Explains how there is a hard set and a soft set of vowels in Russian. In other Slavic languages the Latin alphabet cannot always cope with this and the soft annotation moves to the consonants or use additional letter I’s.

Contains a comparison to what is the equivalent of the idea of soft and hard in West European languages, and how vowel systems work in a few other kind of languages to give some perspctive to the Slavic and especially the Russian system.
