I looked on someones discussion and they were having trouble with the Russian alphabet. This got me thinking there are lots of people that struggle and so did I. After all Russian is extremely hard. You don't have 1 way of writing in Russian you have 2. Cyrillic and "Normal" -I say normal as it is normal for us but Cyrillic is normally the one they write with.

My first tip is write the Cyrillic letter on one side and what it sounds on the other side for example:

й- icratgaya

My 2nd tip is to sing it as it is fun and repetitive and you are more likely to remember it with a fun song. I would recommend "Russian Alphabet Song" and go to the third one down. This song is really helpful.

My 3rd tip is never give up :D

These are good tips. Learning a new alphabet is difficult, especially since there is basically no introduction to it in the Duolingo courses. You can also try finding other resources to help you out. I learned the Russian alphabet from another site that has since been lost.
