Один из лучших вещей я читал здесь недавно. Ты молодец братушка! что-то подобного случилось со мной.

Совсем не важно. Я ему прекрасно понял и это что самая главное.

Maybe it took me a little bit (a minute of processing) - but a small humble brag - I got the gist of both of those sentences! Google translation of course to confirm. There were a couple of words I didn't understand but in context it makes sense. Some of the words were not in forms I was super familiar with and just had to sound them out and match what was in my vocabulary.* Whether I suck or not - I will take this as a some encouragement lol.

I don't think anyone expects perfection from a non native speaker - we have all met non native speakers in our countries and we understand and get along with them just fine.

*I do notice that when I hear words that I either didn't catch the whole word or it is unfamiliar I do try to squeeze them into my limited vocab. Sometimes, it works and sometimes I am way off Laugh

If I wasn't a native speaker, I would never think of learning Russian. The grammar is too complicated and the writing is different than speaking.

Hey, thanks for the encouragement. After all this forum is about helping guys.

Are you really a fighter or just an arguer?

Fate whispers to the warrior, "You cannot withstand the storm." And the warrior whispers back, "I am the storm."
