WHY LEARN RUSSIAN?

Russian is one of the six languages of the United Nations. 

Russia is still the largest country in the world.

Russian is spoken by more than 200 million people and is an official language in Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan.

Russian is one of the easiest of the 13 "State Department Critical Languages" to learn with a phonetic alphabet of only 33 characters, many similar to the Greek or our Latin alphabet characters.

Russian is an Indo-European language and though a Slavic language, it does have some common shared vocabulary with French, German, and even English.

Russian is an important language, both culturally and politically.
