Ratings and Reviews

Excellent Russian grammar resource


I've been studying Russian on my own for a couple years. I use flash cards for vocabulary, Pimsleur for pronunciation and this program for grammar. It is better than the textbook I bought because I actually use it! The games are useful for reinforcing the concepts in each lesson. The conversations are good for listening practice - I like that you can play the whole thing at native speed, or play each sentence on its own.



The problem with many language software is that they show you pictures, but it's often unclear what is actually being represented by those pictures. Is it a girl? It it outdoors? Is it sunny? No, it's walking. But you can't really tell she's walking. Huh. Living Language does this but let's you get the English translation. I've found this working very nicely, and I'm making progress with learning a new language — at last.

Better than other russian apps


Personally, my only complaint is that it's too easy. Then again I've studied russian already for a couple years. They also could've been way more creative with the games. Most of them barely qualify as "games" at all. Overall, it's still a good app at a reasonable price.
