          Great course! I find it hard though to graduate from level 9 - perhaps because, as a native speaker, I take too many liberties with English equivalents ;)

          i changed the settings in Windows to make it a Russian keyboard and then put pieces of tape on the keys and wrote on the tape to show the Russian letters. Not bad! Once it gets to the mobile app it will be easy to use the Russian keyboard since you can switch back and forth easily on the phone.

          I agree about the keyboard. I'm currently on my laptop switching between the English and Russian keyboard layout for each question. And as I'm new to the Russian keyboard layout it is incredibly slow going, having switch to another page to check where the letters are. I know I will get faster as it becomes more familiar, but an inbuilt keyboard would be so much more practical!

          I would be much happier if Duolingo added a Russian keyboard- as it would take me a quicker amount of time to type out the Cyrillic letters. As of now, I use the "Character Map" application on Windows 7 (I have no desire to install any new applications). Until Duolingo releases a virtual keyboard, it will be difficult for me to avoid getting wrong answers when I am asked to translate from English into Russian! (Very frustrating and time-consuming)

            It's pleasing how easy it is given that I know Bulgarian though! :)

            I'm on an IPad and have no idea how to find a Russian keyboard. I will have to try again on a machine with more capacity to switch from one tab to another. However, if anyone knows how I can find the Russian alphabet on an iPad, I'd love to hear from you.

            You can add the keyboard under settings/keyboard/add and switch between them by pressing the key with the globe on it.

            Thanks for bringing this course to Duolingo. I have a couple of questions, though. First, how do you enable the course to display the lessons in Cyrillic alphabet? And second, when will be this course available in the app? Once again, I thank you for this amazing effort since I always wanted to learn this language. Have a nice day :)

            If I may make a suggestion (sorry if it's already been said, but this thread is already too long to read through), I think it would be a great idea to include an additional alphabet exercise that actually goes through the alphabet in full and lets you test your pronunciation of the letters. I think it would help a lot with the listening exercises. The exercise tips explanations are good overall if I need them, but some are confusing, and, honestly, I usually forget it's there.

            You may read our last update if you want to install a layout. Basically, it means that you press the same keys, but different letters appear.

            There are two main layouts:

            • the standard (ЙЦУКЕН) is what Russians use. Makes sense if Russian is your love for life or if you have easy access to Russian keyboards (stickers?) or if you live in Russia. For obvious reasons, makes total sense on a phone or a tablet (they have no physical keyboard anyway!—and they might turn out to be less customizable, but a standard keyboard is always there)

            standard

            • a phonetic keyboard (say, ЯВЕРТЫ) which sort-of-matches Russian letters to Latin letters close in pronunciation (also maps extra keys somewhere). I think, it is just fine if you are moderately interested in Russian but that's it. Has an obvious advantage if your physical keyboard does not have Russian letters.

            phonetic

            On a PC or a Mac a phonetic keyboard mapping is always a choice (Macs even has one in the basic package), and the switching between the languages is done by keyboard shortcuts (Shift+Alt / ⌘ + Space)

            Hm. Really? Are you looking at English keyboards only and do not try to add different languages, or does it really nor support anything?

            Is there going to be an immersion section once it has stabilized?

            really don't like examples. only "where is my beer", "my mother in germany". have it something more closer to our life?

            ahh.. Is the entire course going to be in transliteration? I was a Russian major and it took me 45 minutes to get through the first 5 lessons.

            You have the option to do both Latin and Cyrillic.

            I did the placement test using cyrillic...but now the little toggle option has disappeared, and I'm stuck in transliteration hell. Anyone know what I can do to get it back, or to flip it permanently or...something?

            Update in case anyone else runs into this: I am using Duolingo on my smartphone. The alphabet toggle doesn't show up for me on the default (mobile) version of the site, but if I select "view full site" and take the course there, I can switch to cyrillic. It's a workaround for the time being.

            Now back to playing with the new toy :)
