This app needs more reviews!

I recently decided I wanted to learn a different language other than Spanish, which I hear all the time in California, so I did some soul searching. While French and Italian are beautiful languages, to me they're too, how should I say this, bleh. Don't get me wrong, I attempted to learn them but they just wont stick. Recently I had a flashback to middle school days, oh those were the days. No bills, no boys, no boobs which meant no bras... Oh wait, was that Too much? Any who, back to the point. In middle school my best-friend was Russian and would teach me all the bad words so when my teacher would side eye me, I'd mumble "Suka" 🙈. Holy crap! How do I remember that? And thats what it hit me. RUSSIAN! I want to learn Russian! So, initially I downloaded the free version of this app. Despite being surrounded by "Holas" and "Adios'" I was able to learn how to count to 20 after 3 days of seamlessly indulging in the app. I then decided to download the full version, and it does it's purpose. Just wish there were more informal greetings to communicate with people my age (Im 22)

Loooooovvve it !

Хорошо ! I take Russian in college and this app has helped a great deal. I only have class twice a week and this way I can still hear the words and phrases every day so that I don't forget them. I've aced every test so far partially thanks to you guys 😆 so glad I found this app ! I started with the free version. It was great enough to where I went ahead and paid for it and bought the extra pack ! That's a big deal for me bc I'm a broke college student lol seriously people this app is a great investment.

Great for some basics

This is pretty great for some of the basic words and phrases, especially if you’re going to travel. It has been coinciding with my Russian language class so I’ve been using it to study, but it definitely has its limitations.

Regarding the flashcards (favorites), I really wish you had the ability to swipe them away when you get them correct or put them back into the rotation if you don’t. Instead you have to go through the whole stack and start over. You don’t get much repetition that way unless your pile is small. I don’t want to keep going in and selecting favorites because it takes time. A great review tool for learning, just wish it had more options.
