Cyrillic not phonetic
Is the entire course based on phonetics and not on Russian writing (cyrillic alphabet)? I signed up to learn to read and apeak Russian; am I missing something?
Is there a place on duolingo to learn the phonetics of Russian accompanied by the alphabet character? I hear what they are saying, but have the hardest time remembering which character is what. I find myself looking up the sounds just to be able to write the answers. It's painfully slow-suggestions?
