User Reviews for Learn Russian Language & Vocab

Great app!

I got this app because I needed to learn more Russian. My initial reaction was "Its gonna be some dumb app that you need to pay $20 for." Boy, was I wrong! Although you do have to pay for the premium version, it teaches you a lot in 5 minutes! You learn at least 5 new words in those 5 minutes you have and you get to do different things to help you memorize and spell those words. The only sad thing about the app is that you only get 5 minutes every 10 hours. I also decided to learn French (which probably wasn't a good idea, I should focus on one language at a time. 😬😂) but again, if I just finished my 5 minutes of Russian (or vice versa) I would have to wait 10 hours to get another 5 minutes.Overall, this is an amazing app for anyone who is a beginner at the language they are learning, or a pretty advanced person who just wants to learn some more of that language or more difficult words! 😊

Better than Duolingo

I love this app! My family is russian so I have some vocabulary and can understand some stuff, but I downloaded this app so that I could learn how to read. It starts you off learning the alphabet, then moving on to words and phrases. The pronunciation of the words is very accurate and the voice is definitely modeled after a native speaker. This app is better than duolingo because it starts you from the beginning, with the alphabet instead of words and phrases. It is important to know these first before learning diction, syntax, and grammar. If you want to learn Russian, this is the app to do it with. The only reason that this did not get 5 stars is because of the time limit. The 5 minutes is a good time frame and really pushes you to produce answers fast. But after they run out, you have to wait 10 hrs until they refill. If you want more time, you have to pay for the app. This was advertised as a FREE way to learn Russian. I understand the whole premise is to be as free, but maybe have just choose to view an ad for 5 additional minutes. Otherwise, this is the best app I’ve seen yet!

So this is a spelling app?

The description is talking about Korean, but I got the Russian app. A lot of this app is very good. But then they randomly throw things at you so advanced that it becomes frustrating. Cyrillic is a big adjustment to make, but they have a swipe-type game where you have to drag your finger across characters to spell complicated words like “eleven” in Cyrillic when you’ve only barely touched on how you might do that. This should have been saved for further down the road once you’ve been made comfortable with the characters. Since I am just now memorizing the characters and how they sound, I have to swipe a bunch of times so the app can tell you that you got it wrong. No kidding. What a complete waste of time. If you’re going to force me to play a game I am unable to play yet, can I at least skip it? Furthermore, if you sign up with Apple ID on iPhone… then go to sign up on a web browser with Apple ID, it creates an entirely new account and nothing is transferred from your previous sessions OR the languages you’ve purchased. — I think this app COULD be fantastic… if they put a little more thought into how you progress through it. And fix Apple ID logins so you aren’t stuck to a single device.

iOS 9.3? It's not working for that.

This has iOS 9.3 required, but it crashes on two max 9.3x devices I still use. I just bought the lifetime premium, and I have nothing to use it on at the moment besides a computer where it's not saying the words like in the app. Very disappointed as this needs to be fixed to support older devices again. Original review:It has great pronunciation and an easy format, but there's never enough time and the prices are outrageous. The worst part is watching those seconds tick away trying to spell some of the longer words. As the app doesn't seem to have any verbal check, if I can't say the words correctly yet I can't begin to spell them correctly. I would easily spend an hour a day over two sessions instead of the little base of five minutes each session. The prices make me think I'd need to spend ten hours a day to get any value.

Accelerated Learning Techniques Applied

Excellent app for making the learning of important vocabulary of a target foreign language fun. The technology used in this app subtly draws one’s focus away from the fact that one is learning new vocabulary, and lulls the objecting overly-active conscious into a quiet compliance. The call and response approach is effective in encoding new words in the mind for memory, the kinesthetic and tactile nature of the interactive game-like presentation make practice an easy habit. One thing I’m having trouble with is getting my polyglot subscription to open in the general “drops” app. I purchased the polyglot subscription inside of the Russian drops app. I can access all the languages now from the Russian app. But not the general drops app like I would like to be able to see Thank you.

Amazing way to learn

It’s fun and addicting, if you like to see your progress. I absolutely love this way of fun learning. I’ve picked up so much here that I can relate to Russian television. I did pay for the full version because like I said it’s addicting and I hated waiting for the word reload. Though when it did reload I was so excited! I recommend the full version if you’re trying to learn a language fully. And quickly. It’s honestly one of my favorite apps. Only one thing the Доброй ночи should be changed toСпокойной ночи. The previous way is no longer used. Other than that, I love it. Recently for some reason it still shows that I’m premium but it has removed my premium rights. I literally use this everyday so I’m highly upset about this. I didn’t pay for this app to just all of the sudden not allow me to use it. And then to try and seek assistance is so difficult. Not sure what happened but hope it’s resolved soon. I’m not paying again.

Please read!

So I truly love the app. I do. But there are always some things that can be fixed. Like for example, you surely know of the button that says “Share and get 20 minutes”? Yes, well the problem is that it seems to not work for me. I’m not sure if it is problem with my device or with app. Either way, if it is app that has issue then I would like that to be fixed. It’s not a big deal but just want to let you know. Anyway, I have learned a few things and I enjoy the app! It has a nice design and I appreciate that it sometimes repeats the same thing over and over again. I’m sure that I am one of those people that complain about this but... the time. Both things. The time it takes to recharge it too long. I mean, you wait for 10 hrs for 5 minutes! Of course you would probably tell me to just pay for more time. That’s how life is. Most things are not free. I might question who would pay that much money for an app that teaches a certain amount of Russian. I’ve learned a small portion of Cyrillic alphabet. In short time. But you are not here to read a random person’s progress. I assume you are here to see if you are doing well and if there are some things you could change or fix. Now about the 5 minutes, you must get this complaint a bunch. But time too little. Anyway, I must say goodbye. Thank you for reading and I hope to see the small problem fixed.

Previously critical about previous update—now I love it

I have been using Drops for months now to learn Russian and I love how this app became a part of my routine effortlessly. I was critical of the previous update because I thought it sped things up too quickly, which I wrote about. However, with this new update, they resolved the issue I had. This shows that they really pay attention to their consumers which is very admirable. I truly thank them for paying attention! My only suggestion that I have left is a more efficient way to select the words I want to study in the Touch Word Dojo. That being said, I am truly appreciative of this app and the efforts the developers make to this product as great as it can be. I am excited to see what they will come with next.

Love Drops, but not crazy about the update

I love Drops to help me learn useful Russian vocab in a fun, easy way. It was especially helpful when I was just starting our and didn't know how to read the Cyrillic alphabet. I actually like the time limits imposed by the free version, as it prevents learning from becoming too exhausting. I had had issues syncing between two devices, but that has been resolved. That being said, I'm not crazy about the latest update. I don't hate it though, but I liked the old version better. It's nice that the different topics are grouped thematically and that one section from each group got unlocked by the update. But the groupings also made topics nonlinear, which makes it harder for me to pick which vocab area I should learn next. It's almost overwhelming to have more freedom in what to learn next because now there's less structure. I'd like it more if users could have the option of using the app with the old configuration or the new one. Still a great app to assure language learning!

Fast and helpful

Overall, this app has very much helped me in learning Russian. My grandpa is from Russia and I wanted to learn to help understand him better. This app starts you off with learning the alphabet (which I learned super fast in under two days due to the fact that the app is very helpful and efficient). After that it moves into words and phrases which is more helpful for learning Russian. I very much like the design and simplicity as well. The only reason I gave the app a 4 star rating instead of 5 is because of the time limit. I don’t think people should have to pay to learn a new language. Also five minutes a day is helpful, but people who are more serious need more time. As well as that this was advertised as a free app. As a closing statement, I think the learning methods and efficiency is amazing but the time limit should be put as a larger amount of time.Thanks for reading my review and have a great day.
