And LOL - he is certainly NOT British!! :lol: He sounds very American, but has a pleasant, non-nasal accent. I'm from the UK so I should know!

To me, monotone is infinitely preferable to the excitable English TV newsreader type audio featured in the free online lessons. This is definitely not normal english conversation. How am I to know if the Russian I'm listening to is similarly unnatural?


I totally agree. I could only listen to one or two of these podcasts without getting annoyed. I can understand that it might be amusing to speak like this every now and again, but if it's through the whole thing, podcast after podcast, I wouldn't pay for it – you should be able to focus on the lesson without getting irritated. I doubt he speaks like this constantly in real life lol.
