Computer-Assisted Language Learning Software

The software listed here was developed at the University of Minnesota and is freely available. THESE ARE VERY OLD PROGRAMS AND ARE NO LONGER SUPPORTED. The programs require a PC platform for operation. "Russian Conjugation and Declension" runs under DOS 3.3 or later. "Sentences" runs under MS Windows 3.0 or later. These programs are stored here in compressed form. After downloading to your machine, these files will need to be uncompressed. The "Sentences" programs need to be stored in directories immediately off the root directory of your machine, e.g., as c:\lesson.01\.  More up-to-date programs are located here (to accompany textbook Russian for Everybody) and here (to accompany textbook (Nachalo).
General Information on these programs (computer.htm)
