How to learn Russian on your own

Learning Russian language (as any other) requires conscious effort and motivation. We built this and other sites to help you learn Russian by providing useful and easy to study lessons.

Here is a road map of 4 simple steps to fluency in Russian:

1. Start with the Russian alphabet

Learning Russian alphabet might take you some time as it uses Cyrillic letters many of which are unfamiliar to English speakers. We dedicated 3 lessons of this course to learning Russian letters only. Alternatively, you can visit another site of ours that is dedicated entirely to the Russian alphabet and will provide you with pronunciation tips, examples with audio to practice and quizzes.

2. Study Russian grammar

After you mastered the Cyrillic alphabet, move on to the Russian grammar. On our site, we have covered the most of the basic grammar rules and we keep adding new lessons from time to time.

3. Grow your Russian vocabulary

It is recommended to learn a few words every day to quickly grow your vocabulary. Our vocabulary lessons will provide you with the basic words and phrases, but you should not stop there. Subscribe to our Russian Word of the Day series to be able to grow your vocabululary and pratice daily with flashcards and the lesson of the day.

4. Practice, practice, practice

To gain the fluency in Russian, you need to consistantly engage in 4 activities: reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Find Russian books for beginners and read in Russian as often as you can. Find a Russian pen pal for language exchange. Listen to Russian speech, for example, a Russian podcast.

Use any opportunity to practice Russian, and soon you will see that Russian is not as hard to learn as they say. :)

Happy learning! :)
