Basic Phonetic Features of Russian
Russian is rather simple as compared to English because it is considered to be a very phonetic language, which means that there is one-to-one correspondence between letters and sounds except very few pronunciation laws. By and large, Russian words will be understood if you simply read them letter-by-letter.
