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.
As a highly declined language, Russian can be an intimidating wall of endings for beginner to intermediate learners. 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.
Core Russian vocab
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.
If you’ve used Geoglot’s Spanish Verb Blitz for iOS in school with your students, then we have some exciting news. The app can now be used with Apple’s iPad software for teachers and students, Schoolwork. That means you can now assign verb quizzes and track student achievement and progress directly in the app!
Top marks for Schoolwork
Apple are pushing their Schoolwork app and ClassKit environment as the next big thing in education, and rightly so. It makes it incredibly easy to send work to students and track progress and marks. Anything that makes teachers’ lives easier is a plus in our book, being educators ourselves. So we couldn’t wait to jump on the Schoolwork Apple cart!
New quizzes section
But it gets even more exciting than that. As well as Schoolwork compatibility, we’ve added a whole new Quizzes section to the app that anyone can use. It features graded pop quizzes with a focus on fundamental principle of Spanish grammar. These include:
Conjugation of key verbs ser/estar/tener/ir
Ser or estar?
Verb forms for narratives / storytelling (preterite first person singular)
We plan to add to these over time. If you have any suggestions or requests, please add them in the comments below – we’d love to hear from you!
