Some more useful hints: Try to get some films in Russian with subtitles - it's VERY useful: you hear how real people talk (phrases, wording, intonation). I got plenty of time on my way to office and back, so I use a player device or an Android 7", and having fun...
NB: the things move VERY MUCH better if the film is what you like. You know, the interest is a father of any progress, and the mother is the necessity... ))))
I do infact have a few Russian movies i either have seen or want to see. "9th Legion" is the only one i have at home, and "Only old men go to war" (which is one of my favorite movies actually) was on Youtube with subtitles. I'll have to look for that one again (preferably on DVD) , but the original version i saw, which i was given a link to on this forum, has been removed. I'd also quite like to see "Mirror wars" but the only version i could find on Youtube with subtitles is all messed up.
- Oscar, you may use a keyboard with Cyrillic layout just instead of your current one. It's not a big problem to use Alt+LShift for switching between Latin/Swedish and Russian layout.
If it's not a secret: you plan to lern Russian just for fun or do you intend to use it practically in the future, like to find a job where knowledge of Russian is needed or something else?
I didn't think about that actually. :blush:
However, i can't seem to change language by pressing Alt+Shift or Alt+L+Shift, nor by going to my computers control panel. But then again, i hardly know anything about how computers work, i just use them.
While i'm learning it mostly for fun*, it might help me get a job. I'm not sure how much Russian i'll need to use if i get my dream job, but you never know what might happen during the day.
*I have had an interest in Russian history and aviation for a while, and i do have a few railroad related books at home that are written in Russian, so i think it's about time.
