It’s very important to correctly learn the alphabet in order to succed in a language. Unfortunately this is the best video I found presentation wise. I have a few issues with it, in that it’s not complete. The video is a bit simplistic and trying to short cut important things. Here’s a few corrections:

About RR , R also sounds like an RR when
it’s at the beginning of a word or after an L, N or S = alrededor . Also R can be soft or strong, depending if is between to vowels or not. Strong =Rusia) or soft caRgueRo(cargo ship).
