BREAKING NEWS: according to a survey carried out by British researchers, Russian language has been proved to be beneficial for your self-development in particular and career growth in general!!! What’s more, the complexity of Russian grammar, its pronunciation and constantly shifting stress keep the brain stretched and flexible.

What looks like a "р" is really the equivalent of a Latin "r". What looks like a "в" is really the equivalent of a Latin "v" and what looks like an "н" is really the equivalent of a Latin "n". Finally, Russian language is one of the five most spoken languages in the world and it doesn’t stop gaining its popularity.
