The town is small, quiet, around the forest and fresh air. In Russian already know 1000 words. To learn the language before I was distracted by laziness, it is saturated with speed, and ambiguous expressions. But recently I took will in a fist. I understand others, even better when you speak slowly, but at a loss to explain himself. I want to proudly introduce myself: “I’m Russian!”, – not to have a passport in the pocket.”
