The start of what has in fact been the most popular thing I’ve ever done on the internet, this is the first ever lesson of Russian in the cult course done as Viktor Dmitrievitch Huliganov.

Here in Huliganov.tv these are going to have their own section, and each of the films will have additional notes.

The vocab of each will be listed here, and you’ll be able to ask your questions in the comments sections also, and get maybe a longer answer than the ones that it’s possible to get in the original YT format.

This was only actually going to be a series of lessons on the Russian alphabet, as the vehicle not only for Russian but for other languages also, but in the course of the ten lessons, in which there are hardly any Russian words as such in  the first few lessons, people started asking for real full Russian lessons, which is what then happens in RL102.

In this lesson no actual letters are given, only info on the historical background of Cyrillics. It still got to over 60,000 views! People simply love the mix of serious linguistic education with humour, so that’s what I tried to do with this course, each lesson of which contains some didactic material and then a joke and a song.

Enjoy!
