Russian grammar. Why learn it?

Learning the Russian grammar can seem like the hardest and most boring task when you start learning the language. Most Russian teachers would start by teaching you the grammar rules. That’s probably why you hated doing Russian grammar exercises in school. We don’t blame you. We feel the same way.

Though it’s not the first thing you have to learn, knowing the Russian grammar has its importance and sooner or later you will have to deal with it. The secret is taking courses designed to teach you grammar without the need to study endless rules. How? By absorbing the basic Russian grammar rules while listening to natives having real conversations. That’s how kids learn. At the age of 5, kids are already fluent in their native language. How can this be? They don’t even know what a verb is at that age. It’s because they hear their parents speaking. That’s the best approach for you as well. That’s exactly how we, at Mondly, approach learning the Russian grammar and millions of people worldwide appreciate our innovative app. By listening to natives, you will know advanced Russian grammar rules to use in real life conversations even if you never studied the rules themselves.

Russian grammar exercises can be fun

Have you ever thought you can love learning grammar? Learning the Russian grammar doesn’t have to be neither boring nor hard. That’s exactly why our world class linguists have created fun and friendly Russian grammar exercises so you can enjoy learning Russian.

Inside the app, you will find 3 different sections dedicated to learning the Russian grammar online. Each section consists of 7 or 8 grammar lessons that take around 5 minutes each to complete.

Russian grammar exercises for real life situations

We believe Russian grammar exercises should get you ready for real life conversations. In school, you were typically forced to memorize conjugations, pronouns and verbs. This makes learning hard and, even after a few years, you might not be able to have a real conversation. Millions of people around the world are in this exact situation.

That’s why our language experts created a language learning experience where you can practice Russian grammar naturally, by building real sentences anchored in real life situations. Order food in a restaurant. Have a casual chat with a native speaker about your day. Explore ways of talking about the books you read. These are all grammar exercises created around certain themes in order to boost your learning.

Want to learn certain conjugations? With our on demand conjugation table you can click on verbs during any exercise and you will be able to see their conjugations. The present, past and future tense are now all at your fingertips. What’s even better, depending on your grammar level, you can choose to learn Russian grammar for beginners, intermediate grammar or jump to the advanced Russian grammar exercises. No matter your level of Russian, you will get the most out of your learning with Mondly.

Did you know?

There are only 2 cases when Russians use capital letters: at the beginning of a sentence and when writing a proper name like the name of a person or city. Contrary to other languages, Russians don’t capitalize months (“январь” = January), the days of the week (“понедельник” = Monday), nationalities ( “францу́женка” = French woman) or formal titles ( “господи́н” = sir, “профе́ссор” = professor).

To make the Russian language easier to learn, you can use a so called stress. Stress looks similar to accents in French and, like in Chinese, can totally change the meaning of a word. For example, “мука́” means flour, but “му́ка” means torture; “замо́к” means lock while “за́мок” means castle. Words like the ones just mentioned are called homographs. This means they are spelled the same, but the stress gives them a different meaning. While this stress sign is helpful for beginners, it is never used by native Russians in writing. Advanced Russian speakers understand from context the meaning of every word without the need of stress signs.
