In this lesson we will be looking at the Russian alphabet.

The Russian alphabet uses letters from the Cyrillic script.

It consists of 33 letters. There are 10 vowels, 21 consonants and 2 signs.

But don’t get overwhelmed just yet. Read the letters and try to pronounce them out loud.

If you are having trouble with the letters, I have attached an audio file of the Russian alphabet below:
