    What you can expect from this book:This Russian learning resource is a combination of Russian vocabulary book and a two-way basic Russian dictionary:Part 1 - Topic based Russian vocabulary book: This is the main part of the book and represents a list of chapters each containing Russian vocabularies for a certain topic. The Russian vocabularies in the chapters are unsorted on purpose to separate remembering them from a defined alphabetical order. You can start at any chapter and dive directly into the topics that interest you the most.Part 2 - Basic English-Russian dictionary: The index in the second half of the book can be used as a basic Russian dictionary to look up words you have learned but can't remember or learn new words you need.Part 3 - Basic Russian-English dictionary: Easy to use and with just the right amount of words, this third part finishes off with a second index that allows you to look for Russian words and directly find the English translation
     
    How to use this Russian vocabulary book:Not sure where to start? We suggest you first work your way through the verbs, adjectives and phrases chapters in part one of the book. This will give you a great base for further studying and already enough vocabulary for basic communication. The Russian dictionaries in part two and three can be used whenever needed to look up words you hear on the street, English words you want to know the Russian translation for or simply to learn some new words.
     
    Some final thoughts:Vocabulary books have been around for centuries and as with so many things that have been around for some time, they are not very fashionable and a bit boring, but they usually work very well. Together with the basic Russian dictionary parts, this vocabulary book is a great resource to support you throughout the process of learning Russian and comes in particularly handy at times when there is no internet to look up words and phrases.

    Passwords to Paradise - How...

    "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." 
       
    So opens the Gospel of John, an ancient text translated into almost every language, at once a compelling and beguiling metaphor for the Christian story of the Beginning. To further complicate matters, the words we read now are in any number of languages that would have been unknown or unrecognizable at the time of their composition. The gospel may have been originally dictated or written in Aramaic, but our only written source for the story is in Greek. Today, as your average American reader of the New Testament picks up his or her Bible off the shelf, the phrase as it appears has been translated from various linguistic intermediaries before its current manifestation in modern English. How to understand these words then, when so many other translators, languages, and cultures have exercised some level of influence on them? 
     
    Christian tradition is not unique in facing this problem. All religions--if they have global aspirations--have to change in order to spread their influence, and often language has been the most powerful agent thereof. Passwords to Paradise explores the effects that language difference and language conversion have wrought on the world's great faiths, spanning more than two thousand years. It is an original and intriguing perspective on the history of religion by a master linguistic historian.

    A curated Greek word frequency listAre you looking for unconventional ways to speed up the process of learning Greek? Then this book is exactly what you are looking for. Following the Pareto principle (80/20 rule), this book is built to streamline the learning process by concentrating on the core words and sentence structures that make up everyday conversations. The result is a unique vocabulary book with 2000 of the most important Greek words and phrases ordered by their frequency of use.
     
    Who this Greek learning book is for:This book is for beginners and intermediate learners of Greek who are self-motivated and willing to spend 15 to 20 minutes a day on learning vocabularies. The simple structure of this vocabulary book is the result of taking all unnecessary things out allowing the learning effort to solely be spent on the parts that help you make the biggest progress in the shortest amount of time. If you are willing to put in 20 minutes of learning every day, this book is very likely the single best investment you can make if you are at a beginner or intermediate level. You will be amazed at the speed of progress within a matter of just weeks of daily practice.
     
    Who this Greek frequency list is not for:This book is not for you if you are an advanced learner of Greek. In this case, please go to our website or search for our Greek vocabulary book which comes with more vocabularies and is grouped by topic which is ideal for advanced learners who want to improve their language capabilities in certain fields.Furthermore, if you are looking for an all in one Greek learning book that guides you through the various steps of learning Greek, this book is most likely also not what you are looking for. This book contains vocabularies only and we expect buyers to learn things like grammar and pronunciation either from other sources or through language courses. The strength of this book is its focus on quick acquisition of core vocabularies which comes at the expense of information many people might expect in a conventional language learning book. Please be aware of this when making the purchase.
     
    How to use this Greek workbook:This book is ideally used on a daily basis, reviewing a set number of pages in each session. The book is split into sections of 50 vocabularies which allows you to step by step progress through the book. Let’s for example say you are currently reviewing vocabularies 101 to 200. Once you know vocabularies 101 to 150 very well, you can start learning vocabularies 201 to 250 and on the next day skip 101-150 and continue reviewing vocabularies 151 to 250. This way, step by step, you will work your way through the book and your language skills will jump with each page you master.
     
    Some final thoughts:Like many language hacking methods, this book is quite unconventional in its approach, but for a driven person that uses it correctly it can significantly speed up the learning process. Vocabulary books have been around for centuries and as with so many things that have been around for some time, they are not very fashionable and a bit boring, but they usually work quite well – and that is what counts in the end.
