    I've lived in Spain and Germany but I've never been to Russia before and I don't speak Russian although I've started and I already know quite a bit of the Cyrillic alphabet. The language is so beautiful and the culture appeals to me more than Korean culture and it's true what you say about foreigners here although that's our fault for not learning Korean I suppose
    how do you plan to teach English to Russian people if you don't speak Russian :s surely you have be fluent in both languages to teach English

    The vast majority of the students, especially adults, already know enough to understand instructions and things like 'verb, noun, adjective etc'. The only students I have who don't know anything are very young children and we do very basic stuff like 'Hello, what's your name? My name is...' through song and dance so it's usually fine but it does help to know a little. Hopefully, my Russian classes will start soon
