Cyrillic typing practice

For those of you who want to practice your typing skills with a Cyrillic keyboard, I recommend this site: http://www.keybr.com/#!game

The typing exercises start out simple with a few letters from the keyboard. As you improve, the system will detect this and add new keys and words to type.

To switch to Russian go to settings -> keyboard layout -> where it says "English" click to get a drop-down menu where you can select "Russian" -> done.

Hope this is helpful!

Bedankt! or should I say... Спасибо :D

If you want a typing tutor to install on your PC, klavaro is good. You can set the keyboard to what you prefer, and it has "lessons" to guide you through gradually learning the Cyrillic keyboard.

Damn, this thing looks really really cool, especially the Space Invaders type game, but I can't seem to get it to work with my keyboard (doesn't register the keys correctly?) I'm not sure what the problem is :s

Edit: Didn't have the Russian keyboard switched on properly, neat game :D

I've always been a fan of Klavogonki. Vse10 was also a good tool to improve my touch typing.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/slogger

Agreed, for both. One of the nice things about klavogonki is you get to read little snippets from Russian books as you type, and sometimes you come across books you'd like to read. . . . However, for both, I think, you need to be able to read Russian to navigate around the sites.

I found Vse10 the easiest of these to use. Because I know very little Russian, I used google translate to register and read instructions for the exercises.
