POV: Am I a glonk?

POV: You’ve just finished Anna Karenina and you wonder if it would have been any different in the original language.

Not a very interesting point of view, but it is mine so bear with me. I’m learning the Russian language! And I can’t remember half of the words that I learnt today. I was planning to learn it on my own, but I decided that that would be a shitload of work to do, especially since Russian is one of the hardest languages to learn apparently. So I got a Duolingo account, and I must say, learning Russian is becoming one hell of a journey.

I’m being melodramatic. It’s fun being melodramatic, teehee. I just started learning the cyrillic alphabet and some словарь (vocabulary in Russian, google translated, guilty as charged). But it’s fun! And it doesn’t hurt that I’ve a hell lot of time on my hands. So мир out my dudes, until later.

  1. Learning Russian is a doddle compering with Hindi or Chinese! I learn Russian as a child by taking a word that is the same in many languages, like for example CROCODILE, and using Russian KROKODILE to compare the letters. You can learn the alphabet easily.

    1. That’s so cool! Hindi isn’t that hard, btw. I had to learn it in the 4th grade coz I was moving to India (and unfortunately, it happens to be one of the compulsory subjects). But I suppose that anything we learn when we are young seems easy once we grow up, innit?

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I never got the opportunity to do so either (unless you count school, where I learned French for 4 years). Duolingo is an app where you can learn a language either from scratch or (if you have previous experience with that particular language) wherever you need to start from.

  2. You reminded me of this site. I should really start using it. I’d love to start learning a new language. And Russian would be awesome, though rather hard as you pointed out. Stay safe!
