Am I the only one?...
Am I the only one that has done the Ukrainian course and so the first few Russian lessons are really easy but when I tried the placement test I failed a bunch?
I didn't do Ukrainian, but I took a year of Russian in high school, am level 5 in German for Russian speakers, and have been doing Russianpod101 for a couple of weeks... I didn't do well on the test either. It's easier to test out of some of the skills individually though.
The placement test wasn't working when I started Ukrainian, but I suspect I would've had the same problem in reverse. I tested out of several individual skills once I'd taken a tour of the vocab, but although they're similar, they aren't the same. Just like Russian was with Ukrainian, it's a help, but it's not a crib sheet ;)
