  1. I am doing Russian as a GCSE but I am really struggling.. I am finding writing in the printed form very hard and learning vocabulary.. Any tips? Thank you.

    • Hi, Meghan,

      Sorry about the late reply (site problems that went on for months). I hope GCSE is getting a bit easier. It’s simply a case of not giving up: you will get there in the end. For the vocabulary I suggest You put in your vocabulary lists and it generates games and tests for you. As for writing in the printed form, I’m not very good at it either :) Try to learn the handwriting then move on to the printed form. However, it would be acceptable to write in the printed form in the GCSE exam.


  2. Hi,
    First of all, thank you for all the resources. Could you possibly suggest an order in which to go through them?
    Thanks for your help!

    • The best way is to have topic-based approach, I think, rather than working though all the writing tasks, for example.

  3. This is such an amazing discovery! Thank you. I actually did an intensive Russian degree at University and spent several months in Russia, but after several years not using my skills and having no-one to talk to or practice Russian with, I have been desperately looking for a way of reminding and testing myself so that I don’t lose it all and everything on here looks absolutely perfect! I wish it was a much more accessible language – I can’t find anyone in my area or any local classes where I could use or revise Russian. And it’s such a beautiful language and such a fascinating country!

    • Thank you, Victoria, for your kind comment. Good luck with your studies. By the way, there’s plenty on Youtube to remind you of your time in Russian (TV programmes, for example).

  4. thank you so much for all of this vocabulary! I am currently starting GCSE Russian and this site has helped me immensely with revision and checking vocab. As there aren’t as many GCSE Russian help sites, this really has been a godsend! :) THANK YOU!

    • First of all, sorry it has taken forever to reply: I’ve had site problems and no comments came through for months. I’m so glad my site has helped you, India. I hope you get a good GCSE result; you sound very dedicated. Jane

  5. Amazing collection of vocab! If I memorise 100% of your website, will I know all the words need for GCSE Russian?
    Thanks for your help!

    • Hi, Michael,

      I’m glad you’re finding my site useful. With regard to the vocabulary needed for GCSE Russian, my advice is to look at the specification (syllabus, as it used o be called) for GCSE Russian on the Edexcel website. It’s over a year since I taught GCSE, as it’s being phased out at my school, but as far as I remember, there is a list of minimum core vocabulary in the specification. If you add to that what I have put on my website, I expect you will be fine.
