Hi, to be precise, good news is that among those 33 Cyrillic letters, 5 letters sound and look like English letters:
"A, К, М, О, Т"
The rest of the Russian alphabet just needs to be memorized. For English speakers often while reading, the confusing letters are the letters that look like English, but have different sounds, those Russian letters are:
"В [v], Е [ye], Н [n], Р [r], С [s], У [oo], Х [kh]"
The final 21 letters of Russian alphabet neither look nor sound English:
"Б [b], Г [g], Д [d], Ё [yo], Ж [zh], З [z], И [ee], Й [y] like in "boy", Л [l], П [p], Ф [f], Ц [ts], Ч [ch], Ш [sh], Щ [shch], Ы [i] like in "ill", Э [e] "let", Ю "yu", Я ya, Ь [soft sign], Ъ [hard sign]"
All in all - 10 vowels, 21 consonants and 2 signs. Above are capital letters only with transcription, the italic letters however, is a different story.
