FSI Russian is a course used and created by the Foreign Service Institute (USA) to teach students and diplomats the Russian language basis before their trip in the URSS. This course is now freely available as paper scanned courses and mp3 audio files. You'll find the original documents and audio here:
You'll find here this course as a new pdf document, completely remade. I ocred this course and format it using the docbook tools. This format may help to extract the words/phrases and to produce it in different other formats (epub, pdf, doc, text, html). I just added the epub and xhtml formats.
Here are the pdf, epub and xhtml document. If you find some mistakes or errors, feel free to contact me. The document in Docbook format will be published very soon after some improvements. News 5/05/2011: all documents are now in stressed version.

I'm working on the audio part. As soon as I'll be finished with it, it will be available here as separate files for every word/phrase. So, it would be possible to use this material with Shtooka-repeat or Anki.
