    Native Speaker

    I am a native speaker of Russian, but I have lived in the US for over 20 years, so my command of English is not too shabby either. You can msg me if you have any questions, I'll be happy to help.

    I Do

    I learnt to speak Russian at school. I have dated Russian women and I married a woman who speaks fluent Russian. So learning Russian has been a plus in my life.
