Finished my Russian tree!
After 265 days of doing some form of Russian practice, I've finally reached the end of the tree! It's pretty cool to think of how much progress I've made over all these days. My favorite word from the course is probably международный because it's the first word of considerable length that I was able to spell and say.
I definitely plan on continuing with Russian and do a reverse tree. If anyone knows of any alternative resources to better my knowledge of the language, feel free to share some with me.
Большое спасибо to the course admins for answering all my questions as I went along, and to Duolingo itself for all those incessant reminders and notifications!
I wouldn't call it lame. I'm subscribed to Peppa Pig in several languages on YouTube. :-) (Russian: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnenDeyXGv5IRYsa3QAGdhQ)
Any idea what reverse tree you'll do?
I haven't asked around, but I'm curious what the best one would be? English for Russians?
Or if you wanted a challenge, trying learning another language FROM Russian!
I'm probably gonna try the English from Russian tree, as well as Spanish from Russian (since my Spanish needs work)
Congrats! I'd say now do Memrise and/or Anki (google it if you've never heard of it). You can find new words in all sorts of places, but since you seem to like anime, why not check out some anime (although the dubs are absolute garbage, I'm not even exaggerating xD) or work yourself trough a fanfiction. (warning: there are participles and adverbials, but they are not that hard to grasp, here's a nice playlist for that https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLrIkLgUgjNHfTWmGkEqo7_ge7x50VQEWE) yeah don't let grammar give you too much of an headache
Gratulations! :) Can you share some insights on how you tackled the tree? Did you finish all the levels on each topic or got to certain level in some before you advanced further? What worked for you?
Before moving on to another skill, I'd make sure the skill before it was gold. I'd spend about two days on each skill. I also used Quizlet for vocab
I'm new to this, so I don't know how far taking duolingo courses actually take you with a new language. Nevertheless, listening to Russian pod-casts, watching videos on interesting topics or reading news in Russian might help you get used to the melody, rhythm and general feeling of the language. https://www.bbc.com/russian/ Do you feel that you can safely navigate the Russian web with the acquired language?
Congratulations and great job!
I've a small list of resources I use/plan to use (not including sites people have already listed):
http://www.digitaldialects.com/Russian.htm (This one is really slow for me, but that might just be my internet)
Hopefully at least one of these will be of some help!
Респект и уважуха :) Можно почитать русскую классику в оригинале. Анна Каренина (Л.Н. Толстой), стихи Пушкина и Есенина, русские частушки :)
Also I see you have some culture by your profile picture, huh?--
