Привет, Наталия!I hope that everything works out for you and that you will soon have lots of свободное время!-Jon
Privet Nati...I studied Russian tongue at Bridgewater State College in Massachusetts way back in 1987-88. Those were my sophomore and junior years. I always thought ruccki yazik ochen trudnee! I got a B+ for dva semesters but have not used the skill since. I am having great fun translating by phoenetic sound in your cryillic conversations...it is like watching a slow motion movie as I sound out each consonant and vowel. Too funny. I could probably read out War and Peace very very slowly but would not have a clue what I just said. Except for basic words...I still remember professor Thompson pointing at this and that saying Shto ETA!Poka...Ya Anton Frankovitch
Natalia,I've been looking for a langauge podcast to use with my kids and am so pleased to have found yours! You go at just the right pace. I am going to mention your show in our next podcast at Homeschool Habitat if you don't mind!
Thanks, all, for the comments! Спасибо!@kimzyn: Go ahead. I am glad to be of help!
i can't get itunes to download previous episodes of your podcast.. i thought i would just drop you a note and let you know
anonymous, there are a couple of reasons for that. Try 'unsubscribing' then 'subscribing' to the podcast again. iPodder is another great feed aggregator.
it's possibly a pretty cool language, but it is a disappearing one: less and less Russian speakers are on this planet every day. In 50, possibly 75 years, there will be no more than, maybe, 20 million people speaking Russian on Earth. Then, why would I have, day, my kids study this unimportant language while Mandarin or Spanish are clearly on the rise? No offence, but that's what I think.Vasisualiy
