Thanks for this! Very useful, seeing as I’ve just started on my Russian learning journey. I’m glad that my idea to learn the alphabet first is recommended by you. I have learnt the alphabet and am now putting it into practise by trying to decipher the турецкий гамбит, possibly a little bit too challenging for me, and maybe I should find a kids story book instead. Can you recommend any children’s stories? Also, I have a question about learning more than one language, at once. I’m currently a low-intermediate French learner, is it a good idea to start on another language or should I concentrate on one at a time? Thanks!
