Russian skill tree conquered.

I've just been called "awesome" - Must be true, Duolingo has said so just now. And all because I've "conquered the Russian skill tree"! But am I now a Russian speaker? Answers on a postcard, please. :-)

You're awesome, but not good Russian speaker, if you've been taking exercises only on Duo :)

Congratulations! I don't know whether you are a Russian speaker now... Try finding a Russian and practice ;-)

Do you get used to the alphabet in here? Because I tried to learn and I thought it was "kind of impossible" haha

I thought it was "kind of impossible" haha Impossible?!? There's no such word! - Finding a Russian in this part of the world? Any other language - no problem.

Yes, no such word!

It really isn't hard if you put an hour into it, like with all alphabets. Once you've been reading Russian for a while it will seem like second nature and you won't have to think "what is П аgain?" :)

Well done, Caversham! I am excited for you. There are lots of people around who are looking for a buddy with whom to practice their English, and lots of sites with inexpensive Russian teachers. Best of luck!

I'm going through a period right now where I feel I will never be done, at least to my satisfaction! I'm going to keep slogging away though.

If it's any consolation, that feeling that one will never be done is going to be with me for quite a few years yet! :-)
