My girlfriend and her family speak Russian and I really want to learn it so I can feel like I know the real her! Please release it soon as she wants me to go and meet her family over there Summer 2014 and I want to be able to speak to them myself without her having to translate everything.

How would Duolingo handle the Cyrillic keyboard? It's bad enough with umlauts in German? I know some Ukrainian, and whenever I try to type something in the language, it's hunt-and-peck to the extreme. Personally, I'd do Ukrainian before Russian, but I think it'd be hard for Duolingo to do either.

Did you install the German keyboard layout? On my laptop, I can easily switch between the English, German, and Greek layouts. All operating systems support this. There is no need to use Alt+4digits combinations.

I guess that if one is willing to put an effort into learning Russian, one would also be happy to install a Cyrillic keyboard input first.

Installing the layout is easy peasy: рашцнфрвлпшентслыг...

Now, learning what letter is where is tricky, because there is zero correspondence between the Latin and Cyrillic layouts.

Best option I see is to have a letter map showing on the same page. It will be slow but eventually you'd learn.

I would so much love to see Russian! New livemocha does not work for me, especially not with Russian - everything is google translated and unintelligible!

I'm just going to keep track of their Careers page job postings to look out for Russian hires. The last I saw was Mandarin, about a year ago.

So Mandarin is probably next on Duolingo, Russian might take a while.
