I want to start learning the russian language. But I have a problem, I have no idea what to do! So my question is what should I tackle first? What is the easiest way to start learning russian?
The easiest way to start learning any language is to find a teacher or/and a course and join a target-language speaking community. Good books and motivation are also important.
Nowadays there is a possibility to study online via Skype, etc.
Self-study also helps, though not so efficiently as communicating people in Russian.
If you choose self-study, get a textbook and use it.
Also, youtube can be helpful, though there is not really much material for foreign students, but still you can watch something to your taste in Russian.
Switch your gadgets to the Russian interface, be curious about the names of everything around you in Russian, learn the reading rules and read aloud as much as you can, whisper every Russian word you see. Write and type Russian, read what you have written, learn useful words and phrases by heart.
