    Do you want to learn how to read Cryllic? Is that what your question is? If you learn that, you will be able to pronounce the words and letters.

    I forgot my own language, because I wasn't exposed to it anymore. Nothing but English is what I heard, and occasional visits to people my adoptive mom knew from Russia but I forgot it anyway. It happens. (Thats because I was adopted from Ukraine though)

    Hello!

    We need more than just the cyrillic alphabet to be able to pronounce Russian text properly, no? For example, "спасибо" is, of course "thank you" in Russian. But where does it say how to pronounce it? We could pronounce it:

    "spa-SEE-bo",
    "SPA-see-bo", or
    "spa-see-BO".

    I know it's pronounced "spa-SEE-ba", because I know the word. Shouldn't it be spelled "спасибa", then? How can we tell, though, if we can only read cyrillic characters? Is there a trick to it, or do we have to learn it on a word-per-word basis like in English?

    Thanks!

    Milo
