A few of us use Essential Russian Grammar; Brian Kemple; paperback; 105 pgs; Dover Publications; 1993.

I also have a box of Russian vocab cards, a box of Russian verb cards, and ePals via Skype.

Another text book to consider is Поехали! by Stanislav and Alla Chernyshova. Here it is on Ozon.ru http://www.ozon.ru/context/detail/id/5434701/ My girlfriend used to study with it, it's not bad.

As for the websites, there's a great Russian community at StackExchange, where you can ask any questions you might have, and be sure they'll be answered in a timely manner. The questions tend to be a little more advanced than you're probably looking for at this point, but you should't feel awkward about asking the basic stuff either. The link: http://russian.stackexchange.com/

I myself work on a project called Ruskie.info. It's not a coherent course yet, more of a useful blog with lessons, but I think I'm doing a decent job making Russian grammar a bit less boring. A good place to start is the lesson on grammar cases: http://ruskie.info/russian-cases/ Then you might want to check out this: http://ruskie.info/man-falls-out-a-train-runs-7-km-after-it/ If everything goes according to the plan, it will soon have daily video vocabulary lessons, too. Check the Ruskie forum here at Expat for news http://expat.ru/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=232

Another project that I work for is Ruspod.com, but this one requires payment. You can try it out for a week for free though, and there's a sideshow that always stays free: http://ruspod.com/shorts/

Hope this is helpful.

Hello, gruenchen!

Every man to his own taste.
I think you need to download books and to try.
For example on this site:
http://rutracker.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=2364
There is also textbooks from
"Russian Language Learning Pack"
which you may download too.

As a career professional of 7 years I recommend you this - "Жили-были. 28 уроков русского языка" by Миллер Л.В. и Политова Л.В. It's very useful for the beginners)

And visit my Russian language group on Facebook)
