Ivonna-Mae , this seems to be a very useful website for advanced Russian learners, I only looked briefly , but stories are varied and on real life related topics as well as cultural..there are other materials on the website..

Thank you! How long have you been studying Russian..?

Thank you :) May I ask, why is only 47 days surprising? My Russian is only at level 6, after all

Ivonna, levels in Duolingo do not represent how much you know..:-)) I thought for some reason , that you were already advanced Russian learner

For example , my level in Russian is a native speaker..But when I started Duolingo the placement test gave me level 11..:-)) levels are just amount of XPs.. my levels of 25/24 are just xps..they show nothing of my real knowledge.. (my real knowledge of some of these languages is more or less advanced) Hope this answers your question..:-)

Oh, I understand :) i only fluently speak English, and I’m fairly new to Duo! I hope to go to Russia in the spring, so I’m just looking for more resources besides Duo. I understand that the creators do what they can, but I feel as if the Russian and other non English alphabet languages are just a little gyped when it comes to courses

I will definitely check that out, thank you. I am also hoping duolingo rolls out Russian language stories as they do already for Spanish, French, etc.
