Authors' notesEdit

Right. It must have happened sooner or later. The creation of the Russian course for English speakers has now been launched. Well, actually, it was launched two weeks ago but due to some issues of the new course editor, it is only these days that we have started adding more than a few test sentences ...


On October 28, 2015, it was announced that the course was completed and would be released into beta within a few days. As of 14 February 2016, the course had 630,000 users. [2]
