Russian FlashCards 2.4
A powerful Mac OS X desktop application designed to help you learn over 4400 Russian words and phrases through simple translation tests
Before starting the exercises, you might want to add more words in the app’s vocabulary database. To do this, just load more ‘wordfiles’, which are basically groups of words organized into categories (cuisine, months, family, business, etc.). By default, Russian FlashCards comes with 3 word files.
Although the number of wordfiles is quite large, you can even create your own groups of words. You start by specifying the wordfile name, adding the words you want to include, the categories and then the English / Russian translation.
Furthermore, in the Word exercise, you have to select the right translation (from a list of 5) of a Russian word. The Meaning activity is exactly like the Word exercise, only that the given word is in English.
Furthermore, the Spelling exercise lets you type the Russian translation of English words using an on-screen keyboard. Last but not least, the Listening module provides native Russian pronunciations of words and you must select the right English translation.
In each test you take, you can only practice one wordfile. What’s more, you can use either 10 words or all the words in the wordfile. Other options regarding the tests include changing the review mode and selecting, selecting the required exercises and changing the audio volume.
All in all, the Russian FlashCards application is a extensive and easy-to-use application for learning numerous Russian words. Although words are not put into context, you can learn their meaning and pronunciation using just word-for-word translation and listening tests.
