    I support who wants to learn Russian!!!

    I support all who wants to learn or tries to learn Russian language!!!
    My name is Sergey. I was born and live in Moscow, Russia. Today I am learning English at home and I think that I can help people who study Russian in exchange for your help with my English studies.
    Your level is not important. But it's better if you have got a small base. I am going to assist you to teach verbal Russian. I also will teach you simple modern phrases that are useful in everyday live and help you in future. You will obtain some knowledge and skills In Russian.
    At process of leaning foreign language it is extremely important to set up the correct pronunciation at once! I speak classic Moscow Russian without any accents and dialects.
    Simple correspondence in my opinion is a long, tiresome and not effective way of studying language. Important not only to hear speech but also to see an articulation at conversation. For this reason I suggest to use Skype or ooVoo.
    I don't speak English that well. But for you this is more plus, than minus. I hope that my offer can be interesting

    Welcome aboard

    You can add me to Skype. My username there: catty_girl24. I have a decent base in Russian and am native to English.

    Where did you study Russian?* After "did" you don't need to use the past form of the verb.

    To answer: Self-studies, a single short course and also just from life in Israel amongst Russians. About a year and half of studies so far.

    Oh, thank you Valda! I am inattentive.
    It happens. I also noticed some inaccuracies in the original text:
    I speak English not good. -> I don't speak English that well // Or: My English still needs some work
    At process of leaning... -> "In the process of learning".
    and think that l may help persons who are studying Russian in exchange on yours help to me in studying English - > I think that I can help people (avoid using "persons", although it is technically a word it sounds like you're saying "человекы" instead of "люди") who study Russian in exchange for your help with my English studies.

    Maybe there is more, but I don't wanna overload you

    I am still in Israel, I have close Russian/ex-soviets friends and acquaintces though.

    Spoken English, that's exactly right But there is also conversational English. The latter (latter = mentioned second) refers to "a person's ability to have a conversation in English." The first (Spoken English) refers to the way that people speak English.

    Ор, я почитал некоторые твои фразы и комментарии - а ты щас очень(!) хорошо пишешь по-русски! Tell me please: "Yet" - what does this word mean and how to use?
    Could you correct my English, please.

    Yet is like "up till now", though it hints that the situation might be completed in the future.

    My Russian isn't that good yet (yet is indicating that it's a work-in-process and that it's likely to get better)
    I haven't seen the movie yet (yet is indicating that I'll probably watch it in the future)

    I think все еще is the most similar

    You can also use "still" in this context but it's mostly to negate expectations

    My Russian still isn't that good yet ("I know you've expected my Russian to be better, but it's still not that good)
    I still haven't seen the movie ("I know you'd thought I've already seen the movie by now, but I haven't").

    Ага, тогда имеет ли какой нибудь смысл фраза: I'm still here yet. (я хочу сказать "Я еще здесь", используя слово yet.
    Или если есть слово "still", то уже нельзя употреблять "yet"?

    My Russian is still isn't that good yet = My Russian is still isn't that good. Why you added "yet"? I do not see a difference
    Could you correct my English, please.

    'My Russian *is* still isn't that good yet' -> That's incorrect. Omit the 'is.'

    "I'm still here, yet I needed to leave an hour ago."

    The above sentence expresses your current situation (present) but don't be confused with saying 'needed' (you might think that refers to some actual past event). It's merely stating it *should* have been a past event (according to the narrator).

    'Yet' in this context is the same as using the word 'nevertheless.'

    Using yet and still

    No shit sherlock... typos happen :P
    Noticed it when was making this post

    It's perfectly OK to say "I'm still here yet" under the right conditions. Meaning, "You might have expected that I'm not here anymore, but I'm here, though I'll probably not be here soon.


    My Russian is still isn't that good yet = My Russian is still isn't that good. Why you added "yet"? I do not see a difference
    First off, I accidentally added another "is"... must be due to excessive editing of my text I just noticed it.

    It's just "My Russian still isn't that good yet".

    Oh, you mean why did I write both still and yet here?

    Double emphasis. The "yet" just add more emphasis that I'm planning to make it good, even though just the "still" could have sufficed.

    Let's break it down even more:

    My Russian isn't that good - Simple statement, indicating a constant condition
    My Russian still isn't that good - I'm working on it, but in the meanwhile it's not that good
    My Russian still isn't that good yet - I'm working on it, and it's going to be good in the future probably

    Video chat is simply a chat with video.

    What language do you use there? Well, that depends on you and whomever you're speaking with.

    Oh! You mean Masterrussian's video chat that we do here! I thought you mean in Skype in general!

    Well, usually around evening in your time, can even approach nighttime (refering to your timezone). English and Russian are used of course. We coordinate them in the chat here that you can activate at your lower right corner of the screen.

    There is also a thread about it somewhere in the forum... I'm sure you could easily find it if you haven't already.
