XylophoneOriginally Posted by Ядерное лицоThey have the same problem we have: X = ?Originally Posted by TATYSo, in English schools when they teach kids English they have those posters of the alphabet with each letter of the alphabet on them, then a word that it being with. Like A = Apple, B = Ball, C = Cat.
What do they do for Ы in Russian.
In most of the posters/banners/books that I can recall off the top of my head, X is always described as "X as in foX". There are few English words that begins with X, and I think that young children would have a hard time understanding what is meant by xenon, xylem, xylene, xerox, xiphoid or xenophobia. Possibly the only other way out is to use Xmas as an example.
