Hi! I'm learning Russian too, and so far, it seems like you'll know enough to have a good long conversation with someone, but not be totally fluent in Russian.

I've noticed the more I repeat a lesson I don't have to read it I can just hear and type the meaning nearly instantly. my current problem is the plurals. and to challenge myself sometimes i try and read and translate it without any sound.

Do you even learn the actual alphabet?

Duo doesn't teach you the alphabet, you have to learn yourself if you want to use it. Using a program like Memrise or something, it might take you a couple of days to a week on the outside to become proficient enough at it to start Duo.

You don't have to, though if you do, you can read anything.

Keep at it. The Russian tree left me at a beginner level with the ability to work with early intermediate resources. Absolutely learn the Russian alphabet - it makes it much faster in the long run and helps you hear the sounds. My advice would be to repeat back every sentence out loud to practice forming the words - most words are not pronounced at all like the English letter equivalent - very different mouthfeel. YouTube has some great resources to watch as you build vocab and listening comprehension. Have fun!

I'm from Russia, and I will help you if you'll have some problems. My council: practise courses if you need to do that. And learn more if you can, so you'll can do many courses of "tree".

I don't want to demotivate you, but it will be some beginner level. Also, just funny, I tried to learn Russian here, and for me it looks like vocabulary and phrases come from "cold war movies" :D but anyway it's good base to start to improve your Russian skill :)
