    Smile Should I learn the Cyrillic Alphabet first?

    I'm a beginner at Russian but I love it!
    I'm wondering if I should learn the Cyrillic Alphabet, both how to speak and write it?
    I correspond a lot by email with a Russian speaking person,
    and I do all of the translating from Russian to English and back again.
    So, I've learned what certain words look like in Cyrillic - like Wow and Love.
    Then I started thinking maybe I should master Cyrillic....should I?

    Thanks

    If you're serious about learning the language, then yes. You definitely MUST. If you're okay with how the things are right now, then learning Cyrillic is entirely up to you, just to broaden your horizons if you know what I mean.
    Medved and RedFox like this.
    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    Thank you, iCake I am very serious and I will learn it today! You are a great help iCake, but I'm curious, are you like my mentor since I am new here? It seems you always respond first to my questions, and sometimes my main response...am I off limits for now to other members??? just curious -- your help is greatly appreciated!

    Really? Well, it just so happened that I replied first to your posts. A coincidence if you will. I'm no mentor, but I don't mind helping when I can Good luck with your stidies!

    Learning the alphabet is on the one hand a very easy thing and on the other hand a very useful thing for further language learning.
    You certainly want to learn it!
    Please correct my English

    Alphabet is a MUST! I thought I couldn't learn it at all, all those characters looked like aliens to me. As soon as I learned them, my Russian is going pretty well
