In this lesson, we’ll cover the system of hooks and bars for writing Russian letters. Hooks and bars can be used when writing to help you tell similar looking letters apart. Let's start!


Hooks and Bars
06:12

In this lesson, we'll be learning the system of accents in the Russian language and learn how it affects word stress and the pronunciation of some letters. As we have gone through the series, we have told you from time to time that certain letters aren't always pronounced the same way. Well, in this lesson we'll clarify why and when that is.

In fact, writing with accents in Russian makes reading it much easier. So why did we wait until the end of the series to introduce it?! Because unfortunately, it isn't used outside of textbooks and is really just a teaching and learning aid.

This will be a great lesson! Let's start!

Accents
04:22

In this lesson, we'll be learning about how the Russian punctuation system differs from English. First, I'll give you the good news: In general, Russian follows punctuation rules that are similar to English, so things like periods, semicolons, and exclamation points are more-or-less the same in Russian and we won't be discussing them in this lesson. Instead, we'll be focusing on the differences in the use of the em dash and the Russian equivalents for quotation marks.

Ready?!

Punctuation

You made it! This is our very last lesson!

In this lesson, we won't be learning any new letters, punctuation, or pronunciation, but instead will REVIEW everything that we've covered so far. If you find this lesson easy, then that just means that you are ready to move on to the next stage of Russian learning!

Then let's get started!

Top 5 Russian Mistakes to Avoid
05:26

In this lesson, you'll learn all 13 Russian vowel sounds.

By learning all of these sounds, you'll be able to pronounce any vowel that could possibly appear in Russian!

Are you ready?
Then let's get started!

Russian Vowels
08:30

In this lesson, you'll learn 11 Russian consonant sounds.

Have you noticed how most consonant sounds are in pairs? That's because in Russian, consonants can be classified as either a hard or a soft consonant based on palatalization. We'll learn more about hard and soft consonants, and palatalization, in lecture 32. For now, just focus primarily on pronouncing each of these sounds properly.

Are you ready?
Then let's get started!

Russian Consonants Part One
06:31

In this lesson, you'll learn 14 Russian consonant sounds.
l lʲ, m mʲ, n nʲ, p pʲ, r rʲ, s sʲ, ʂ, ɕː

Nearly half of these consonant sounds are identical to the ones in English.
So if you know English, some of them will already be familiar to you.

Are you ready?
Then let's get started!

Russian Consonants Part Two
09:12

In this lesson, you'll learn the final 12 Russian consonant sounds.
t tʲ, ts tɕ, v vʲ, x xʲ, z̪ z̪ʲ, ʐ ʑː

Nearly half of these consonant sounds are identical to the ones in English.
So if you know English, some of them will already be familiar to you.

Are you ready?
Then let's get started!

Russian Consonants Part Three
07:25

In this lesson, you'll learn about Russian palatalization.

It is imperative that you get a firm understanding of the content in this lesson because palatalization is a major component of Russian. Consonant sounds in Russian are heavily influenced by their neighboring sounds. There are many instances where a letter's pronunciation will change based on the sounds that follow it.

How?! Let's see.

Palatalization
06:56

In the previous lesson, we saw how neighboring sounds can influence a consonant's pronunciation through palatalization.

In this lesson, we'll explore how neighboring sounds can influence a consonant's voicing.

Voicing
04:26

In the last lesson you learned about voicing. In this lesson, you'll learn about stress and vowel reduction.

Ready? Let's start.

Stress & Vowel Reduction
05:54

In this last lesson, we'll wrap things up by quizzing you on the material that we've covered in this series.

You may know all the parts and pieces, but can you speak Russian with a natural accent?

If you've been quiet up until now, be sure to speak out loud with Katya.

The Genitive Case

In the last lesson, we learned how to express possession by putting nouns in the genitive case. In this lesson we will learn the instrumental case, which usually marks the method of the action, like the English preposition "with" or “by means of”. Why is it called instrumental? Because it represents the ‘instrument’ that was used to carry out the action.
