 This time Huliganov shows the letter group BPHXCY where the usage in Russian follows that of Greek, the letter shapes in this group appear in Latin script but with different values.
 
 The professor also warns people of the necessity to roll their ‘r’s. He finishes off with one of his all time favorite folk songs “All around my hat” as well as a rather ribald joke.
