A good way to start if you have no idea how to. It prepares you you with the alphabet, vowels and basic annunciation skills, reading skills. overall it helped me. See you in the next course!
Outstanding course for learning Russian alphabet! One will be able to write, read, and pronounce every vowels and consonants after finishing this course. Highly recommended.

Excellent course! The only part that is not so excellent is the dictation part. How are we to know whether an ending "a" sound should be written as a or o? I suppose after learning some vocabulary, it will all make sense and come more easily.

It was very challenging, given that many of the sounds are quite similar. Still Russian is a language I have always wanted to learn and this is a good starting point.

Muy buen curso, felicitaciones me hubiesen gustado ejercicios prácticos dentro de la plataforma para escribir o completar.

Very well structured course. I already knew the Russian alphabet, but the quizzes provided good revision.

I learned a lot in this course and i highly recommend it. Especially the understanding over consonants.
By Carolina C•
It would be helpful to have the translation of Russian words from the examples in English.
By Milan V•

It is a good start to learn Russian but you will need some extra help

Bon contenu mis un peu vite

Could have used some more explanations and exercises instead of only statements and examples, followed by multiple choice tests. Also would have benefited from better English, both written and spoken.

Seems like it could be a good course. However if you don't pay for the course you cannot submit the quiz for each week, thus Coursera always reports to you that you have assignments overdue.

I enjoyed the course, although I had to look up other resources to know what exactly "voiced" and "voiceless" consonants mean. The Russian sound system is tough!
By Elizabeth N C•
it is interesting to learn another language in this case Russian you had to put the pronunciation and the meaning each lesson
Easy and nice

This is a good course of you intend to create a program that can read text in Russian. The course offers a lot of rules in the Russian language, but is quite useless, unless you already have some vocabulary in Russian. Furthermore, in some of the quizzes, I had to guess what I am being asked. It wasn't clear what the question is...
By Stephanie K•
I'm not sure if this level of detail is sufficient for learning Russian. Although I'm not sure if it makes sense to just read out different vowels and how they change in context with voiced or voiceless consonants and then get immediately tested without really having a context to words or even know the Russian alphabet.

No one answered the questions I had after 7 days of posting. I was under the impression there would be tutors to help with the more difficult coursework. Clearly not.
By Rahul K•
This is slightly tough for beginners. Lectures are quite tough. Assignment of last week is tough.

Despite I unenrolled from this Course and Specialization - for which I never signed up in total - it still appears in my list of Courses I am following.
Please correct accordingly, in line with the email notification I received of being unenrolled!
