I'm not in Russia now, I'm in Minsk. Belarus is slightly dull due to the isolation it finds itself in, but Russia is supposed to be fun. Have you started getting to grips with the Russian Cyrillic alphabet? It looks daunting but you can learn it in an hour or so, and then just practise spelling locations in Russian (not Russia) - getting to grips with it.
I'd envisage that the first year or two will be the hardest verbally because of the lack of vowels in certain words. It's good that you're passionate though, you need that for a language of this difficulty. All I'll say is, it's no Spanish
Oh right. Well I applied for Russian/Russian Studies, and I'm slightly worried about the difficulty of the language.. I'm absolutely passionate about it so I guess thats a plus, but all the same, I know it's very demanding. I haven't had any offers yet but if I don't get any to where I want to go I'll take a gap year and go there for a few months. Are you there now? Whats it like?
Independently, yes. My degree will be in geography, but I hope to learn Russian at the same time as this.
How about yourself?
Are you studying Russian?
