    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.

    I'm a Russian Major

    I'm majoring in Russian at my school - I'm taking fifth-year Russian this fall, and I'm working on a translation of Dostoevskii's first novel. Russian is one of the only things I really and truly care about.

    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.
