Now I know a little Russian, being the fact that my language's modern vocabulary is completely Russian. (Samaliot for airplane and Televizor for TV and such) I'm from Uzbekistan and one day I go back to my country I must learn Russian in order to be successful in buisness and such. However, I am almost at zero right now, I have zero Russian grammar and very little vocabulary. I was wondering what is the best way to learn for a beginner in a non-Russian speaking environment. I am tired of those "learn another language in 24 hours while reading this everyday for 12 minutes while driving back from work" books. I need something that is actually useful, and I do not need 100% pronunciation, I just want to be able to communicate well. My language is written in Cyrillic, so the writing system is not a big problem. Thanks.
