Russian Alphabet in Writing
One can find Russian alphabet almost in any textbook for the Russian language. Most books even include detailed pronunciation charts for every Russian letter. However, there is one peculiarity about the Russian alphabet that most textbooks do not explain. Some people who just start learning Russian may think that Russian written letters look like Russian typed, or block letters. However, in many cases they may be completely different. There may even be several variants of written letters in Russian.
In this table you can see Russian written letters (on the right) and compare them to their typed variants (on the left). The writing is kind of casual but standard. It may vary with different people as they may have their own writing patterns.
Russian alphabet may be confusing for many beginners. So it is recommended to learn reading Russian first before you start writing it. Copy the picture below to use it when needed.
