ZDRAVO! Kako svi?

I love Serbian, it's so easy to learn. If you don't know how to spell a word (I suck at spelling) just write it how it sounds, and you'll end up pretty close.

Also, Russian is kind of similar to Serbian, we share a few words, etc. We both also use the Cyrillic alphabet, although in Serbia they use Latin as well. Srbija / Србија.

Russian to Macedonian: same as Bulgarian

Russian to Albanian: not Slavic, very dissimilar

Russian to Croatian: same as Serbian

Russain to Romanian: not Slavic, very dissimilar

Russian to Latvian: not Slavic, very dissimilar

Russian to Belarussian: 90%

Russian to Estonian: not Slavic, very dissimilar

there, youve got my opinions :P

serbian, croatian, bosnian, and montenegrin are essentially the same language (they just made separate names when the countries became independent). and bulgarian and macedonian are pretty much the same, too.

my percentages arent only based off of words, but also grammar. serbian and russian have a lot of words different, but the grammar is almost exactly the same (and its pretty much universal throughout all slavic languages)

It is though, I just wanted to point it out. Here's some more phrases en français

Ton âge?

How old are you? (informal): Quel âge as-tu ?

How old are you? (informal): Tu as quel âge ?

How old are you? (formal): Quel âge avez-vous ?

I am ... years old: J'ai ... ans. (This is literally "I have ... years.")

*notice there are two ways of saying 'you' in French. Our version of the informal 'you' is archaic, as we all know, it was 'thou'. (Thou lovest it, Thou art not being etc.)

One: un, une

Two: deux

Three: trois

Four: quatre

Five: cinq

Six: six

Seven: sept

Eight: huit

Nine: neuf

Ten: dix

Eleven: onze

Twelve: douze

Thirteen: treize

Fourteen: quatorze

Fifteen: quinze

Sixteen: seize

Seventeen: dix-sept

Eighteen: dix-huit

Nineteen: dix-neuf

Twenty: vingt

Twenty One: vingt et un

Twenty two: vingt-deux

Twenty three: vingt-trois

and so on

Thirty: trente

Thirty one: trente et un

Forty: quarante

Fifty: cinquante

Sixty: soixante

Seventy: soixante-dix (or septante in Belgium and Switzerland)

Eighty: quatre-vingt (octante in Belgium and huitante in Switzerland)

Ninety: quatre-vingt dix (nontante in Belgium and Switzerland)

One-Hundred: cent

One-Hundred and One: cent un

Les mois de l'année et les jours de la semaine.

January: janvier

February: février

July: juillet

August: août

*Days and months in French do not begin with a capital letter.

I can continue if you wish to learn French... I'd happily do it, I enjoy teaching people it.
