I'm actually learning this because I have a new Russian friend in school and she has no friends so I translate with the translator on my phone but I want to have conversation with her so this is why I'm doing Duolingo and Russian also I know French and don't think I'm learning Russian just because I have a friend I mean I also want to learn this language because I love learning languages I know at least five languages already with Duolingo and I love it so just please don't put any comment saying that I'm learning dish to just to talk to her I'm also learning this to to learn it and talk to her but yeah I love love love this app it is so great I'm so happy I'm learning another language and I'm so happy this app exist I love this
Why aren't they teaching us the actual Russian alphabet before throwing words at us?? Like 'a' is for apple... what sound does 'й' make on it's own???
This is only my second lesson in a language that obviously doesn't have a romanized alphabet. I feel they dropped the ball on this
In fact, teaching whole words first has been found effective for learning. (Only they do make us key in letters sometimes here!) Reverso helps. https://dictionary.reverso.net/english-russian/bicycle
