Hello dear reader and Russian learner,
Let me introduce myself: my name is Valeria and I was born in USSR. The most of my life I spoke Russian and Russian only. But in my twenties I got fascinated by learning languages, and this is how the story of this site starts.
After finding a lot of online resources to learn the languages I was interested in, I started having an idea of creating my own for those who wants to learn Russian.
Over time, this hobby transformed into a passion: one website that does not exist today transformed into a network of websites that offer a variety of lessons and exercises to learn and practice Russian for free and which I run together with a little group of passionate people.
This one, Очень по-русски, is designed for the upper-intermediate and advanced Russian learners that want to push their Russian to a new conversational level. In the podcast, I’m telling you about the Russian slang, idioms, common expressions and even swearings. There are separate sections for Russian jokes and proverbs. All the words mentioned in the posts are gathered in the Modern Conversational Russian Dictionary.
Your comments, questions and suggestions are very much appreciated. We love hearing the feedback from the readers, so please don’t hesitate to leave some. We hope you will find the site helpful. Good luck and happy learning! 🙂
