This is for all of you Hetalia fans who want to learn Russian (and see some derptastic doodles of mine).
Straight up, it's not an easy second language to learn. We've got it batshit insane when it comes to doing anything with nouns, tenses, formality, and gender- stuff that even Google Translator can't possibly cope with.
I think it's totally awesome when you people use Russian in fanfictions and fanart, so I hope that you guys enjoy some basic lessons in saying stuff.
This is part 0, because I believe that reading Cyrillic is kind of essential. I'll still provide Romanized pronunciations of things in subsequent tutorials, though, because anyone who tells you that Russian is pronounced exactly as it's read is probably messing with you.
NEXT: Addressing People, Greetings, Formality and Informality [probably]
EDIT: Oh my god. Did you guys spot my lack of English grammar there? I swear, after 11 years of using this language... *fixed magically*
