Russian for the Beginners
A learning circle
my name is Irina. I am native Russian speaker resident of Pittsburgh. I invite you to learn Russian with me. Russian is one of the most spoken languages on the planet, and it is the most spoken Slavic language. There is around 250 million Russian speakers in the world. It is widely used not only in Russia, but in many countries of the former Soviet Union, it is used and understood in the countries of Eastern Europe.
Learning foreign langage has a lot of benefits. It gives the learner more confidence in an unfamiliar environment, it also gives an insight into a different cultural perspective, different way of thinking. In today's fractured world it also opens a road to bilding a bridge between nations by offering an opportunity of having direct human to human interaction with the native speakers, offering a hope for peaceful and cooperative existence to all of us.
Course materials we'll use
I will be bringing the printed handouts for each lesson. The Mango program, available through the library language resources is also very useful for the beginners
