I think the Michel Thomas CD one is a very good and rapid way of getting started with spoken Russian. It is satisfying right from the start as, within 15 minutes you are will be asking and telling if a building is a station or a theatre and if they are (or are not) far away. Within half an hour you are shopping for tickets and souvenirs, ordering tea or coffee - all in the present tense. Use of the future 'I will..' follows.
I've not really followed it much beyond that as I have other methods 'indoors'
Best done in regular 10-15 minute chunks.
Not very moto orientated, but certainly satisfyingly fast and the girl tutor sounds awesome!
Don't get the 2 disc Introduction Course as it is repeated on the 8 CD/hour Foundation Course.
On UK Ebay at about half the regular shop price.
Transfer them to i-Pod, Mini-Disc or Cassette for train journeys!
Last time a similar thread came up Chris Scott said he also preferred it - What an endorsement. That is a guy who knows a thing or two about travel and communicating!
