Belarusian is an easy-to-learn language that Belarus residents delight in speaking. Some residents of Russia, Latvia, Poland, Lithuania, and Ukraine also like this East Slavic language. UNESCO listed it as one of the world's endangered or vulnerable languages since it has less than five million speakers globally.
Belarusian has two major dialects, the South-Western and North-Eastern. Those learning or writing this language can either use the Latin alphabet or the Cyrillic alphabet, depending on which they deem easier. Although Belarusian is related to several other East Slavic languages, primarily Ukrainian, it differs slightly from them, thanks to its unique phonology.
