Russian is a Slavic language spoken by 170 million people world-wide. Most people living in Russia use it as a first language, and many other people in Central Asia and other parts of the former Soviet Union know it as a second language.

Russian has a fairly simple verb system - past, present, future - except for one thing: verbs come in pairs called perfective and imperfective and there's no simple rule telling which two go together. Nouns and adjectives have six cases and three genders. The pronoun ?? is the plural of ?? and is also used, as in French, for polite address to one person.

One important note: the handwritten Russian alphabet looks much different than the printed alphabet. Russians never use the printed alphabet when writing by hand.

Pronunciation guide

Consonants and vowels in Russian (and Slavic generally) are soft (palatalized) or hard. Consonants are pronounced soft if followed by a soft vowel or the soft sign, else hard. Some consonants are always soft or always hard, regardless of the following vowel.

Russian phrasebook

Vowels

a ah 
like father
e yeh 
like yet
? yo 
like yore; always stressed, else it reverts to e
? ee 
like seen
o oh 
like boat when stressed; when unstressed same as a
? oo 
like cartoon
? yi-RIH 
say ee but move the tongue to the back of the mouth
? eh obb-or-OHT-nuh-yeh 
like pet
? yoo 
like you
? yah 
like Ja in German

The vowels are listed in alphabetical order. Please notice that the vowels also occur in hard/soft pairs: a/?, ?/e, o/?, ?/?, y/?.

Russian, like English, reduces unstressed vowels. When vowels are unstressed, they are often pronounced like sofa (if hard) or moiety (if soft). There are occasional silent letters, but not nearly as many as in English.
