As you can see in the video, a Russian word (with its part of speech) is presented, followed by a card with that word used in an example sentence. Later, cards are presented English first to test your retention of the materials.

With over 2,000 flashcards, this Anki deck contains all of the headwords from the Beginning Learner’s Russian Dictionary. The deck includes reverse-cards, bringing the actual total number of cards to over 4,000. These reverse-cards show the English translation first, forcing you to see how well you can recall the Russian. See the sample images to get a better understanding of the cards’ layouts.

Audio, recorded by native speakers of Russian, accompanies each card.

There are four ways you can study the cards:

  1. Alphabetical order: By default, cards will be presented in alphabetical order. (You can check your settings under Options to see if it is set to Alphabetical Order.) Each headword from the dictionary will be presented, followed by its example sentence(s).
  2. Random order: Click Options and set the order to “show new cards in random order.” You will see both headwords and example sentences. If you only want to study headwords (and not example sentences), suspend all cards tagged “example”.
  3. Only specific words: If you prefer to focus on specific words, you can suspend all cards (so that they are not presented) and unsuspend only those you which to be tested on. To suspend all cards: Browse → Current Deck → highlight all cards → Suspend. Then search for cards you want to be tested on and click “suspend” to unsuspend them. Unfortunately, Anki has some search limitations. You may not be able to find a Russian word because accent marks have been written to show stress. To get around this, download the add-on “Ignore accents in browser search” (code: 1924690148), which adds a check-box next to the search bar. For more tips on searching in Anki, click here.

Names: By default, personal names have been suspended, as you may not find studying these cards useful. You can search for the tag “name” and unsuspend them, if desired.

Informal ‘You’: When studying the English-Russian cards, you would not be able to tell if the Russian translation will be using forms of the informal singular ты or the formal/plural вы. When “you” refers to the informal pronoun, it is marked with an asterisk
