Here's a fun way to practice learning the Russian alphabet: read Russian maps! If you aren't sure of your Russian letters yet, your knowledge of geography will help you fill in the blanks. You'll also get to see how Russians may spell and pronounce sounds that are foreign to them (consider, for example, Вайоминг and Галифакс!).
