Crillic script

by Wiebke (Wiwi)
(Bremen, Germany)

The Russian language sounds in my ears a bit harsh, as well as their writing system looks harsh. They are using the Crillic script, like most of the Slavic languages.

The Crillic script is based on the Greek unical script and consists of 33 letters from which 10 are vocals.

In Germany there are some gag postcards with some Crillic words, but if you read it out loud, you get a German sentence which says: “Whoever can read this is an East German!”

Until the German Reunion, everyone had to learn Russian in East Germany, and the people in West Germany didn’t have to, and so normally only people from East Germany can read and understand it.
