Originally I wanted to do Russian so about a year ago I checked and I saw Russian wasn't coming out for a very long time, so in June I officially started Ukrainian (I had sampled it before) and I loved it. As of now my Ukrainian is rusty and I just need to learn the endings of pronouns and all the exceptions/strange meaning phrases; overall, I mainly need to learn new and important words. After I finished the course I didn't know if I should start over on German (my last German skill completed was like a year ago) or if I should continue on my Dutch that I had just started. So I posted a question on whether I should do Dutch or German and most people said German because it's widely used and almsot everyone speaks English in The Netherlands. So, I ask the same question to you but with different languages; Should I progress on my Ukrainian or start anew with Russian? Keep in mind that I had not done anything involving German for over a year and Dutch was a lot easier, but I'm starting brand new with Russian. Most of you will probably say that it's my choice but I just want some feedback to help me decide.

I might go back to Esperanto but since I actually did skills in them I'm not getting rid of 'em. Also once I finish Dutch I'll go do the English from Dutch tree

Well, I started Russian, and it's still in beta, but I love it! Up in the left corner of the page when you're on a lesson, it lets you switch back and forth from the Cyrillic alphabet and the English alphabet. It's convenient, but up until today, when I started Russian course on this site, I'd been self teaching myself, and so far still don't know the whole Cyrillic alphabet.

What I find frustrating is guessing what keys I'm pressing to get the right letters. Guess I gotta learn how to type again :/.

any Russian native-speaker easily understands that text above )) Ukrainians usually have more benefits - most of them can speak Ukrainian and Russian, and we (Russians) can only understand part of Ukrainian)

Yeah I've heard Ukrainian is a lot harder than Russian and when I looked at Russian case endings I was like, "oohh I should've waited till Russian comes out to do Ukrainian!".

It is a little harder in grammar because of the extra case and I think the pronunciation is a bit more complicated, but for the most part they are equally difficult
