Learn Russian

Lär dig att tala ryska för att bli förstådd i Ryssland och länderna i det tidigare Sovjetblocket där några ord liknar varandra. Ryssland använder det kyrilliska alfabetet och har ganska komplicerad grammatik. Men uTalk gör det enkelt för dig att komma igång. Lyssna noga men eftersom betoningen i ord ändrar mening, t.ex. Замок (zamok) betyder "slott" eller "lås" beroende på vilken stavelse som är betonad.

Fun facts about Russian

Russian was the first language spoken in outer space (by Yuri Gagarin) and nowadays NASA astronauts have to learn Russian.

Russian has two colour blues- синий (dark blue) and голубой (light blue).

It's important to put the stress on the right syllable in Russian, otherwise the meaning can completely change. For example, the word замок (zamok) means 'castle' when the first syllable is stressed, but 'lock' when the second is stressed.
