Learn Russian with Anki using our method, we utilize sentences as a core component of our decks. We suppose that to learn a language the student should go through listening, understanding, and producing plenty of correct sentences, for the brain to gather statistical information about words meaning in different context, about their pronunciation and how they are stringing together.
What is Anki
Anki is an application that manages flashcards, we use it because we believe spaced repetition is one of the best ways to learn something. Anki will help you to repeat each sentence many times with gradually increasing intervals, thus you step-by-step will be building up your confidence in using the Russian language. Anki can be installed on your phone, that allows you to learn everywhere and anytime.
For example, we have a small unit with a couple of dialogues or small piece of text as its basis. It contains a particular number of words, sentence models, and grammar rules. We take all sentence models and create multiple instances of them by substituting all possible words from the unit vocabulary. As a result, we obtain something like this.
Я вижу врача.
Врач видит меня.
Мы любим фермера.
Фермер любит врача.
Врачи любят нас.
We pack all these sentences into flashcards, creating few kinds of them, which aimed to develop different language skills like reading, understanding, listening and translating.
Also, an important part of learning Russian is using it, how are you going to use it if not through dialogues and texts. Of course, we included them in our decks, allowing you to generalize what you have learned.
