    Starting out with Russian...

    Hello there, I am very new to this language. It is all so fascinating and although I have more experience with Polish (as in hearing it spoken and knowing a few words/phrases) I would love to learn Russian.
    I have a few questions though, when teaching yourself Russian which would be the best way to go about it? Learning the alphabet first -> pronunciation -> vocabulary -> grammar? Would it be better to learn the alphabet and pronunciation at the same time or do any of you have some other method you went about this? Also, whats an effective way to go about learning the alphabet? Would a flashcard method be usefull?

    Thank you for answering my questions in advance.

    I would by a book, or a home study course or something like that. Just follow the path the book takes you on. At this level almost anything will be fine. Learn the basics first.

    I honestly don't remebmer learning the alphabet. I just kinda picked it up as I read, but never actually sat down and learned it. While learning the alphabet, pronounciation kinda comes naturally with that, so it really isn't a seperate step. Eitherway, this should be done at the same time as you learn grammar and vocabulary in my opinion. If you just learn vocabulary first, you may see that a word has an irregular genetive plural for example, but you'll have no idea what that means. As saibot said, if you get a book and just follow it, you really can't go wrong. Good luck!
