the other hand, from loyal viewers are the following things:

1. Please subscribe to the channel
2. Please give me hits
3. Please give me good ratings
4. Do write comments, including the correction of errors, answers to other contributors questions, not necessarily only praise for the videos, which is nice but discussion is even better!
5. Please support the other kinds of video on the channel – at least give the radio shows and the travel vids a try.
6. Please add the vids to your playlists and favorites
7. Please tell all your friends about the course – don’t keep it under your furry hat!
8. If you want me to address your college or society or do a guest lecture, then the expenses must be covered by you ahead of time. Let me know if you want me to speak and what the topic, duration and the audience will be.
9. Please understand that I am unlikely to have the time to pursue much by way of personal correspondence, and that questions asked in email, unless specifically marked private, will be assumed to be “”mailbag”” which I can read out and answer on air in future videos.
10. Please note that all films are embed enabled – you can use them in other sites not-for-profit, but you have to keep them in full, and not take the credit. They should link back here.

And finally, please consider one of the donation buttons on the site, such as the regular giving one below or the one-off paypal one at the sides, if you feel you had value from the course.

Many thanks and happy learning!” Read the rest of this entry

RL 102-17 Russian Basic Grammar #17/1


Original YT playout date: 16 August 2008
Duration: 22:52

This is what you’ve told me you wanted. At long last Huliganov responds to the demands, requests, threats and indecent proposals and produces the 17th lesson. It’s in 2 parts. The second part is very nearly ready, but just to keep the play out pattern going it’ll be three videos down the list. Ie, probably tomorrow, for those listening the first day this is up!

I introduce a whole new way of tackling the tricky area of prepositions in Russian. You’re gonna love this…

OK. The image promised is up on the facebook group. Please join the following:

RL102 – 12 Basic Russian Grammar Lesson 12


Original playout date: 11 November 2007
Duration: 12:56

Impersonal dative constructions using datives are being looked at again here, and the key to understanding is that temporary states tend to be impersonal dative constructions, more permanent ones are personal with the person who is in the state being the subject of the verb.

RL 102-11 Basic Russian Grammar lesson 11


Original playout date: 24 October 2007
Duration: 12:48

We continue with Dative constructions, used much more in Russian than in Western European languages. Everyone in the room, says Huli, gets kicked into the dative case and nobody is the subject of the sentence, therefore they are impersonal, and in Russian that’s much more idiomatic.
