The Cyrillic Alphabet

The Russian language is written in the Cyrliic script. It is not necessary to learn Cyrillic if you are solely interested in speaking Russian. However it is advisable and not particularly difficult.

Surface Languages allows you to learn Russian words and phrases either using Cyrillic or by using a romanized version of the Cyrillic aplhabet. This approximates the Russian sounds using the roman alphabet.

The Russian Cyrillic (originally based on the Greek) alphabet retains many similarities to the Greek alphabet as can be seen on the Greek pages.
