Happy end of the month! 🙂 Was July a good month for your language learning efforts? I got some learning in, like going to this Russian dinner party (discovered there that Зоя is a common name for a female goat + толкучий рынок refers to the kind of market where you’ll get a толчок, push, from the crowd) and started watching a movie about WWII Russian time travelers. What kinds of new things did you try this month?

Also played эрудит (Russian Scrabble) with other learners.

Here are a ton of good links to help you squeeze a little more Russian into your month, starting with the source of all the funny pictures below: atkritka.com (and then I’ll see you back here in 2 hours!)…

    Oh my goodness, you are a minefield of great info. How do you find all these resources! lol. I will be sure to check them out. Your dinner party post looked so much fun. I wonder if there’s something similar near to me – would love to go to one! 🙂
