Two New Languages
I've started two new languages today: Esperanto and Russian. After completing 5 questions in russian, I already think the cryllic alphabet is going to be a challenge to learn. Can someone give me some tips on how to learn it quickly?
Esperanto Tips are also welcomed.
I'd suggest to focus on one language at a time. To master Cyrillic alphabet, you need time and practice, and you'll get more of both if you don't mix Russian with Esperanto.

http://en.esperanto.org.nz/how-to-learn-esperanto/how-to-type-esperanto-characters I personally use the Canadian Multilingual Standard keyboard layout, but I have not been able to access the special u character on my US keyboard. I have been cutting and pasting that one. At least I can access all the ĝĉĵĥŝ characters. I like the International keyboard layouts, because I can easily type the English as well as the extra characters I need and then I can switch keyboard layouts with a CTRL+number for languages like Russian. I think I will download the new Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator through which I should be able to add that missing character.
Go to YouTube and look for cyrilic alphabet and you should find some good video lessons.
Cyrillic alphabet is my national alphabet, Serbian language. We say, write as you speak, and read as it is writen. Perhaps you should listen a lot for the first time.
