I hope it's okay that I write this (mostly) in English. Я плохо говорю по-русски. I'd only cause you readers a headache. As I understand, Голос is Steem for Russian speakers so I'll keep this short and sweet as I'm writing in English.
I decided to start learning Russian some months ago. I've always found the language and the culture fascinating. It's been quite a challenge but I can now construct simple sentences and read cyrillic text without issues.
I've added the Russian layout to my keyboard (still can't wrap my walnut-sized brain around which letter is where).
Я смотрел два фильма Тарковского: Сталкер и Солярис
Admittedly slow movies but I really liked their overall aesthetic. If anyone has any movie recommendations I'd be delighted to hear them!
I'm using Duolingo, RT.com for vocabulary and a book called The New Penguin Russian Course for grammar.
I've been listening to Кино, Время и Стекло and a bunch of other Russian music.
Спасибо за чтение!
Looking forward to being able to post in Russian here with you people! :)))
