No words tab for Russian?

There does not seem to be a word tab for the Russian course for English speakers. Is it because the course is still in beta or is it a choice from the creators of the course?

Many thanks!

By the time the course was released Duo was no longer supporting Immersion (the Words tab).

Recently someone was putting up links for a non-official version of Immersion in various languages. I do not know if this is available in Russian or not. Perhaps try searching the forums for:

I thought the words tab and the Immersion tab were two different things. Are they somehow linked?

you can get around it a little though, if you learn a language that has a more... established? course like french or german, and then do something like open the words tab in a new tab and then select russian or something? i dont know much about it, i've only done it once and it doesnt give you that many words.

It still works. Open two tabs in say, Spanish. Then change one of those tabs to Russian. Then, in the other tab (the one still in Spanish), click "Words" and you'll get the Russian word list. You can even do flashcards.

The Russian word list is clearly in Beta, though. It's positively full of "<*sf>", which is some sort of internal code, I guess. It's also a bit awkward because each case and conjugation shows as a separate word.

Once RomainPeig wrote the question I immediately started to follow this discussion, because I too was missing the "words" section. And I was waiting for some useful feedback. And here it is. :-) Thanks mishatx! It only works if you follow the exact steps. I do hope that once the course is out of beta, the "words" section will be available without any problems.

I just tried that but it does not seems to be working (at least not anymore). I went on the Words and Immersion tabs in the French course, then tried to switch back to Russian and it allways redirects me toward the Homepage for this language.
