Learn the basics of the Russian language!
"Learning a new language is like finding a new soul" - Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (Russian Novelist)
Russian for Beginners is a short course for learners with minimal or no knowledge of the Russian language. At the end of the course learners should be able to perform basic tasks such as exchanging greetings, asking simple questions, reading and writing basic sentences. The course also aims to enable learners to develop an appreciation of cultural diversity.
The Russian language is a little-known language but a very rich one and you will be delighted to learn it. Today, over 220 million people around the world speak Russian. Just imagine, every 20th person in the world speaks this wonderful language. Being the richest language in the world, it contains five million words. For example, in English there are 180,000 - 200,000 words, whereas in the Russian language only 200,000 basic words.
Russian is written in Cyrillic, an alphabet developed in the ninth century from ancient Greek. The Russian language and Cyrillic alphabet are different to all European languages. Every sound in it is pronounced - and pronounced as it is, which is not found in any other language.
