Can you speak russian?
if you follow my account, you'll know that i'm an australian; an english language teacher; i live in andorra; and, that i speak english; french; and, spanish. i've also studied german, italian, and japanese to a reasonable degree of fluency but they've been overshadowed by my obsession with french and spanish.
i'm trying to prove a point to some of my students: that anyone can learn enough to get by in any language within 6 months.
so, after half a bottle of wine, and a search bar feature on my #meizu
(chinese brand) phone (which gives me search results in russian – one might wonder why!), i've decided to announce to my classes, and to my friends and ig followers, that as of today, i shall be taking on the challenge to speak conversational russian by late-october.
if you'd like to join me in this challenge, or you'd like to learn a language you've always wished you could speak, check out the techniques in the youtube ted talks below by my favourite gurus, and let me know you're in this with me.
