Transliteration!

Gah! At what point in the course does the transliteration stop?

Upper left. See the Аа button? Click it. It will read Яя and everything will turn into Cyrillic!

I wonder why Я is the letter chosen to represent Cyrillic...

I reckon it's because they couldn't use A and it's a letter that a lot of people would easily recognise as Cyrillic.

James, if I were you - I'd never ever do a single transliterated exercise. Cyrillic is not Chinese, it's merely an alphabet, pretty close to Latin. If you are into Russian - you'd better master it. But then again, it's only my opinion )

I know, I don't want to do transliteration - that's why I want to turn it off. I actually went to college for Russian +10 years ago, so I'm using Duo as a way to brush up on all the skills I've lost along the way.
