is drastic yes Atlanta welcome to

Russian part 101.com alpha this made it

the fastest easiest and most fun way to

learn the Russian Cyrillic alphabet

alphabet in the previous lesson we

continued introducin­g some false friends

Russian letters that look like letters

of the English alphabet but sound

completely different we've already

learned several but do you remember how

to read and write them taking the time

to review the lessons will be the key to

learning how to write in Russian in this

lesson we'll finish up with our false

friends then we'll learn a few more

words for you to add to your notebook

ready to learn then let's go our first

letter is s it looks identical to the

English upper and lowercase C right of

course the Russian s does not sound like

the English C although I guess sometimes

it does I mean the English seek and

sometimes make an S sound so it's kind

of like a mostly false friend right

here's the uppercase

and the lowercase

the cursive uppercase s looks like this

it's similar to the English cursive C

but thankfully it's a bit simpler than

most Russian letters uppercase s is a

single stroke which connects easily to

the next letter without lifting your pen

a pencil

as for the lowercase s it's identical to

the uppercase except which size now

we'll write them

and the lowercase

the second letter we'll learn in this

lesson looks pretty familiar ooh

as you can see it looks similar to in

English why with just small difference­s

of course it doesn't sound like Y at all

but at least it's easy to pronounce all

makes an O sound 100% of the time here's

how to write the printed versions

and the lowercase

now let's take a look at how to write

ooh in cursive the uppercase version

looks like this as you can see the

cursive version of O looks similar to

the English why it's written in a single

stroke and connects easily to the next

letter

while the uppercase version does not dip

below the line the lowercase version

does now it's time to write it

and the lowercase

you

let's learn one more letter the third

letter we'll learn in this lesson should

look pretty familiar to ha as you can

see it looks identical to the English X

but of course it doesn't sound like X

actually this will be new sound for most

English speakers ha makes a hotter H

sound hook ha makes this sound 100% of

the time

here's how to write the printed versions

and the lowercase

as you can see the cursive version of HA

is not at all similar to the cursive

version of the English X it's written in

two strokes and connects easily to the

next letter lowercase ha looks exactly

like the uppercase version but just a

little smaller let's write it

and the lowercase

you

and that's all Wow create job today we

finally made the last of our false

friends will continue learning more

letters in the next lesson but for now

let's practice using these letters in

some new words first up is a word that

uses two of our new letters try reading

it a lot it should be easy

it's pronounced Saha and means sugar

Russians love tea with sugar so you'll

see this word a lot now let's try write

in it

we'll use lowercase letters soccer

now let's try writing two sentences as

you know from a previous lesson on means

he Turek min sterg as in someone from

Turkey so the first sentence means he is

Turkish in the second sentence we see

yeast which is an important word meaning

eats and halwa is a popular Sweden

Russia originally from the Middle East

in English it's called halwa the second

sentence means he is eating halwa now

let's try to write it will start each

sentence properly with an uppercase

letter

on to rock on yes calvo now it's time

for sweet Lana's insides you probably

realize this but the order we're

learning the alphabet is not actually

the correct order we're using this order

because it's easier to learn but just be

aware that it's not the way Russian

children learn it or how a Russian would

recite the alphabet in the next alphabet

Medea lesson we'll be introducin­g some

interestin­g new letters that are going

to be completely unfamiliar to you

are you excited yet paka paka

you
