Last week I shared a video by the Russian Online University. In all honesty, I had stumbled upon the video by accident yet found it to be incredibly interesting and useful. So, this week I decided to dig a little further Continue reading
In light of last week, I decided to carry on brushing up on what I’ve already learnt. This also got me thinking about what Russian I might already know without having actually learnt it, in other words cognates. Continue reading
The value of this week’s brushing up should not be underestimated, and here’s why…
- Everyone forgets that language is like any other subject – for things to stick you have to go over them.
- You can’t learn to run before you can walk – everyone has to start from the bottom when it comes to language learning, you can’t be fluent unless you know the basics to start with.
- There will be things that inevitably you’ve forgotten, rediscovering them counts as progress.
As the title of this post suggests, one week away from my Russian journey has slowly crept up to two and a bit weeks away. Instead of getting into the why’s, I think it would be a far better use of my time to jump straight back into things.
As for the week ahead, well that will spent much the same way. Word a day will happen as usual, and I might even venture to learn a few Russian colours but for the most part a quick Russian refresher is definitely in order.
Until next time, до свидания!
