Alphabet?

Postby tormsen » July 2nd, 2008 2:01 pm

I hope you guys get the alphabet section running soon, I'm starting from nothing and I haven't got a firm grasp on the alphabet yet.

Hi tormsen,
you could check this out:
http://www.easyrussian.info/alphabet/

You can hear all the letters and the examples pronounced.

Hope this helps.

Cyrillic was really hard for me to learn, but I used a book called "Teach Yourself Beginner's Russian Script" and then I was able to at least read Russian, but cursive is too hard for me to read or write in Cyrillic.

Thanks for the link! I've been looking over it and listening everyday, and I've memorized a lot of it. :]

I have used the Japanese one and just ordered the Arabic one. The series have high standards, I believe.

I wrote this on another website in answer to someone fumbling with the alphabet:

Look ... you're psyching yourself out before you even start by making it such a big deal. It really isn't.

Here's a strategy:

1.) Find a website with some simple Russian cognates.

2.) Write'em up as flashcards. You don't need many -- you're not learning vocabulary here, you're trying to develop recognition. There are only 33 characters; a dozen well-chosen cards will cover them nicely.

Examples:

бар --- bar
телефон --- telephone
класс --- class

There ... 11 letters covered in 3 words. 1/3 of the alphabet conquered.


I'll get you started:
