Some very useful resources for Russian.
...потому что мне хотелось помочь тем, кто учит русский язык.)
Most of these are either completely free or can be used for free. I've used many of them for language learning, and others are ones I've heard good things about.
Please, help out fellow Russian learners and share any other resources you find helpful, or any comments about the resources on here.
EDIT: I've added a "Podcasts" section and "Other" section, which are both comprised of recommendations from Theron126, f7elZi2j, and cactuswrenjp. Thanks for sharing!
Another EDIT: Added more resources (beyond just Podcasts and Other) as recommended by phabieau, F_582087, and ElizabethS746001. Thanks!
EDIT: I'm adding more resources as I find them.

How did I forget Forvo? Well, thanks for adding it. And huge thanks for Morfologija, I certainly need that!
... потому что мне хотелось помочь другим ученикам русского языка. ... помочь тем, кто учит русский язык.
Огромное спасибо за твой список! Какие много советов!
I want to add one of my favorite grammar sites. I already posted it somewhere, but I guess, here it should not be left out, too! I learned a lot from there. Every lesson has little tests that are partly listening comprehension and applying the learned grammar, after 4 lessons you can take a bigger test about the previously learned things.
I also want to share my favorite podcast sites, these are better for people that are already intermediate russian learners:
https://postnauka.ru/ Here they discuss scientific subjects and others.
https://radiomayak.ru/podcasts/podcast/id/703/ Here they read books from different authors, I like it because I can listen to my favorite German or English authors in Russian! But they also have different themes on radiomayak, just browse!
Happy learning everyone!
Спасибо!) I'll be sure to check out ПостНаука. It looks quite interesting.
My pleasure! Please do, it has a lot of resources, I only recently found the games page with little science tests. Fun ))))
I've updated the post with recommendations from the community—thanks!
For those of you intermediate learners who write in Russian frequently, I recommend a spellchecker tool called LanguageTool. It supports multiple languages and is one of the few I've found that supports Russian. But, of course, native speakers are always the best ones to ask for corrections... ;)
If you found the list useful, then my mission here has been accomplished. Good luck and happy learning, everyone!
I've updated the list again with more recommended resources. Again, thanks to everyone who shared them!
Для тех, кто уже более-менее знает язык, может быть полезен сайт http://gramota.ru/ . Сайт для русскоязычного населения, соответственно он полностью на русском, на сайте есть словари (толковый, синонимов, ударений и т.д.), правила грамматики, орфографии, пунктуации.
This is a great post.
But....you forgot "BeFluentInRussian" channel on YouTube by a guy named Fedor. It is great!
How could you.... :))))
Good news, fellow learners! I've updated the list with more resources—neat stuff, from Russian With Max to a new section for Duolingo forum posts!
Keep on suggesting more. I'll also be on the lookout for even more very useful resources.
Thanks for those ressources... Moreover i have another questions. I'm using Duolinguo on both computer and my smartphone. And i would like to know how to have russian alphabet on my smartphone. I have an Android device... If someone know... Thanks by advance
Choose the Russian keyboard layout and you're all set.
You can also go to your language settings. Settings - general management- language and input - virtual keyboard- Samsung keyboard - languages and types - add input language. At least I can then switch between different languages and use their dictionary by swiping over the space bar.
Thank you! You're awesome to provide these links!
Thanks you for making this list with all these links. Very useful !
I also use this. http://starling.rinet.ru/cgi-bin/morphque.cgi?flags=endnnnnp
Someone posted it on the forum and I saved it in my favourites.
I find it very useful as it shows all the declensions and conjugation of nouns, verbs and adjectives.
This is by far my favorite YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCymAc4YKWYjDqNnLoK7m-2A
It’s the only channel I’ve found with good intermediate videos. She teaches at university so the way she teaches grammar to English speakers is high quality.
I also watch a lot of native speakers vlog.
Классно! Я рад, что нашел этот комментарий! Ill проверить все это! Спасибо!
Hi! I know her channel is in Spanish, but I hope that someone will find it useful. She talks about grammar and Russian culture and makes everything easy to understand. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMXeXEwqrRHFvaCLGICseJA
