RE: Russian language: no more bullshit

Good to know. I agree that Duolingo is far more for simply recognition of words. For Russian, I'm working my way up but remembering extremely little in what is new. Rather, it's more to help me prevent attrition. Tangentially related, my Spanish is much worse and Duolingo barely helps, because it doesn't drill in the words enough. The click to create sentences is not impressionable enough on the brain. I find the best parts are where it gives me the blank field to translate from one language to another, but those might be 2-3 times per lesson. The rest is all sentence clicking.

WRT Michel Thomas and Pimsleur, I'm simply going to finish both. It's clear to me now that Duolingo, MT, and Pimsleur combined is pretty much the exact same (maybe just a smidgen more) as the one year of intensive collegiate Russian classes I just finished.
