Since when do you speak and write Russian? I always end up replying to one of your PM's, somehow it's never the one you wanted Image.

I've studied Russian, off and on, for years. I'm only minimally conversant. My reading in Russian is is pretty good. I'm just starting the writing part. Really all I need after that is to increase my vocabulary.

It's pretty easy to learn to read and write in Russian, compared to English. The Cyrillic alphabet makes a lot more sense. It makes the spelling a no brainer. English spelling is beyond idiotic.

Really? From what I heard, Russian is a pretty hard language to study. I don't know, I've always been more into Latin langauges and the wonders of the ABC, but it looks complicated enough. What's wrong with English spelling? You haven't seen Hebrew spelling, I'll show you idiotic! My mother has been living here for over 30 years and she still can't write properly.


LOL where did you get that smilie from? It's brilliant!

I stole the smiley from another board.

Russian is simple, compared to English. The grammar rules are more relaxed, the spelling is easier because the Cyrillic alphabet actually makes sense, once you learn it. It's mostly one letter per sound and one sound per letter. Mostly.

I can only guess at the complexity of Hebrew but the reason for it is probably about the same. Both Hebrew and English are pretty much made up languages designed by committee, stealing words from a variety of other languages.

We have a saying that a camel is actually a horse that was designed by committee.

I'm surprised that anyone bothers with English, frankly. The more I am exposed to other languages, the more angry I get about all the time I wasted learning this overly complicated system we have. About the only place English has any advantage is that it doesn't have gender nouns, like a lot of other languages do.
