Hello guys, i'm Giuseppe, i'm Italian and i'm 22yo. I was so so courious about learning russian and a friend told me about duolingo. I have to say, russian is catchy AF and i'm spendig hours doing exercises and taking notes on my little book. But, i don't know. I usually start from the alphabet than to the verbs and when i get some skills i just start to write and talk basical phrases. Duolingo starts from some words then go through some phrases. Now, i've started yesterday and I know is too soon, but what can i do for learn pronunciations and alphabet?

I read on a blog that i can watch some kids show, so, start spam ahah.

PS: i dived in the cirillic world since i started and i can write some stupid phrases hahaha but i feel soo illiterate.

TY for all the answers

What I've been doing is simply placing sticky notes everywhere around the house (and office) with Russian translations for that object.

Hi there! Well done on your desire to learn Russian! You will love it! Really the easiest thing for me was to make sure I learned the alphabet fluently before i even began learning the language itself. I made flashcards, notes on paper and took them around with me, looked at tutorials. etc. It's all about exposure. I also recommend pronunciation videos as that is key!

I have linked you up with some very useful websites, If you haven't found them already ;) Best of luck to you!

http://learnrussian.rt.com/ http://www.russianforeveryone.com/ http://www.russianlessons.net/ https://www.youtube.com/user/AntoniaRomaker/videos - she is very good, and it's good to listen to practice spoken Russian.

Someone posted about Russian Textbooks and websites. There's a lot of great links on there. Memrise also has a good basic Russian course to go along with Duolingo. Hope this helps and have fun!

Make flashcards, make practice quizzes, listen to pronunciations, and try to pronounce it as closely as possible to the actual sound. Many people assume that the hardest thing about Russian is Cyrillic, but in reality, people learn it in about a week. Try multiple methods and find one that works the best for you.

I give you the best advice for learning Russian: learn Deutsch. It is Latin, have 4 cases (Rus has 6), articles like in English, it has different genders for inanimate words like Rus, It has starting matching of an adjective and a noun, and it has almost Rus pronounce. It is the best way to start learn Russian.
