    As A Second Language

    I've been studying Russian at university for a few years now. Unfortunately, this semester my school cancelled the Russian class that I was supposed to take. It's been a bit upsetting because I've really fallen in love with the language. I guess I'll just have to stay in practice...

    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.
