Writing in cyrillic

Please, I need your help!

I started a course of Russian in Duolingo and part of the exercises are writing activities in Russian from English. The point is that while typing no Cyrillic words are appearing on the screen so it's impossible for me to understand if I do right or wrong.

Is there a way to see your typing in Cyrillic?

Thank you in advance.

If you're using the mobile app on Android or iOS (or any tablet or device which has a touch-screen keyboard) - it takes a few seconds to add a Russian cyrillic keyboard.

If you're using a PC or laptop with a traditional keyboard there are still a variety of options which will allow you to type in Russian:

You're welcome. See my comment in What in heaven's name . . . ? or in Learning another alphabet. Be sure to look up the explanation by Shady_arc, one of the course developers, that is referred to in both discussions.

After you've done the little setup involved, things will become much easier. Ask if you have questions.
