Cyrillic Russian course

I dont feel that the russian course benefits from a latin transliteration. There is much value in learning to sight read in the native language and the latin probably impairs the learning I have.

You can turn off the latin transliteration.

In my opinion, transliteration is a mistake !!! Cyrillic is actually very easy and quick to learn. I learned easily in one day !! Any of you can do the same!

When you're doing a skill, there is a button on the top left where you can switch from Aa to Яя, just above the bar which shows your progression.

I can already sight read in russian , which is my point. The transliteration, IMHO, does not assist with pronunciation as some of the phonetic sounds in russian pronunciation can not be transcribed into latin.
