About this training

Learn about voiced and voiceless consonants - what they are the different ways they are pronounced. Find out why voiced consonants Б, В, Г, Д, Ж, З sometimes sound like voiceless consonants П, Ф, К, Т, Ш, С. And, even more confusing, why two words with different meaning and spelling are pronounced the same.


...Rules! Find out about them in this video as I cover the rules for pronouncing Б – П, В – Ф, Г – К, Д – Т, Ж–Ш, З – С. The position in the word in Russian affects the pronunciation of these consonants. 

That's why this is a MUST STUDY topic for every student of Russian. A little time spent now on phonetics will lay a solid foundation for all your future studies. Whether learning Russian is a hobby for you or part of a career, if you want to understand and be understood, our Russian phonetics course is for you.
