Start Learning Russian started with two online language programs. Both of these programs require a flash player which is not suitable for Andriod and IOS devices but still play on a desktop PC running Windows, Mac or Linux.

The Russian language helpers is comprised of three learning area's:

  • How to use
  • The basics
  • Phrases

How to use

As it says on the tin, you will learn how to use the program.

The basics

Contains six simple word memorisation categories that teach you the alphabet, numbers from zero to one hundred, days of the week, months of the year, the four seansons, and common colours/colors


Six main categories contain forty-three sub-categories with over 1400 Russian word and phrases to learn. Each work is split into its phonetic parts to help you pronounce the word as you hear it on the audio recording of a Russian teacher.

Top tip!

If a word looks too complicated to learn, use the alphabet-bar at the top of the phrases page and listen how each letter of the word is pronounced. You will then have a better idea how to say the word.

Remember, baby steps are the key to learning difficault tasks.
