For those of us who are struggling to drum up some enthusiasm and committment to try and learn at least a little of the native language of our Russian partners, time to take some inspiration from this guy...

If you have an android phone, there is an app called Russian in a month free. It's not too bad if your sitting bored for an hour.

I've got the Russian Earworms app for the iPhone which is pretty good but it's still not easy finding the time with a busy work schedule and family life. I actually find I'm learning more Russian words from my 2 year old daughter than any other source Unfortunately though that's just random odd single words and not any sentences or grammar.

SERIOUSLY...someone needs to DELETE this jokers account. He just posts rubbish on the forum and is only posting to maximise the exposure of the spam link he's put in his profile

On a serious note my wife is offering Russian lessons in the Edinburgh area, she can teach you as a group or as a one to one lesson at a place of mutual conveinent place. We are on holiday to the 8th December but we would be happy to start lessons when she returns.

Same in the Birmingham area my wife a qualified (in Russia) teacher would be quite happy to help out others learn Russian (or learn English as she used to teach English as a foreign language in Russia).

She tells me I am the worst pupil she has ever had! But still I know a little mainly Prastee

Cost, if any, a private matter between Yulya and pupil

I've found that memrise app to be useful as something i can use each day on the walk to work or around the office
But my job in instrumentation so often I'm just chilling even when working so I have time to actually use it each day.

But it only goes so far - need to find the time for a more intense course or method.

I was already learning and interested before I happened to meet my partner as my ex was Ukrainian but since I then met her and it got very serious then even more reason to continue my studies to a higher level.

If you're thinking it's difficult - try Icelandic. I've lived here over 2 years and can't learn more than a handful of words!!! It's insanely difficult.

Hey, if you are going with learning languages to make sure if you are going with learning languages, you visit native speakers country. For example, if you going with russian, check for Russian language course Kiev to set you language level on the other side..
