Dear Russian learners, I redesigned my Russian grammar tables and re-uploaded them on SlideShare. Feel free to download them and print them out for your convenience:
You can also order hard copies - printed and carefully laminated, 4 x 6 inches (11 x 16 cm) - at my store on Facebook.
The hard copies are good for keeping them handy in your bag or use them as bookmarks. The price for one card is as low as $1.5 + shipping. The price for set of 4 is $5.
Happy language learning!
Russian adequate translation for “too bad” is очень жаль (lit. I feel very sad, I feel sorry).

During the Russian lesson
me: Was there in this text anything that looked particularly weird for you?
student: You mean more weird than Russian itself?

Update: I’ve added a Russian virtual keyboard to the course, so those who doesn’t have a Russian keyboard can still type in new words.
If you have any suggestions what should be changed or added to the course, please do not hesitate to contact me! I really appreciate your critics!
