Forget learning how to ask directions to the nearest municipal swimming pool!!
Were here to help you learn all the most common used Russian words in ONE week.

As kids we were memorizing hundreds of words without effort.It worked due to strong associative memory and connection between words and sensation.

We believe that a language is an audio-visual dynamic environment of images.

Pros and cons of Learn Russian™ app for iPhone and iPad

Learn Russian™ app good for

I went to Russia only with this App, and a map. Back home safe (Brazil): no problems at airports, customs, hotels, restaurants. No local travel agents, nothing - me and my basic russian. People are friendly. And, if you try to speak some russian, they will love you!
The perfect app for someone whos trying to learn a new language, I really enjoy learning with it and its really helpful to learn the basic stuff.
There are so many different opportunities to reinforce the vocabulary and pronunciation. A great learning tool!
Good but i wish the pronunciation was in english and not Russian
This is such a great app... Easy to use and great features! Super worth giving it a try!
This app really helped me understand and memorize the Russian language.

Some bad moments

Guys, I am a native Russian speaker and I tell you: this app is TERRIBLE. Translations are incorrect in way too many cases. Examples: word zebra has translation - stripes, lioness - female and hedgehog - mammal. Obviously the one who created this doesnt know even basic Russian. 100% google translate. Pls, author, dont make sh*t anymore.
The latest update is a step in the WRONG direction :( Repeating, full-screen ads on loop ruin the experience. And now the app randomly freezes. Please fix this :((
I used to enjoy this vocabulary building app - until they began flooding it with pop up adds.
