Russian for Duolingo!
I am so hyped about Russian for duolingo! I have been waiting for it for as long as I can remember and was super disappointed when it wasn't done in Jan 2015. Only 65% done? But what about the cute Russian girl who works in the lobby? She won't be impressed with my Spanish!
I imagine that it is a whole ton of work making and editing all those duolingo exercises, and you guys are doing it for free, which is heroic, and we thank you for your service.
But me and 92,000 others are biting our nails to the bone in anticipation! I mean, as soon as there is a beta version, we can at least get started. Then I can woo Masha with some " Привeт, как делa?"
We know it is hard to wait and we do our best, but it indeed goes slower than we all would like. We even asked Duo team if we could realease to the better whatever portion is completed, but then didn't agree to do that. Maybe even for your best. A couple of guys whom we've invited to test the portion will make it much more user friendly than it is now. I'll ask Luis once again, if it would be possible to make available only a portion of the course maybe only to some users and not everyone.
Wow! What a wonderful information. I hope to get good news soon. Thank you, Larisa.
You can try the English course for Russian speakers. It's quite hard for non-native speakers of Russian, but it's worth a try.
