Russian Alphabet Lesson

sasha_alphabet_large

In this lesson you are going to learn all about the Russian alphabet! Russians write with an alphabet called the Cyrillic script. You will notice that many Cyrillic letters look similar to Latin letters (we use the Latin alphabet), because both alphabets descend from the Greek alphabet.

This lesson will teach you how to read, pronounce, and write Russian words! But you must also study! Make sure you read this lesson from Page 1 to 23!!

  1. Hi! You have an awesome lesson here. I’m Russian myself, and it makes me kind of proud to see foreign people study Russian. I esp. loved the handwriting part, as many people I know are simply overwhelmed by it, haha! Esp. Americans since they’re so used to printing. If you don’t mind, I’d add my two cents, maybe they will be useful for you and your readers. 🙂

    1) (About writing ‘O’) “If this letter comes before or , do not join them
    together” ← it’s not true, small o’s always connect to other letters (unless totally unconnectable, like after small ‘б’). There are two basic ways of connecting o’s: upper and lower. Example: http://referat-na5.ucoz.ru/_nw/0/79068775.jpg (lower connection: second line, upper: all others). Of course, people often connect o’s in different ways, but this is the standard.

    2) Small strokes under ‘ш’ and above ‘т’ are to give distinction between these two letters. In many handwritings they look identical. Of course, it’s also used in situaltions like this or this, but it’s just occasional.
