Learn by doing. Navigate along streets and sidewalks, check into your hotel, and find the nearest grocery store.

Your language-learning journey will take you through actual traveling scenarios to enhance comprehension and retention. Board a bus, step onto a subway or into a taxi, take a break at the local coffee shop, or visit Red Square to meet friends.

The first time you sign-in, you’ll select one of 15 destinations
in either Moscow or Saint Petersburg:
Each destination expands into multiple scenes to keep users engaged and challenged. Click Red Square, for example, and follow a simple route from your hotel through the local streets and onto a bus to the subway station, finally arriving at your chosen destination.
Click characters and objects along your path to hear, repeat, and learn Russian words and sentences. Sequential scenes are thoughtfully designed to help users build on their existing vocabulary, retain knowledge through repetition, and tour the country logically within familiar traveling scenarios.
The expansive built-in dictionary provides essential language learning information and includes hundreds of the most common Russian words. Just a click away, the Language Metropolis dictionary helps users better retain new words by combining text definitions and pronunciations with character and object images plus spoken guides for authentic articulation.

Acquaint yourself with fun-loving characters who travel along with you and offer guidance on language pronunciation. All dialogs are recorded by professional narrators and actors in a state-of-the-art sound studio. (Click on any of the characters right now to hear them speak.)
