I am just beginning my Russian studies at the age of 50, and I know very little Russian as my class has not begun yet. I am interested in corresponding with a Russian speaker as a way to understand cultural differences. I will be happy to help with your English studies.

I am American, from a rural area. I am a teacher of young children. My interests include politics, history, hiking and other outdoor activities, horses, pigeons, reading, education (my own and teaching), geneology, health, geography, music, gardening... I have many interests.

We had a wonderful Russian teenager live with us last year as a FLEX student and I am interested in visiting Russia in a few years to visit his family. I would like to understand more before I go. I would also like to speak at least a little Russian.
