I’m looking for someone who speaks Russian who might be interested in doing some language exchange with me (I am an English native speaker and an English language professional). Or if you already speak English well, then maybe just help me out over a beer. I’m going to Minsk, in Belarus in a couple of weeks and I just want to be able to say a few things, like hi, good morning/afternoon/evening/night, do you speak English/German/Spanish, I don’t speak Russian etc. I have already learnt the Cyrillic script, but it’s going to take some practice getting used to it.
I know I can find these things on the Internet, but it’s much better to have a native speaker to help out and it’s way more fun over a drink :-)
What do you think? Look forward to hearing back from you.
