    I suppose you have Ъ and Ь in mind. They have no sound so we just don't pronounce them.
    These letters are used to effect the previous consonant (in most cases to make that consonant hard or soft). That's why they are called "hard sign" and "soft sign".
    I'm sure there is more detailed explanation in your textbook (you do have one, don't you?)

    You had better get some CD's to help your pronounciation. I suggest these because they are an extremely good deal, they're free.

    What kind of files are they? Just zip files right? Perhaps you can get a free or trial program at downloads.com

    They are RAR files - WinZip can handle them (I think). If not, there is a free-to-try program called WinRar that will open them. Go to www.download.com and do a search for WinRar if you are having trouble.
