Hmmm...I'm reviewing three languages and learning one new one. You are right. Russian never prompts me to speak. If it is any consolation, load the language in your language settings and click Russian. It seems to work well.

What do you mean by "speaking exercises"? The Russian for English speakers course has the same sorts of exercises that the other courses have.

There may be a Russian for English speakers "2.0" (continuation/expansion) planned, I don't know. But what is available now is all that Duo usually provides and it seems to me that there is probably nothing more planned.

If you are looking for exercises in translation from English to Russian, try doing the English for Russian speakers course, which supplements the Russian for English speakers course fairly well.

I mean the kind of exercise where you'd get a Russian sentence presented and you have to read it out loud with correct pronunciation

Some of the lessons had those, although I forget for which languages. I turned my microphone off long ago and so am no longer presented with such. Do you have all your sound settings set to on? If you don't you won't get such exercises even if they are available.

Hahah, I am well aware of the settings about both listening and speaking exercises. You were, however, right in pointing it out though! It's the internet after all... On a side note, may I commend you on your day streak, persistence prevails!

I'm glad you didn't take offence at my pointing out something obvious. If your computer is set up correctly, then it wold seem that that facility isn't offered now, at least for Russian . . . or maybe you are part of an A/B test. There have been frequent complaints about voice recognition (but I forget for which languages). Thanks for the nice words about my streak! Nūlla diēs sine līneā.
