While the platform is a bit confusing to navigate, the lessons are very well put together.
There is an almost endless array of material for you to work through and in general, explanations are very clear and concise.
I’d say that RussianPod101 is very good value for money considering just how many lessons you gain access to.
RussianPod101 really does have a lesson for every imaginable situation and so you can learn important words and phrases for every scenario.
There is a clear progression in terms of difficulty from the Absolute Beginner level up until the Advanced level
You get to hear a wide range of native speakers and a lot of the material introduces you to various aspects of Russian culture.
I DON’T LIKE…
I found the platform quite confusing to navigate and so it often took a while to get where I wanted.
The material could be a bit more engaging as you are never really asked to use the Russian you’ve learned.
The lack of speaking and writing practice means you would have to use it alongside other resources if you wanted to get fluent in Russian.
For the Basic subscription it costs $8/month while the Premium plan is $25/month and the Premium Plus plan is $47/month. There are various durations you can choose and if you sign up for longer, the monthly cost decreases.
