Why learn Russian in a Russian Language School?
Russian belongs to the Eastern-Slavonic group of languages included in the Indo-European linguistic family. Today’s written script has existed since 1918, but goes back to the original Cyrillic alphabet. It contains 33 letters, of which 21 represent consonant sounds, 6 are vowel sounds, and 4 are combinations of [j] and a vowel sound. There is also a soft (ь) and a hard sign (ъ), which are used only in combination with a consonant sound.
The Cyrillic alphabet was created in the 9th century based on the Greek written language but with additional letters.
