If you have toyed with the idea of Russian lessons, we can’t blame you! Tackling a language such as Russian won’t be as simple as just knowing a few handy phrases for a quick vacation. But the payoff will be so rewarding, as it opens the door to a world of new experiences, and is a highly marketable language in business, academics, and government.
Additionally, if you are traveling to Russia, it is very important to speak at least a little of the language. Only 30% of Russians are able to speak or understand English, which is very unique as English is more common among natives in other countries.
Russian has only 33 characters in the Cyrillic alphabet, which is unlike the hundreds or thousands of characters in writing systems for other complex languages like Mandarin Chinese. Once you’ve mastered the structure of the characters, learning to match them with sounds will not be as difficult as many of the sounds mimic those in the English alphabet.

I've been using Rosetta Stone for years to gain basic competency in multiple languages including German, French, Italian, and recently Chinese and Russian. Starts with the very basics teaching basic vocabulary and grammar without any memorization. I've even impressed some locals in my travels with pronunciation and fluency. This is an excellent place to start if interested in starting to learn a new language or brushing up on one learned years ago.-Gladys
I am trying out Rosetta Stone, to see if it will help out with the correct grammar and conversation (as well as learning how to read and write the language). Within a week, I can already master the sentence structure and start learning the grammar with particles. The local community is so excited to see that I am starting to learn their language. Out of all the language learning tools out there, I 100% recommend Rosetta Stone!-Sy
I've tried other language learning software but Rosetta Stone is much more challenging and professional. I don't have to worry about earning points and following the leader board. I'm trying out the ninety day trial to learn some Russian and I will pay for the privilege once I reach the end of the trial.-Jim
