    Native Russian speaker is looking for English Pen Pal

    Hi!

    In short:

    I'm looking for native english speakers who would like to practice their Russian by writing letters. I wouldn't like to feed spammers by posting my email here, so please send me PM if you are interested in practicing that way.

    In details:


    I've already sent some "Hello! If you are still interested..." letters to those who created topics like this one here. But no one answered Maybe they didn't answer because they had already found people to talk with. Anyway, it was so strange that I've decided to open my own topic which you are reading now and then answer *all the* incoming messages as they come. I've got enough free time on evenings to spend writing in English.

    My name is Sergey, I'm a 22 year-old programmer, living in Moscow. I'm a native Russian speaker who would like to know English and can help someone to learn Russian.

    I've been looking for penpals since I first saw the translation of this word in my dictionary (actually, that was 3 days ago), but I've often wanted to make my practice more real Writing bug-reports is cool, but nothing makes your language skills better as a good discussion does.

    "Make it Work, Then Make it Fast". That is how good programmers make their programms. That is how I'm trying to improve my language skills: I started from reading technical books, then I started to write simple letters and now I'm trying to listen podcasts. And I've already listen some ones made by BBC.

    Another great rule would be "One day - one big letter". That is rule I have been trying to use since I started to write in English, and it never tricked me.

    Now I had better stop writing and start waiting your PMs =)

    Good bye!

    P.S. This letter may seem full of dispensable information, but it must tell more about me.

    Re: Native Russian speaker is looking for English Pen Pal

    Ну же, англичане! Не могу поверить, что на всем земном шаре не найдется хотя бы одного человека, которому хочется попрактиковаться в русском.

    Я даже не настаиваю на серьезной взрослой переписке. Можно сделать веселее. Мы с вами, например, можем писать повесть на пару: сегодня я пишу страницу, завтра - вы Или сказку, А? Вы на русском, а я на английском.

    P.S. Кто нашел 7 ошибок в первом сообщении, тот молодец =)

    Privet Sergey........

    I'd be interested in a pen pal correspondence......however I need to set up a box at my post office first.........

    we can correspond by email a couple of times until I get that set up......I'll probably do it Monday.......it's already monday where you are.

    I am just starting to learn Russian though.......so I cannot write much in Russian......

    I have a whole bunch of questions though......about declension of nouns, adjectives, etcetera........

    take care
    Athena

    ps. How can I download russian font for these forums?

    Thanks

    Hello Sergey!
    I received you PM earlier this morning and I replied it.
    I'm not sure if you have received my PM or not because it seems like my "PM" may not be working..I'm not sure.
    If it's possible, do you think you can just email me or send me another PM with your email address?
    Thanks! ^_^

    Thanks to all who has written to me. Now I have people to talk with, so this topic can be considered outdated.
