    I think it's the right ring finger. In the movie Day Watch Kostya looks at a girl's right hand and sees a ring on the ring finger, so he asks her if she's married...

    You are right. It's the right ring finger. I can tell you as a specialist. Are you going to invite a russian girl for diner?

    Let's hope the next question will not be: If a Russian girl slaps me in the face, does that mean she loves me?

    (and my answer would be: Бьёт, значит любит )

    question

    If she wears a ring on her left ring and/or middle finger, does that mean anything ?

    BTW, can anyone translate the following into russian for me ?

    There may be a very dangerous bird flu outbreak coming in China this spring, I think you should wait until the summer to visit there.

    Этой весной в Китае возможна большая эпидемия птичьего гриппа. Я думаю, вам лучше подождать до лета (приехать летом).

    Sorry, I should have written "Вам" with the capital letter, if you speak about 1 person. It's more polite.

    Hmm I don't think I've ever seen "вам" capitalized.

    Yeah, you typically capitalize the various forms of Вы in official speech. I didn't realize that at first either, though.
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    Well I have read a decent amount, perhaps I'm just not observant enough eh? But thanks for jumping to conclusions TATY. We always need someone like that around here.
