she was hot indeed, that's why I didn't learn much. :D

On topic: it's not that easy. First you need to learn russian alphabet and pronunciation. Because writing russian phrases in latin alphabet looks kind of funny to me - their alphabet has few letters that cannot be adequately translated into latin counterpart. And pronunciation is way different than English one. That's why your best bet is to get a teacher (but try to get somewhat less hot than mine ;) :D).

You could try google, but unless you know some basics (specially since you come from non-slavic country), I am afraid everything will be in vain (and it's not your fault btw).

Alan, you spell that in Latin letters then :D

What is your name? - как тебя зовут?
where do you live? - где ты живешь?
Where did you born? - где ты родился?
What is your work? - где/кем ты работаешь
what is your age? - сколько тебе лет?

:howler: Ever considered just buying a dictionary instead of asking a million of questions? A grammar book would be helpful too if you want to learn how to build phrases :D But I really doubt that two books alone would be enough to be honest :D Learning a language isn't THAT easy, unfortunately :sob:

www.multitran.ru - you can find any word you want here :D

well it'd be boring if we were all the same I guess :D
You know a story about a wise man who was asked to give food by some hungry people? :D He didn't give them food... He taught them how to catch fish :D. Now they don't need to ask him for help every time they get hungry, they can get food themselves. Same here :D

You want to know how I'd spell it with Russian letters or what? If with English, then ty is spelled just like you spelled it :confused: And их is spelled ikh in English.

The best way to avoid (or to lessen :D) a mess is to get a teacher indeed :thmbup::D
also russian alphabet have 33 letters,portuguese 23....
well, you're lucky you're not trying to learn Japanese I guess. Then you'd be in real trouble :D

We Russians spell it ты and их :googly:

Sun is just solntse. Beach = plyazh. But what about using a dictionary for a change? The link I gave you is NOT a translator btw. It's a dictionary.
