What do you hope to get out of this group?

My spoken language skills are getting rusty, so I want to practice conversing in Russian. I also want to meet new people with similar interests. I will gladly meet up with people independently to hang out, speak Russian, and drink tea/booze. Let me know if interested.

Have you visited or lived in Russia? If yes, do you have a favorite city/area?

Yes. Ive been to a lot of places in "European" Russia and enjoyed many of them, but Petersburg is the place I am most anxious to return to.

Do you have a favorite Russian novel or movie?

Lots and lots. I guess maybe Zapiski iz Podpolya or Master i Margarita... I love the classics, but am becoming interested in modern writers. Currently reading various Pelevin, but am always interested in new recommendations since I know so little about this sfyera.


Hello! I'm finally back in Pittsburgh and looking to speak Russian. I like travel, meeting new people from different places, literature, drinking, language, playing music, etc.

What Mike B. is saying about this Meetup Group

So far the group has been a great mixture of students and native speakers. Lots of fun. And it seems to be gradually growing.
