For anyone interested in learning or improving their Russian and for native Russians/Ukrainians to join in and improve their English.
Beginners through experts are more than welcome! Those who speak get a venue to practice. I am presently the host of this group but I am moving to Fort Collins, so looking for people interested in taking over the group together with Edward Potereiko, my helpful co-organizer. I grew up hearing Russian, and studied Russian at home, in high school and at university, which was a very long time ago. Now I'm brushing up on my Russian, getting plenty of practice while I worked at Euro Market & Deli at 4329 N. Academy Blvd. I want to keep improving and hopefully take a group of us to Ukraine next spring or summer. What is your interest? Join us and practice, no matter what your level. We are using Barron's "Learn Russian The Fast and Fun Way" Second Edition by Thomas R. Beyer, Jr., Ph.D. You can buy it at Barnes & Noble or on Amazon. We will slowly work through this book, taking interesting diversions as topics come up. We will meet on Tuesdays at 7 pm and Saturdays at 10:00 am,usually in Room B6 of Library 21C on Chapel Hills.
We are changing the settings so that you won't automatically become a member of the group until you have attended three meetings. Far too many people have signed up but never attended, or came to one or two meetings and then stopped. So let's get learning Russian and have fun doing it! Let me know if you can make it to Ukraine in 2016.
