After 8 months i have finally finished the Russian tree, it took me so long because i was really busy the last year. Can you give me some advice what to do next, so i can improve my Russian language skills even more, i was thinking on doing the English language tree for Russian speakers, what do you think?

edit: today i also finished the English from Russian course

Wonderful job! That's certainly something to be proud of. Lingots to you!

I think, that doing the reverse Russian tree would be an excellent idea and certainly keep your Russian up and running, but maybe also concentrate on your other languages so as to reach those trees as well. Again, excellent job! :)

Miloše, svaka ti čast! :) Ja sam nameravao da završim drvo ruskog, a nisam još i ne učim ga privatno već dva-tri meseca, jer nisam mogao zbog manjka vremena i obaveza, pa mislim da ću krenuti ponovo da učim i to ozbiljno i intezivno početkom jeseni. Osim toga, otputovaću za Rusiju sledeće godine sa svojom sestrom i posetićemo prijateljicu moje sestre s kojom se čujem ponekad preko društvenih mreža. Ona slabo govori srpski, a zna tečno engleski i nemački, ali bi volela da nauči srpski, jer smatra da je lep i ima želju da se uda ovde :D Međutim, ljudi iz Kragujevca su fini i imam lepo mišljenje o njima :)

Hvala puno! :) Meni je trebalo ukupno oko 9 meseci da zavrsim drvo, a;i trajalo je toliko dugo, posto sam dosta ucio da bih upisao fakultet, ali inace mislim da moze mnogo, mnogo brze. Zelim ti puno srece u tvojem sledecem pokusaju :) . U koje mesto u Rusiji ides? Ja sam oduvek imao zelju da odem u Rusiju da bih obisao njihove gradove, otici cu kad tad :) . Bas volim kada cujem da neko zeli da nauci srpski, steta sto ne naprave kurs srpskog jezika na duolingu. Hvala puno u ime svih kragujevcana! :D

Congratulations! Yes, the reverse tree is worth doing. Immersion is worth doing too, I can help you with finding articles if you're interested in translating Russian to English, or if you feel really brave you can get into English to Russian immersion. Nothing though beats actually using the language in real conversations, so I would recommend looking for native speakers to correspond with.

Whatever you decide to do, if you'll permit the most shameless self-advertising ever, you'll likely find some of these sites helpful. The Revereso-context one especially has been invaluable for me: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/14825800

There's a lot more translating from English to Russian. It is a lot harder.

Way to go! Congratulations from someone who has not yet finished either. (My excuse is that, unfortunately, I'm lazy.)

Definitely the reverse tree is to be recommended, although there are a couple of things you'll have to get used to, compared to the Russian for English speakers tree. . . . But it looks like you have finished it already, right?

You might try the German for Russian speakers course on Duo.

Off Duo, there is bliubliu if you can stand their time-slicing. Start readings/videos from bookbox and then keep increasing the difficulty little by little, and then try some of lingq. Try some online radio or audiobooks, which I think you can find on the pages that Theron126 listed. If you feel adventuresome, try looking for a book to order from an online Russian bookstore, such as ozon or one of dozens of others.

Congrats on finishing both trees. Reading the comments in the lessons can be beneficial, the input and feedback from the users and developers is great. (Didn't know http://forvo.com/ existed until others pointed it out.) Memorizing word frequency lists can help, learn the top 5,000 most used words can make reading text a lot easier. There are other ways to listen to spoken Russian, shortwave radio, watching movies, videos, etc.
