Richard Robin, Golosa ("Voices"): A Basic Course in Russian Book One, 5th ed.

RUSSIAN 101 covers Units 6–10 of this same textbook-workbook package used in RUSSIAN 100. Golosa strikes a good balance between a rigorous treatment of grammar and a communicative approach. Grammar is learned in the context of authentic contemporary conversational and written texts, and the course is supported with ample audio and video resources.
