Intermediate. I took 3 years in college and took classes in St. Petersburg & Kiev while traveling last year. I spent the last year traveling in Russian-speaking countries & tried to speak it on a regular basis.
I spent 3 months in Russia, 6 weeks in Ukraine, 6 weeks in Armenia & a month in Tajikistan in the last year, as well as stops in the other former Soviet countries.
I spent the last year traveling & volunteering through the former Soviet Union. I studied Russian in college & took classes again during my travels - would love to keep working on my conversation skills!
