Learning Russian too

Another gem I found in the Vidalia Public Library is Marguerita's Rudolph's You Can Learn Russian, published in 1964 by Little, Brown, and Company in Boston and Toronto. 63-13465 is the Library of Congress number; no ISBN was evident. This seems to be oriented to the 3rd through 8th grades. It comes with charming illustrations and a glossary, with an introduction to the Cyrillic and words given in the Cyrillic font.

More about this book later.

One lovely on-line find is this, apparently from a Russian spouse or girl friend, or maybe not, but conceptually, it's superb!

This week is turning out to be something like "Learn a Language Week" on our Meeting Place. I would like to remind you that if you do well, or even if you don't but you learn significantly more than those around you, you might be able to market your language skills, turning them into a passport to travel and gainful employment! Check this out!

I've never really been good at learning other languages. I do however enjoy trying :). That site you linked is a great resource.
