Are you a native/heritage speaker or a learner of Russian? If you are a learner, how long have you been studying?

Я изучаю русский язык в колледже - это очень трудны! I started studying Russian in the Army in 2010, but events changed things. Now, as a civilian, I'm back in school and naturally wanted to continue learning. I started fresh, with 101, and am wrapping up the 102 course, and will move on to the 201/202 as soon as possible. I'm not sure I will be able to continue studying Russian in school over the summer, so I was looking for a way/place to keep up my practice. This looks like the solution!

Have you ever been to a Russian-speaking country?

Yes: Kyrgyzstan.

What are your favorite Russian foods? Books? Music? Artists?

I'm not too familiar with Russian cuisine, generally, but I like almost all food anyway. My two favorite Russian writers are Vladimir Nabokov and Fyodor Dostoyevsky. I listen to a lot of metal, which includes a lot of great Russian bands, such as Темнозорь (very underground, so they're not widely known, even in Russia). My favorite composer is either Modest Mussorgsky or Sergey Prokofiev.


Здравствуйте - очень приятно!
