How to learn Russian by yourself? Start with an easy and free online course!We have adopted an objective and efficient approach to learn how to speak a language easily and quickly: we suggest you to start by memorizing words, phrases and practical expressions that you can use in everyday life and that will be useful when traveling.
Getting used to pronounce words out loud, numbers for instance, is an easy exercise that you can practice often and at anytime throughout the day.
It will help you to get used to the sounds of your chosen language and thus make it more familiar.
And once your holidays have begun, in Moscow, St. Petersburg or elsewhere in Russia, you will be surprised how familiar and easy to understand it will seem.
Furthermore, using a pocket dictionary is always useful, particularly during a trip. It enables you to find the translation of new words and enrich your vocabulary.
Why speak Russian while traveling?Are you fascinated by Russian literature? Why not read it in its original form? You will be surprised by the stunning nuances and subtleties in the works of great novelists such as Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Ivan Turgenev.
A European giantWith more than 145 million inhabitants, Russia is the largest country on the planet, with a territory spanning north Asia as well as Europe. This vastness explains its varied landscapes, which go from Mount Elbrus - the highest peak in Europe - to Lake Baikal, through metropolises such as Moscow and the icy landscapes of Siberia. If the tourist attractions are numerous, so the economic ones are legion. Ranked in 16th place worldwide in terms of GDP, Russia is part of the BRICS and is one of the world's leading exporters of mineral and energy resources.
Having played an important role in European political, geographical and social issues since time immemorial, the country was a powerhouse in the twentieth century, allowing it to become a pioneer in many fields, most notably in space, the launch of Sputnik and the first man in space being prime examples.
A powerful cultureRussian literature is recognized worldwide, thanks to heavyweight writers such as Nikolai Gogol, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Leo Tolstoy and Anton Chekhov, acclaimed throughout the world.
It is also impossible to forget the great stars of Russian dance, such as Anna Pavlova and Mikhail Baryshnikov, and the famous dance schools, in particular the Bolshoi ballet.
Are you drawn to its booming business world, its dazzling landscapes and rich culture? Don't wait a moment longer to dive into the Russian language!
Make a success of your stay in Russia and Russian-speaking countriesWhether you are going to spend a few days with friends for a leisure trip or if you are on a business trip, nothing will be more useful to you than to be able to slip a few words in the language of your interlocutors, who will appreciate your effort and will be certainly more willing to help.
How to succeed in having good pronunciation within a week to a month?With more than 280 million speakers, Russian is present in more than 20 countries in the world, being the official language of 8 states and regions. Written with 33 letters of the cyrillic alphabet, the language is accentuated, where the accent conditions the pronunciation of vowels, since the unaccented ones are short and reduced. Another feature is the fact that most consonants represent two phonemes, one velarized and the other palatalized. The written form of the vowel which follows it determines the phoneme used.
Roughly speaking, Russian is written as it is pronounced, with some exceptions.
We invite you to listen to the pronunciation of the letters by clicking on the following link: Russian alphabet with audio.
