    It is me again



    Hello, it is me again, maybe I have come back to annoy you all. I am really sorry ! You have to understand that my main passion in life is culture and LANGUAGES. I love learning how to speak diffrent languages. Currently I have just started to learn how to speak Finnish. I can say for the people that may not know, that is a hard language to learn. At least I think so.

    I think that I can do it tho and so I came up with this idea that why not give myself a really hard challenge and learn one of the most hardest languages in the world Russian. I choose this because it is one of the closet countries to Finland.

    So I believe that if I suceed then wonderful, and if I fail, then I guess I can be optimistic and say "I tried".

    Now, I'll get to the point of why I wrote this post. I would like if possible to write another nice text in Russian. The only thing is that the text has to be translated in the written form of' transliteration'. As I can not write the Russian letters on my computer keyboard. Which to me is ashame because I would like to make it look offical. Just to be able to translate on this site is more than good enough.

    The text is:

    I would really like to be your friend because since I have lived here in Finland I haven't had the chance to meet and make any new friends. I hope that we can learn and share with one another our cultural backgrounds. As I personally believe that I am a very ignorant person when it comes to learning about diffrent cultures , and I would like to change this way of thinking.

    This is one of the main reasons why I hope that I can make good friends with you. I think that you can teach me a little bit about the Russian culture, and I can do the same for you but with English. The important thing that I would like you to know is that I want to be your friend for the person that you are. Not just for learning purposes. Otherwise then to me
    there wouldn't really be a friendship.

    I am really sorry if this is so long and hard to translate. As always I know it wan't be the exact translation as to how I've written it. If someone could translate it so it becomes understanble to a Russian person. Then I would be most greatful!!!

    Thank you so much,
    Francesca

    P.s. Do any of you think that I am to polite on here??

    Я очень хочу бы вашу дружбу потому что я недавно переехал в Финляндию и я не встречал еше новых друзей. Я надеюсь, что мы можем изучить и разделить с друг-другом наши культурные фоны. Я знаю что я медленен при изучении различных культур но я хочу бы измениться это мышление.

    и я еще не встретила новых друзей.

    Я надеюсь, что мы можем изучить и разделить с друг-другом наши культурные фоны.
    Я надеюсь, что мы сможем больше узнать о культуре наших стран и поделиться этими знаниями друг с другом.

    Я знаю, что я слишком медленно изучаю другие культуры, но я хочу изменить в себе это.

    Большой спасибо DennisM
    Anyways, Francesca, here is the translation in Cyrillic just in case you ever get your keyboard working. By the way, can’t you just cut and paste the Cyrillic text?

    Я действительно хотела бы стать твой подругой потому что пока я жила здесь в Финляндии, у меня не была возможности кем-нибудь познакомиться и подружиться. Я надеюсь, что мы сможем лучше узнать и обменваться знаниями о культурном наследие наших стран. Я лично не очень хорошо знаю культурные других стран, но я хотела бы изменить эту ситуацию к лучшему

    Это - одна из основнух причин, почему я надеюсь что мы могли бы стать с твой хорошими друзьями. Я думаю, что ты можешь поучить меня немного русской культуре, а я могу учить тебя английской. Я хотела бы, чтобы ты знала одну важная вещь я хочу быть твоим другом просто так, не только с целью обучения. Иначе для меня это не было бы настоящей дружбой.
