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 102-17 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:
