if you know one slav language like in my case polish (ok not perfect but enough to understand the most) then you will see that words repeat very often and learning to write and read cyrillic took me a week not more. Then you have to gain some experience by talking to russian relatives or russians you know. That's how i do it.
So today I was near the international train station and an old drunk Russian man walks up to me and asks something! The only thing I understood was "glavnyij". Then we kind of started communicating by pointing at things and going all "aha!" until I managed to sort of navigate him where he needed to go. It was hilarious. When I came home I really had to ask my father how they say "train station" in Russian. Now I feel an incredible urge to learn the language! Haha.

If you know any slavs language, it wouldn't be too hard to you to learn any other. At first you'll need dictionary and bringer/carrier (íîñèòåëü, nositel') of this language. In the dicionary often print gramar overveiw in volume which allow you to talk and undersand, "Talking language" (in russian its sounds ðàçãîâîðíûé, razgovornii yazik). If you will talk/read on it with someone, of course. And later begin to read with dictionary forum and few intresting article on any theme. Later (couple month) you may talk with someone on "skype" for exaple (it would be totaly free).
And main rule DON'T CONFUSE to talk on language you learning.
all you need to really know is one main language from all the slavic sections and you will always be ok..... Russian will get your everywhere all over easten part, Srpski in south and Polish for middle section..... is all you need i think
Since I have learnt to talk I speak polish ... I know poorly english and preferably from strange languages german... Sometimes I look in dictionary, because I know the word in german, but in english not ... By this forum my knowledge of english language is growing up... Know russian is my plan for the closest three years...
Hm, although I have nothing against Russian ( beautiful language), I much more prefer Old Slavic as a language of our future mutual understanding. Besides it was the common language of early Slavic literature.
Christianity was firstly introduced to Great Moravia through this language. Pity that western Slavs don't use Cyrillic alphabet today, after all Cyrillic was made specifically for us, Slavs!
Yea its like a uni course and u can get a A level qualification in it, but thats not the reason y im doing it. The first interesting thing i came upon was the Russian phrase for how are u. "Как дела?" дела meaning deeds in Serbian and u can say "Како" for how so translated in Serbian it would mean How are deeds

Gopnik: from leader's POV, i'd say Kim Jong Un as in north korea he is not forcing any pics of himself nor making a shit ton of songs praising him unlike his dad and grandfather, but instead he is attempting to get the nation out of the shithole it is in today.
