Extending all over Eastern Europe, the Slavic languages have strong similarities to Russian in both vocabulary and grammar. Although this language uses the Latin alphabet, it still has close links to other Slavic languages which use the Cyrillic alphabet. There is no definite article in Slavic languages, which means that a noun, say, 'book', could mean just 'book', 'a book' or 'the book'. §Learn Czech with uTalk
