So you are on your journey of learning Russian, it's an exciting adventure, but it does get hard at times. One danger in language learning is to get so focused on grammar and vocabulary that you forget to simply practice and enjoy the language.

I, being a native Russian, started dating a Latvian girl over two years ago, she couldn't speak Russian at all. I started learning Latvian and she started learning Russian and we both helped each other out along the way. Now , two years later I became fluent in Latvian and she became fluent in Russian. We both benefited from the process and it was a lot of fun! Indicators : Phrases more suitable for men will be marked as masculine phrases, for women - feminine phrases. Would you like a drink?
