Our club is for non-native speakers of Russian in the Albany/Troy/Schenectady/Saratoga Capital Region who want to practice their conversation skills with one another. This group is not for native speakers (though we could have native speaker guests), or beginners. In general, members should have at least 3 years or so of college Russian or have lived in Russia or in a context where they learned to speak Russian at some level. This group should be member-driven as much as possible, as far as where we want to meet, what activities we'd like to do etc. The only rule is that we speak Russian and strive to maintain and improve our knowledge and skills with the language.
