    Здравствуйте literally means that you wish everyone to be in good health and prosperity. It's also used as polite and popular form of greetings and as greetings for two and more people.
    Я так думаю.

    Й is pronounced like a very short "Yuh" where the h is silent. Like the word "Yukon"

    Ж is pronounced "ZH" as well as "Juh". Think of it like a J with a Z sound.

    Ъ is the "hard sign". This affects the consonant after it. It has no sound.

    Ь is the "soft sign". This affects the consanont before it. This also has no sound.

    Х is pronounced "Huh" as in the word "Hotel" It is very breathy.

    You might want to study voiced and voiceless consonants and vowels.

    And a fricative or two...both with and without scrapes...

    X was confusing because I learned Arminian for 2 years, and my teacher did 'zh' diffrently, (not a J sound)

    And I have a question for people living in Russia, have you heard of 'airsoft', and is it played there?
