Very impressed with high percentages on all letters. I like the way the letters are transliterated using the common English spellings. I never learned Russian but I did learn Cyrillic which was helpful in decyphering station names on the Moscow subway.

I was hoping for Ъ or Ь :)

Hmm, since they're both silent letters, it would be a serious challenge to come up with "right" answers!

We left off ы and и and й because they sound so similar, especially to English-speaking ears, and they can be transliterated into so many overlapping answers. As you say, that would just leave щ, х, е and ё, but we don't mind leaving a few letters out!

Jerry298, you seem to be an expert in Russian and I am wondering whether you could teach me the basics as I know very little and using Duolingo app is confusing me. If you have any social media capable of typing privately e.g. Skype, Discord etc then I would much appreciate it (Unfortunately I will not be able to pay you).
