Frequently Asked Questions

Will you be adding more to the tutorial?
No, probably not. My purpose was to teach the Russian alphabet,
and I think the tutorial does a decent job at it.
So, where can I find out more about Russian?
Go to the resources
page. The pages
at Bucknell University are wonderfully well written; I think you'll
like them a lot.
How can I type Russian in my word processor?
at Bucknell University's Russian site.
Can you tell me how to say/write fill-in-the-blank in Russian?
Sorry, no. I am not a native speaker of Russian, and any answer
I give you is an educated guess at best. I'd rather not risk making
a mistake, especially when the request is preceded by, "I want to make
a gift for an important occasion for my best friend in the whole
world," or "I want to get a tattoo..."
How did you get interested in Russian? / Are you Russian?
I'm not Russian, nor have I any Russian relatives. I'm an American from
Peoria, Illinois. When I was in high school and college, I was
interested in Russian because it was "exotic" and not something that
everyone else was doing. I never had the time to study it in depth until
I moved to California and was able to take evening classes at De Anza
May I download your tutorial?
Sure, go ahead. Just visit the download page
and follow the instructions. Then you can use the tutorial without
needing to be connected to the internet.
If you do make a copy on your own website,
I'd appreciate knowing about it.
