Understand the mechanics of Russia and figure out how it all fits togetherA surprising amount of “language learning” companies don’t explicitly teach how Russian works. Rocket Russian takes completely the opposite approach and breaks down Russian grammar into understandable chunks. For example...
Hard vs Soft ConsonantsA special feature of the Russian phonetic system is that it has two types of consonants, "hard consonants" and "soft consonants". The vast majority of consonants are hard unless they are followed by the soft sign - Ь or the letters Е, И, Я, Ю and Ë.
Example of a hard consonant; р
Example of a soft consonant; р
