Duolingo is a free website and app that offers language courses that look like games. I've always been a big fan of Duolingo because it allows me to practice the languages I'm currently studying (Russian and French) when all I have with me is my phone. I reckon, however, that you can't become fluent by … Continue reading Duolingo Review: Japanese for English Speakers.
As I mentioned in my previous entry, I found out about a very promising language-learning method developed by Gabriel Wyner, writer of the book "Fluent Forever." But before I started with that, I did my daily Duolingo assignments plus a little bit more (it's just so addictive), and I noticed that I could get a … Continue reading 30 Days of Russian – Day 9: Basic Vocabulary

Привет! After yesterday's overwhelming experience with the genitive case, I realized that just trying to memorize the cases would be a lot less efficient than trying to learn them naturally by talking or reading. But in order to learn from natural Russian speech how words change, I first need to know those words, so I … Continue reading 30 Days of Russian – Day 8: A Change In Plans.
Привет! It's been a week and I've learned a lot, but it's time to take it more seriously. I mentioned in my previous post that I must start learning grammar properly. The most challenging aspect (from my perspective) about Russian grammar is the existence of six different cases for nouns. That is, nouns change depending … Continue reading 30 Days of Russian – Day 7: The Genitive Case
Привет! Today, as I've been doing every day, I did my Duolingo assignments and reviewed all the words I've been adding to my lists on Quizlet. I still only have the words from the last lesson I studied in the book I mentioned previously and some new words I learned from Duolingo. Besides that, I decided I … Continue reading 30 Days of Russian: Day 6: Writing a Diary
I didn't have time to write yesterday, but I actually spent a lot of time studying Russian. I did my Duolingo tasks in the morning (remember that I'm doing 50 points every day, which is almost one complete lesson), where I practiced plurals and some vocabulary. This time I started making a list of the … Continue reading 30 Days of Russian – Day 5
I've been studying Russian for at least one hour every day for the past few days and I have developed many necessary skills (I can type and write faster), but I still don't feel that my Russian knowledge is really increasing that much. That's why I think that the next step is immersing myself. Besides … Continue reading 30 Days of Russian – Day 4: Immersion
Привет! Today I spent my time figuring out how to make my Russian-learning experience more efficient. Since I study mostly using my computer, I decided that I have to first learn how to use the Russian keyboard properly. I started practicing using this website, where you can memorize the location of each key through a lot … Continue reading 30 Days of Russian – Day 3: Developing Useful Techniques.
First of all, I'm sorry I didn't have time to write a post every day this week. This doesn't mean that I failed the challenge. I have actually been studying Russian for at least an hour every day during the past four days. I'll try to write more often so I can catch up, but … Continue reading 30 Days of Russian – Day 2: Getting Serious
