The Russian alphabet

In Russian we write using a different alphabet: the Cyrillic alphabet. It is very easy to learn and this is the first step to learn how to read Russian. This video is divided into two parts:

  • The Russian alphabet: each letter will be pronounced once.
  • Examples: for each letter you will see an example of a Russian word that contains that letter.
