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:
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.
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.
To gain the fluency in Russian, you need to consistantly engage in 4 activities: reading, writing, listening and speaking.
Use any opportunity to practice Russian, and soon you will see that Russian is not as hard to learn as they say. :)
Happy learning! :)
