    lol, love Russian humour.

    Well for starters I am doing a Masters in International Relations and Global Issues at uni. This is my first year and I am taking Russian language for begginers as a module. It is worth a lot of credits, and hence, if I fail Russian, there is a high chance I will fail the year due to the weight of the module. On the other hand, should I pass this module, there is a high chance I pass the year no matter how my other modules go.

    Not to say im not studying for my other modules (which I am), but just to say Russian plays an important role in passing or failing the year.

    So you could say you have helped me very much by helping a IR student pass his first year, possibly a diplomat in the making, and maybe the guy who is to sign an Anglo-Russian treaty for everlasting peace, prosperity and love!

    Speaking of which, grammar exam on thursday, should be fun

    Again, thanks.

    Thanks.
    I have no sibling - У меня нет братьев и сестер. (literally "I don't have brothers and sisters" - there's no word meaning 'sibling' in Russian) or У меня нет ни братьев, ни сестер ("I have neither brothers, nor sisters")

    I do not like - Мне не нравится... (about single object)/ Мне не нравятся... (plural)
    I do not have - У меня нет...

    Thanks you very much.

    And finally, ''I like listening to music, reading and watching TV. I don't like studying, exams and stress''.

    I know how to say like and don't like, just not the individual words and such.

    Again, any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Your flair for diplomacy is pretty obvious. Hope you pass your exams and still remember some Russian afterwards!

    Thanks. Its an old nic of mine I use on some forums. I usually have it with a picture of Lenin with the Kremlin in the background for added effect, but whitheld doing so here because I thought it could be offensive to some, so I chose being on the safe side.

    I like your avatar/display pic. Old style cartoons have a beauty of their own that modern CGI ones simply do not match. Old style drawings rule

    Thanks. I think it went pretty well. And yes my intention is to some point in my life becoming fluent in it. I have seen many films and the language just sounds so awesome!

    Well, there is good news and there is bad news.

    Good news is I passed my Russian exam. The bad news is I missed one of my politics exams and so have a deficit of marks to pass the year. I have decided to take both the one I missed and Russian again, as its worth the most marks, and any extra marks I get with the ones I already have will help me significantly.

    Thus, there are some questions I have:

    What is the difference between saying:

    Я заинтересован в (I am interested in) and:

    Я интересеуюь (verb интересоватьяся) ? How would you conjugate this for Oн, Oнa, Oнo and so on?

    And if I wanted to say I like to do 'something' (the something being another verb, how would this be done?

    Я любйть to watch (смотреть - смотретю?) Я любйть смотретю тедевйзор? (Is that right? - I know how to conjugate the first verb, but not the second one after that) How would this conjugation be done generally, say if I wanted to say:

    I like to listen, to go, and so on? Do I leave the verb in the infinitive, or conjugate it as I would with I?

    Oh, and another 2 verbs I don't understand the difference:

    иэуцать - study (я иэуцаю) and заниматься -? (я занимаюсь?)

    Thanks guys.

    Also, is it appropriate I am listening to Чайковский ?
