    How do you pronounce these letters

    Hi, I know Russian, and am interested in learning Serbian and Croatian. How do you pronounce these Serbian Cyrillic letters:

    Ђ ђ
    Ћ ћ


    And can you check that I have these letters right:

    Џ џ = English J sound in Jam
    Њ њ = Russian нь (nj in Croatian)
    Љ љ = Russian ль (lj in Croatian)
    J j = Russian й (j in Croatian)

    This may help

    Note that Њ њ and Љ љ are palatal consonants, not palatalized, so are not identical to Russian нь ль, although I would guess they sound very similar.
