    I liked the app before, and I like it even more now that it’s had an update. The flash cards in particular will be a great help with my learning.

    This app is very useful for taking first steps to learning Russian at your own pace. Having a native speaker to pronounce words and letters is a must and really helps. A good choice.
  • Russian on the go!

    Great way to learn the basics
  • Love!

    By Lotusflowerz
    I absolutely love this app, it's consistent and has excellent features. The addition of the alphabet is welcome. My Russian teacher often compliments me on my pronunciation and I think it's because I use this app in my spare moments. What I would love to see is is perhaps an indication of where the stress of a word is (I have phonetics turned off otherwise my mind sadly ignores the Russian letters), perhaps also it would be nice to have folders for saved words instead of a long list. But never-the-less it's a great app and well worth buying the word bundles, fantastic to have this resource offline too.
  • Excellent

    Compliments my learning of Russian so well, I can practice speaking and reading anywhere when I have a few minutes to spare.
  • Speakeasy Russian

    By Red Colobus
    The app is easy to use, for a beginner, and the speech is really clear even when slowed down (which is a function o find very helpful). It would improve the app if there were also an alphabet as a simple tool with phonetic and audio facility.
