I live in Russia, and speak awful Russian. It's much easier to learn than Japanese or Korean were. I suck because I'm lazy.

Anyway, I'd humour you but don't have a Russian keyboard.

I manage a language school in Moscow. And see, I could type that in Russian for you if I had a Russian keyboard. Just imagine that I wrote it in Russian.

Can't you use the control panel to set what keyboard layout your system uses? In Windows-based systems, at least, you can toggle among various keyboards. I, for example, have a US keyboard but can easily toggle it to Russian:

Нет, в этом форуме нет ни одного человека, который владеет русским языком. :) (Note to self: next time, double-check which case владеть takes. :) )

I've also got a toggle for a keyboard layout that makes all the Central European characters easy to type, so I can type names like Ana Ivanović, Agnieszka Radwańska, or Lucie Šafářová properly. :wavey:

There's also the problem of making certain you've got a reasonably phonetic layout for Russian, or else learn the Soviet-era keyboard layout. :(

I'm not a Russian, but I'm quite good in terms of speaking/reading. Russian is important for my business requirements, and been there 5 times since 2000s. One of the most thrilling memories I cherish was at Zhukovsky Air Base (if you happen to know where is that). Myself being a private pilot out of hobby (Cessnas), experienced with a great thrill by flying a Russian bird. It's a great fun if one could afford it.

PS: President Putin was in India a few days ago.

I would like to learn to read and write Russian. I don't know about speaking and listening because that requires spending a considerable amount of time in Russia or Russian speaking communities and I just don't see it happening. I'm just being realistic. The only way is if I'm sleeping with a Russian man.

I already know the Cyrillic alphabet. It was surprising how easy it was once you know the Greek (Attic) alphabet.

I'm considering taking an elective in beginner Russian next semester. Is it difficult to learn as a second language? it's my last semester as an undergraduate and I found beginner Spanish pretty easy 2 years back so considering taking another language module.

Well its difficulty probably depends on your native language and what other languages you already know. But just taking Spanish as an example, Russian would be considerably more difficult because it's highly inflected.

Indeed. For example, my native language is English and I grew up studying French in school. As a result, I find Spanish considerably easier to learn than Russian (on paper, that is - obviously it's currently easier to learn Russian, since I live there). However, I find Russian considerably easier than either Korean or Japanese were.

Important note: I'm not overly effective in any of these languages. Including English.

Yeah that's what I was thinking, in high school I took French which probably helped when I then took Spanish.

I like to let everyone know what I mean :p when I lived in NZ the Canadians, Americans, and some Kiwis didn't get the secondary school thing so I say high school when speaking with international groups to avoid the confusion and the "is that the same as high school?" Question.

Crazy Canuck
Dec 29th, 2012, 05:56 PM
You knew Canadians that didn't know what "secondary school" was? We definitely use that in Ontario (as well as "high school"; both are acceptable, though HS is more likely to be used in speech, whereas SS is used in official names of schools). Maybe other parts of Canada are broken.

I'm not doubting you - just surprised.

Yeah one from Vancouver asked if SS was the same as HS

It was mostly Americans who asked though.

If secondary school is the same as high school, then why use secondary school?

You are too modest. ;) Yeah, I can't remember how long you were in Asia but I wouldn't even bother with Korean and Japanese. My rule is to stick to learning Indo-European languages even though my native language is not IE. :sobbing:
