How to Perfect Your Russian Pronunciation with Rocket Record

You can sound like you ARE a native Russian speaker when you use Rocket Record, the pronunciation tool from Rocket Russian! (Note that for true voice recognition you will need to use the Chrome browser.)

Try it here with the transcript​ from one of our Interactive Audio Lessons:

Rocket Record allows you to listen to the way native speakers say hundreds of Russian words and phrases. Then you can record yourself and accurately compare your speech with that of the native speaker.

It really is a fantastic way to learn Russian by increasing the amount of Russian vocabulary you know, and at the same time massively improving your Russian pronunciation and accent. Rocket Record is great for your confidence!

Virtually every Russian word and phrase in these lessons uses our Rocket Record voice comparison technology to get your pronunciation sounding as close as possible to a native Russian speaker.

How to Understand Spoken Russian with Testing

Most of our Russian lessons take advantage of the Testing section, which contains our exclusive testing tools. Testing has three testing components, Hear It Say It!, Write It!, and Know It! all scientifically designed to enhance your recall and understanding of spoken Russian.

1. Hear it Say it!

Training your ear for Russian can be one of the things that Russian learners find the hardest to master. That’s why we came up with Hear It Say It!

Here’s how Hear lt Say It! works. A randomly selected audio track from within each lesson is played. After listening to the track you’re prompted to record yourself saying the word, compare the way you say it to the Russian speaker, and rate how well you understand what the speaker was saying. A very powerful tool to tune your ear to spoken Russian!

2. Write it!

It's one thing being able to pronounce Russian words correctly, it's quite another figuring out how those sounds turn into written words.

Write It! is the self-testing tool that lets you find out how well developed your Russian ear really is. Just listen to the native speaker saying a word or phrase, then try to write it correctly in the space provided. There's a special character keyboard available if you need it, so you can get it exactly right.

When you're done click reveal, and you get to see how well you did, and get a rating for that word or phrase.

Test your writing skills with Write It! here:

3. Know it!

Now, all the training in the world won’t help you if someone is talking to you in Russian and your mind freezes when it’s your turn to speak! That’s why we developed Know It! The self-testing tool that really puts you on the spot!

Know It! pulls randomly selected English words and phrases out of each lesson and prompts you to record yourself saying the Russian translation, compare yourself to the Russian speaker, and then rate how well you did! You really need to know your stuff for this one but the benefits are huge in maximizing how quickly you can come up with the right thing to say when someone is speaking Russian to you!

For a real challenge try out Know It!:

Who am I?

Zdrahstvuite, my name’s Natalya, and I’m the host of Rocket Russian. I come from the beautiful country of Russia, which means Russian is my native language. That also means that I know just how hard it can be to learn a new language, because I’ve been there learning English. Together with my English speaking colleague, Ivan, I want to help you to speak and understand Russian while cutting your learning time in half.

I’ve travelled the world over and have found that languages are a great way to meet people and discover new things. I really want to make your Russian learning experience rewarding and fun!

My goal, just like Rocket Languages’, is to help you reach your goal.

Natalya
