    Votre méthode d’apprentissage est d’un haut niveau pédagogique. Les leçons sont idéalement graduées assimiler méthodiquement les éléments de base de la grammaire et de la syntaxe des phrases. Tous les aspects de la grammaire sont abordés. L’accent tonique, noté sur tous les éléments du texte russe, associé à la partie audio constitue un apport extrêmement efficace pour une bonne prononciation. Bravo à tous les membres de votre équipe pour ce magnifique travail.

      Hello Kamila,

      Thanks for the comment. Good luck!

    Thanks a lot! I’ve been looking for a Russian course for ages, now I’ve found it! This is site is really impressive! By the way, how many days or months will it take to grasp all of these lessons masterfully?

    1. Learn Russian Step by Step says:

      Hello Röyal,

      Thank you for the nice words. We are happy you find the course helpful.

      We did not really count how long it might take to go through all the lessons. To master the Russian language, only these lessons are not enough. Besides the grammar, you need to grow your vocabulary daily (for example here), as well as do some exercises to practice and reinforce what you’ve learned (for example here). It’s also very helpful to try to talk or at least to compose written messages. For that you might want to find some Russian friends.

      But if we are, indeed, talking just about these lessons, one might take you about 10 minutes to study (the first ones are short, the more advanced ones are longer). For the moment we have 153 lessons, the 154th is coming soon. So it would take you about 26 hours to go through the whole course.

      Please keep in mind the this course is not complete and we add new lessons from time to time.

  11. Dario says:

    Thanks for the lessons. They are very helpful and will help me in Russia. Is there a way how to recognise the case of a sentence esily. I am still struggling with mastering the cases as I am putting the wrong ending.

    1. Learn Russian Step by Step says:

      Hi Dario,

      Thank you for the feedback, appreciated.

      There can be a few cases in one sentence, one per each nouns or pronoun.
      There are a few patterns that can be easily recognized, for example, if you say that there is no something or someone, it’s always in Genitive (нет молока, нет доктора). If you count things, like “пять яблок”, “десять шагов”, it’s also Genitive.

      You can also recognize cases by their prepositions. “Для” is used only with Genitive, “о/об” only with Prepositional. You can check our other lessons for the full list.

      The more you practice, the better you start seeing the patterns and the easier it will be.

  12. Dario says:

    Will you be addi g be more lessons? Especially for intermediate level.

    1. Learn Russian Step by Step says:

      Hello Dario,

      We are limited in resources and therefore don’t add the lessons very often. Nevertherless, the next one is on the way and will be published within next 10 days.

      If you like to have more practice for the intermediate level, you should check out Everyday Russian which has all sorts of lessons to learn and practice.
