    Learning russian

    Hey everybody! I am in a despirate situation. I have to go to russian next week to help my mom translate so she can adopt 2 girls... but the problem is, my russian is so basic its sad! I speak it every day with friends, but they do more talking and less teaching than i would like. If anyone can help me out for a bit, i would be greatful! (and if you want help with another language, i can help that!) I speak italian, portuguese, spanish, and some french.

    My msn is jphoops4life@netscape.net for anyone who is interested.

    Well, as far as I know, if they're that far along in the adoption process, there should be an interpreter, at least in the important and legal parts.

    yeah thats true... for the LEGAL stuff. But to get around in moscow and all that we are left alone. My cousin is coming too, and she wants to experience russia to the fullest. So i just want to be able to get around more... and in the future, be able to have the girls keep their language!

    so anyone who can help a bit would be very much appriciated!

    TO be honest, talking to someone on MSN is not a good way to learn Russian. You need a proper course. I suggest getting some self-study books. Also if you are going to Russia so soon, there's not much you can learn in that space of time.

    You can survive in Russia without Russian, even if people don't speak English you can still get by. Also in Moscow a lot of staff in caf

    no no no... i have been studying for a bit. its not like i just said "im going to russia in a week, i better study!" I have been learning it every day with friends at school so i know the basics, i just need someone to talk with to just improve it day by day.

    And survive, yes. You can survive without air for a bit of time too. But in the end, it would just be better to learn russian right? I mean, i will have 2 girls who speak russian in my house constantly, and my friends speak it all the time... so either way, i want to be proficient!

    Then why don't you type in Russian?
    Заодно и язык потренируешь. А мы узнаем, какой у тебя уровень, и поймём, что тебе нужно, дадим советы, рассчитанные именно на тебя. Нужно от чего-то отталкиваться, пойми. Тебе нужны стандартные фразы вроде "Сколько стоит... ?" и "Как пройти... ?" или что-то другое?

    Well, his first task is to be able to speak, read and understand Russian as he is going to Moscow in a week. Writing is not his first priority. Of course, then he'll soon have to write long posts here on the board in Russian.

    I think you can survive in Russia without speaking Russian about 100,000 times longer than you can without air. Well, define air. You mean the oxygen hydrogen argon methane mix we breath? or just oxygen? I mean you could live pretty much indefinitely without carbon dioxide...

    Sooo I guess my point is, better comparisons please.

    And u can still experience Russia without speaking Russian. You can still fly without being a pilot (good comparison).

    Well, actually you are missing the most important element: Nitrogen. You'd be pretty much screwed without that, and Carbon Dioxide is alot more important than like methance or hydrogen (hydrogen???)

    Anyway, not to steal your thunder...

    Well, I wasn't really ranking them in order of importance, but if you'd like me to make a pie chart I can. Then maybe later we can eat it.

    And sure, nitrogen, whatever. You better give me my thunder back though, I like storms.
