After listening to just four lessons, I just can't wait and have to give this program a five-star. The lessons are very well organized, with interesting and practical materials in each lesson. Also, the lessons are very lively, fun, and easily-comprehensible. This is an excellent program for elementary Russian learners. Listeners would have learned quite a bit about Russian just by listening to these twelve lessons. Even though there are only twelve lessons in this series so far. The future of "A Spoonful of Russian" looks very promising!
