I just finished up my first semester of Russian. I was wandering if anyone could reccomend any online and or audio program to help speed up my progress in the Russian Language.

BTW, My goal is to have a rudimentary proficiency that would allow me to hold a generic conversation. While I jbow its important I am not all that interested in drilling grammar.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Michael L.

This will probably bit a bit daunting after only one semester (and I've yet to encounter any decent Russian programs at universities), but the speech is very slow and you should be able to pick out words you know and start building your vocabulary.  http://www.tasteofrussian.com/

And sorry - you absolutely have to do grammar drills if you are studying Russian.  People will really have to struggle to understand you if you butcher cases.  People simply won't understand you if you don't know verbs of motional flawlessly.  And when you talk to people in the former USSR, word order can sometimes be erratic so that you have to understand cases well in order to understand everyday speech. For grammar I'd recommend anything by Derek Offord. 

Of course the absolute best way to learn Russian is to go somewhere where Russian is spoken, pick a random place and take an elektrichka or platzkart there.
