Much of language learning requires the student to learn words, sounds and patterns by heart. In the same way that a body builder improves their strength, the language learner needs to regularly flex their language muscles.

This book will help you revise Russian verbs. The verbs are presented in groups by subject and learning objectives to help with memorisation.

Version 0.7 has just been released. Writing a book is harder than it looks. I hoped to have the grammar section finished by now, but the section on transitive verbs took me longer than expected.

Expected items for 0.8

  • Reflexive verbs grammar section
  • Finalise the grammar section
  • Perfective counterparts of prototypes in chapter 2
  • Start a cadence of verb releases

After 0.8 is released, I hope that future effort will be finishing the verbs and correcting the text.
