    Hello Matthew,

    Thank you for your message.

    Russian Alphabet is based on the Greek Alphabet (We had to invent some letters because there were not enough Greek letters for Russian vocabulary).
    You will find two links about the Russian Alphabet at http://www.russianinderby.co.uk/
    And I just love BBC

    It's an interesting language to learn not so much because of the Cyrillic alphabet. In about a month you get quite used to the alphabet. What is more challenging, and interesting, is the grammar, which is very different from Romance languages, such as English. Because Russian uses endings on words to indicate their role in a sentence (e.g., subject, object, etc.), you can pretty much use any word order and the meaning is the same. It's just a lot of work to memorize all the endings for all the cases.

      The best way of learning The Russian alphabet is to find similarities with your native language and then learn examples with the letters that are new for you.
      As for the grammar, it is vital to learn it in parallel with your own language.
