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.

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.

The app is available from the iTunes App Store right now at $0.99 / £0.99 / €1,09. Click here to visit Russian Verb Blitz on the App Store!

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.

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?
  • Irregular preterites
  • Verb forms for narratives / storytelling (preterite first person singular)
