German-Russian dictionary

The German-Russian dictionary brought to you by Langenscheidt

Russian is a popular language to learn that yet suffers from its reputation of being a challenging language to master. Surprisingly enough, it is easier to learn this language than you might think. The first step is to learn to identify the Russian alphabet: the Cyrillic alphabet. This is a rather easy step and you will derive great pride and satisfaction from it. Deciphering Russian is a great way to impress your friends.

Once you have integrated Russian reading, you will realize that a significant amount of words are similar to German, such as Salon (салон), Absatz (абзац) or even Luft (люфт). Like most Slavic languages, Russian does not have articles as such, the ending and the declension of a word contains this information. This can be slightly unsettling at first, but it should quickly get the hang of it. At an advanced level, Russian is the language of many classical literary geniuses such as Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky or Nabokov.
