Russian Language Coffee & Conversation

Since a lot of people can't make our usual every other Monday meetings at Crossroads, I thought it'd be fun if we had a conversation meetup in Bellevue at Cupcake Royale this coming Thursday. This will be an informal conversation group for those wishing to enhance their Russian. Bring any questions you like about Russian and I or hopefully a native speaker will try to answer them. Увидимся вас в Четверг. Спасибо заранне.

    I liked this meeting too. I hope I was helpful for you. Yes, Tim it's a great idea. It is a good thing to be prepared if you want to do something really good.

    Tim, thank you for your idea. What kind of topics did you have in mind? I think having a topic is a good idea, and it would help me learn better. I want you and the other advanced students to be able to practice too, though.

      I mean it can be anything that will help beginners to understand basic rules and the logic behind the Russian language. For example, each time we can focus on verbs and the use of the verbs (past, present, and future tenses) and greetings, case endings, numbers, or whatever you want to focus on. As far as me, It will also give me a chance to remember the things I learnt before.

    Ok...good ideas by everyone. Maybe at our next meeting we can determine a specific subject people would like to focus on, i.e. case endings, verbs, alphabet, nouns, etc... I'd love it if we could break into small groups but never sure how many participants we'll have. If anyone has ideas of things they'd like to cover at the next "cupcake meeting" feel free to post....спасибо всем...

    Thanks everybody for the today's meeting. I really enjoyed it. I have a suggestion. I believe the spontaneity of our conversation during the meeting is a good thing, but we can also focus on a specific subject in each meeting so that those who just started to learn Russian won't get confused and overwhelmed. We can determine a topic before we meet and come to the meeting prepared. What do you guys think?

    Cool...we'll definitely do it on TH, works fine with me. Cupcake Royale is great for me. Would everyone like to meet Thursday of this week @ Cupcake Royale? Next Thursday is Thanksgiving so we'd have to wait till the next week. I'll go ahead and post it for this TH and see what the interest is.

    There is a Tully's coffee shop at 7810 SE 27th St in Mercer Island where we could meet. It's right off the Island Crest Way exit on I-90. I would also recommend Cupcake Royale at 21 Bellevue Way NE in Bellevue (also has coffee). 5 pm would be fine with me. Thursdays are best. I'd love to hear what works for others.
