Does that link have an English version?

What do you mean? The poster is in English. It was made by the owner of this blog, if that’s what you mean. And as far as I know the blog is only in Russian (nice pictures though).

I meant the blog. Very nice pictures, that's why I wanted to read the commentaries (if that's what they were.)

Crawling Axe said...

Yeah, sorry…

Russian is a very easy language to learn. Second easiest in the world, after Chinese. Or was it second hardest?.. Anyway, I’d give it a try…

Right, let me first master Hebrew, Yiddish, Spanish and Latin.

Spanish is boring and Latin is dead. One Israeli girl did not like Spanish compared to Russian. “Spanish is here [she showed with her hand], and Russian is culture; it’s here [she raised her hand].”

But Russian’s got the same rolling rrrr as in Spanish. And a lot of similar sounds. And more declensions (cases) than Latin. I.e., more fun!

Spanish would be more of convenience than interest. Latin is dead but interesting for etymology.
But you are right, the Russian pronunciation is jolly good fun. Probably because I'm not doing it right. :)
