Russian Cyrillic Cursive: A Struggle
I read Cyrillic really well, and can guess a lot to derive meanings from sentences without translating. But one thing about Cyrillic has not ceased to frustrate and puzzle me: Cursive. At first, I didn't even know such thing existed. But obviously…it does. I guess it makes sense to look more refined as in English. But the problem with Cyrillic is all of the letters seem to look impossibly alike. I got 8/10 on this test, but if you asked me to spell all of those out I would have a very hard time. And what ic someone's handwriting is not neat and the letters become indistinguishable? Do most Russians just jot down things in cursive? I hope not:).

Oh, c'mon) I think you don't have to learn how to write/read any Russian texts written in italics (unless you move to Russia or any other Russian speaking country). And I heard you looked for me?) Rofl. I've been busy so I couldn't chat.
Well, it would be good if I didn't, LOL). And I'm assuming you've graduated now? And have a job as a diplomat?
Nah) I've mentioned that I'm on the fourth year of university and I work at home via internet)
Well, give it a few years, and you will be president)))."Belieeeeeve me, I know presidents."
Appreciate! I am sure you will be capable to read Russian books very soon, so you can feel all the beauty of Russian language))
Well, I see you remember the things) And what about you? What occupation do you want?)) Btw you are perceptive haha)
Same here) As I've mentioned, I want to learn Roman languages + Indonesian. So eventually I wanna speak 8 languages: Russian and Ukrainian (native), English (fluent), Spanish and Italian (in process), French, Portuguese and Indonesian. Gonna learn 'em at any cost!))
Indonesian - because I like this country and I wanna travel there someday. Also it has practical sense (more than 200 million speakers). And I wanna know at least 1 non-European language. So you learn Ukrainian? Do you like it? Have you already heard any Ukrainian texts or songs?
Latvian is not slavic tho) And I don't listen to either Russian or Ukrainian music so I can't share any song. You can try to find it on your own if you want)
No, I'm not from West Ukraine, and I can't tell if there more people can speak English or not)
You can start on your work towards this by watching all of the State of the Union addresses from the last 5 years:)))
Well I suppose instead you can create alliances between living rooms as an interior designer)))
Well, I still remember the names of all of my friends when I was 3...I hardly forget a thing:). Thank you))). I want to work in international business, probably act as the connection between companies in different countries as a spokesperson.

Thank you so much Sergey! I hope so). It seems language is a lifelong pursuit!))
That's awesome!! Why Indonesian? My list:
Right now: Spanish (close to fluent) and Russian, followed by Italian and Ukrainian, followed by Portuguese and Polish, followed by French and Romanian, followed by German (Total: 10) :)Give or take some like Hungarian, Croatian, and Bulgarian which are related to Russian.
As you can see, I've been experimenting with both Ukrainian and Polish as they are closely tied with Russian; I think it will make it easier to learn many slavic languages like Latvian, Croatian, Slovenian, Ukrainian, etc. after I have mastered Russian:). I find it easy mostly, and yes of course I like it! I don't think I've heard any songs in it though)))
Oh sorry, I think I was thinking Serbian...are you from West Ukraine? Supposedly more people there know how to speak English).
