Russian Radio!

A great way to train your ears for listening to Russian people speak is to listen to Russian radio stations. Luckily for you Russian learners, finding a Russian radio station is extremely easy when you have access to the Internet.

There are a lot of Russian radio stations out there, but you need to find one that you actually want to listen to. There’s no sense in listening to music that you don’t enjoy, just because you are learning Russian!

So, how do you find a radio station? Well, you can do a simple web search — or if you are a Google Chrome user, you can download the Radio extension (click here). It includes many other radio stations, but for Russian you want to check out the RU tab. They’ve got Nashe Radio, Radio Zvezda, Mayak Radio, Radio Shanson, and many more. If you are a Chrome user, this is definitely something to check out.

However, if that extension isn’t for you, there are plenty of alternatives. You can do a simple Google search for “Russian Radio Online” or “Радио Онлайн.” Or you can refer to my recommended stations below. They all have free streaming online.

Наше Радио 101,7fm
Радио Свобода (click on Сейчас в эфире)
Радио Маяк (click on Прямой эфир)
Юмор fm (click on Прямой эфир)
Радио Шансон
Радио Дача (click on Слушать Радио Дача Online)
Радио Эхо Москвы (click on Эфир)
Детское Радио (hover over Вещание click Интернет вещание)

So, start listening! Don’t feel compelled to force yourself to listen to those above. If you don’t like them, find one that you do enjoy. Some of them play English music every once in a while (or quite often).
