Cyrillic Cursive

Unlike English, where you can get by with just knowing the block letters, it is critical to learn Cursive in Russian since no self-respecting Russian will write using anything else.

In fact, because cursive is the "normal" way to write in Russian, most children learn to read cursive by the first grade, unlike in English where it is being used less and less frequently.

Go through these lessons first to learn to read the cursive forms of the letters and then follow the instructions in "Writing Cursive" to learn how to write.
