    I Think It Sounds Beautiful

    I've always been fascinated by the way the Russian language sounds. Unfortunately, I live in an area that doesn't have Russian language classes--even at the college level. I've had language tapes, but gotten frustrated by the fact that the first 40,000 lessons are for travelers...
