today is my birthday and first day on Duolingo.

well, my birthdays tomorrow, but today is the party, and i'm now learning one of the most beautiful languages (in my opinion), Russian for a birthday present. but my mother has a migraine and it is raining outside. so the pizza is going to be delivered here and i'm going to open presents in my moms room. but i'm a little confused about Duolingo. it's partially hard, but that's just because i'm learning a new language. and so far, i'm only LEVEL 4! 4! but that's just a normal thing on Duolingo probably. so the reason i'm learning Russian is because my aunt who by the way goes by my first name, and that's one of the reasons why i go by my middle name, is adopting a Russian girl. her name is Diana (pronounced Deeona not Dyana) she taught me a bit about Russian. my dad knows a little bit of Russian, so it's a little fun since i am using his computer while he's gone. so my mother is almost 100% fluent in Spanish, so i'm learning a separate language. it'll be kinda confusing when I communicate to her in Russian, and she talks to me in Spanish.

Привет! Happy Birthday, as well! I haven't done as much Russian as I would have liked (I only have three skills done so far), but I found that running through a Quizlet with all of the Russian alphabet and its English equivalents helped me a lot. I don't know much Russian quite yet, but I can read it correctly, phonetically speaking.

I don't know how much of the alphabet you know, but here is this if you want to use it. https://quizlet.com/104061973/russian-alphabet-flash-cards/

С днем ​​рождения! I hope that's correct. I just did my first Russian lesson so I have no idea and just google translated it.

Awesome! French can be hard though because at my school we have to do a speaking bit and when it comes to most social interactions I'm the most awkward person ever and I mean the exact conversation i had 1m ago I suddenly don' t know.
