    Hello.

    Npnbet is as close as I can get to hello!

    I'm Ezri, an english woman living in Wales, 35 as of yesterday and trying to teach myself Russian as of 4 days ago.

    Hopefully I will meet lots of patient people here as I may be asking a lot of stupid questions!
    More madness than method but it works for me.

    I see.
    So, instead of meeting lots of high brow academics with a serious interest in learning or teaching Russian, this forum is frequented by people who arent too serious and like to have a laugh?



















    Well thank goodness for that!!

    Yes!

    But hopefully, thanks to your advice in my other thread, I will be able to type it properly soon!

    Yes!
    I'd never guess it.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Maybe you meant to say "the sillier the questions the better" Maybe we should organize a special prize for the silliest question of the day
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.
