I recently started Russian (new course!) and am going full-on with their real alphabet, keyboard, and everything. It is REALLY hard, mainly because the alphabet is so different and I am not used to their pronunciation of things. I just want to say that I watched this video and it really fixed all my problems. I hope this will help some of you as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhrSpf8kaqQ All it is their alphabet and how to pronouns each letter. Not much, but believe me---it helps a lot.

Going to look at that now, thank you. .... That is great, I have difficulty hearing but can hear that clearly.

To be honest i think Russian alphabet is one of the easier if you know latin alphabet. Just take a look at arabic, japanese, hindu or something else. Russian alphabet is very close to latin.

Bonus: If you speak any slavic language, you should know how to pronounce all of the letters already :)

Yeah... unfortunately, I fall into none of those categories. Interesting, though. I've heard that knowing Latin helps you learn any language because of all the roots and, in some cases, the alphabet as you said.

Thanks for sharing the link. I really appreciate the way Duo eases us in to the new language, but for me personally, it is helpful to get a quick overview of the entire alphabet. Now I need to watch this a few more times to help it sink in. :) Thanks again!

Nice video! I found this one earlier, a Russian alphabet song that has helped me, but I didn't think to share. Here's the youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJNxNeg5_aQ

Cool! Do you know if that's the tune they sing it to--like the way we always sing ours to "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"?
