Through Skazki, for the first time ever, culturally grounded, blended Russian language learning exists for free in the digital sphere!

Skazki is an application that builds Russian language proficiency in cultural context of famous Russian fairy tales.

Through the Diglot Weave and TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling) blended language learning techniques, Skazki teaches users to elevate their Russian vocabulary, pick up on the patterns of Russian cases, and notice how certain Russian words are inherently intertwined with culture. Skazki is intended to supplement traditional Russian language learning.

Perfect for children, Russian language learners, native speakers, and culture enthusiasts!

Among the famous Russian tales included are:
- The Sea Tsar and Vasilisa the Wise
- Koschei the Deathless
- The Feather of Finist the Falcon
- Vasilisa the Beautiful
- The Tale of Tsar Saltan
- The Tale of the Golden Cockerel
And more...

Illustrations included in Skazki are all done by the famous Russian artist Ivan Bilibin, who brought the Russian skazki (mass of folktales) to life with his work (all in the public domain).

All translations used are in the public domain. Citation information is still provided.

Excellent app! Just a couple suggestions

This is an excellent app to learn Russian. Instead of just giving an entire story in Russian, specific words and phrases are in Russian and the rest in English. Overall a great experience. However, maybe there could be a rotation of words in the stories. For example, I finished a story and wanted to read it again for different words, but it’s just the same with a little more. What I’m saying is that maybe there could be a randomized selection of words every time you read. Otherwise it would be perfect!
