I love the app and for only four dollars, it's a good way to learn Russian phrases and study!
This app has been a useful companion with my (very) novice Russian language studies. I started with the alphabet and through frequent use in tandem with listening and speaking exercises, I’ve made encouraging progress. If you’re willing to put in the study work, this app will be everything you need to get started as a beginner. Very grateful to have it.
I just now discovered that, while I can listen to a phrase spoken more or less normally by tapping it, I can have it spoken slowly by pressing and holding. This is fantastic, and very helpful to me. And the pronunciations I’ve used so far are very clear and, as far as I can tell, accurate. I think I’m going to be relying on this high-quality app more in the near future.
This is pretty great for some of the basic words and phrases, especially if you’re going to travel. It has been coinciding with my Russian language class so I’ve been using it to study, but it definitely has its limitations. Regarding the flashcards (favorites), I really wish you had the ability to swipe them away when you get them correct or put them back into the rotation if you don’t. Instead you have to go through the whole stack and start over. You don’t get much repetition that way unless your pile is small. I don’t want to keep going in and selecting favorites because it takes time. A great review tool for learning, just wish it had more options.
Súper bien para aprender ruso ☺️
Very helpful and intuitive and understands how a beginner can best learn a language. And fast! LOVE THIS APP above all others except for PIMSLEUR.
