I have no recollection of that at all to be honest.

Was it as confidence crushing as one of Fighter's posts? Rolleyes

I think it was when we spoke in Russian by phone the other day. Samsamsam was there in my apartment drinking vodka shots with ogurets i pomidori, he emptied my stock...

Now I am a shitty Russian speaking, alcohol stealing alcoholic with poor boxing skills.

Yes, I am very easily defeated. I am quitting Russian now. Where is the thread eject button?

Fighter is right, anyone with an English accent can never speak Russian well. Also anyone who likes MMA cannot speak Russian well either.


On a serious note, Lermontov nice first post. I don't think it is lost on anyone the challenges of learning Russian as compared to some other languages. I have some exposure to romance languages so it helped a little and a decent number of English words have found there way into Russian, maybe with just slightly different pronunciations. But a post like Lermontov's shows the effort and dedication that it might take to get to the point of being able to communicate in Russian. Some day when I feel like I am able to function reasonably well in Russian only - I hope to share a mini datasheet on what I did, even though we do not all learn the same way.

My priorities are conversation first, reading comprehension second, and writing last.
