About this site (in English)
My name is Valeria and I live in Saint-Petersburg.
Having experience of learning foreign languages on my own, it’s hard not to notice that the number of resources for learning Russian on Internet is considerably less than the number of sites devoted to English, Spanish etc.
This site aims to fill this gap at least a little and to overcome this unfortunate injustice. Russian slang, idioms, common expressions – I share with you the Russian language, which you will not find in standard textbooks. The language that I hear every day, that I and people around me speak every day. There are also expressions that I personally do not use and do not advise you to use – rudeness and swearing are not the best ways to communicate. But they are also a part of my native language and therefore they are here.
New podcast episodes are published every Monday and Thursday.
Your comments, questions and suggestions are always very much appreciated. I would be grateful for the feedback. I hope you will find the site useful. Good luck in learning the language!
