Russian Verb mastery made easy with our latest port to iOS!

Learning Russian and an iOS user? Now you can tap into the drill power of Russian Verb Blitz with our latest release on Apple’s Platform.

Never fear: the key aim of the app is to make learning tricky conjugations just a little more systematic – and fun! Android users have enjoyed the app for some time – and now iOS users can get a piece of the action too.

Learn, drill, repeat

The app doubles as both a reference and drill tool. Browse and check over a hundred conjugations across tenses. Mark off the verbs you’ve learnt. And then, drill them across a suite of games:

  • Infinitive quiz / grid quiz – test yourself on the basic meaning of verbs
  • Conjugation quiz – test your knowledge of person, number, tense and mood
  • Gapfill – drill those spellings!
  • Snap – test your translation skills

Each activity tracks your progress, too. At a glance, you can see which verbs you find trickiest – great for planning and focusing your studies.

With over a hundred core terms, the app is also a great way to learn and consolidate key vocabulary. Through regular practice, you can master some of the most common words in everyday Russian.
