Here I put some resources I use to improve my Russian. If you want to check information about other languages or about linguistics in general, check out this page

ISBN Title Description
978-0884003502 Dictionary of Advanced Russian Usage: A Guide to Idiom, Colloquialisms, Slang and More Lots of concrete translation examples for expressions you do not find even in the Oxford Russian dictionary.
978-0198614203 Oxford Russian Dictionary There are very few decent Russian dictionaries out there and this is the best I have been able to come up with for the English-Russian pair.
978-1138960725 Russian for all Occasions A Russian English collocation dictionary! Finally we get one for Russian.
978-2266037051 Communiquez en russe This remarkable little book for French speakers has a lot of useful Russian expressions. Unfortunately, the book is out of print.
978-4051-3639-6 A Comprehensive Russian Grammar One of the best Russian grammars I have seen for English speakers.

Here you have some Youtube channels I listen to:

  • Irina Shikhman
  • This is an independent journalist. The channel's name is А поговорить?

  • PostNauka
  • About science in general, all kinds of stuff but with some focus on neurology.

  • Dud
  • Russian journalist of Ukrainian origin, Dud interviews all kinds of people. I find some interviews more interesting than others.

    And here you have some rather independent media:

  • Novaja Gazeta
  • This is a fairly known Russian newspaper, good when comprehension levels are already high.
  • Meduza
  • Russian news, independent and because of that in exile in Latvia.

    My own little list of some Russian verbs with Spanish translations (good for someone with B2 level).
    I am not responsible for the content of the links I list here.
