Что делать в средy?

Оn Wednesday do the following:
  • We are working in Module Twelve - we are learning to talk about food.
  • Today we are going to put all that vocabulary you were learning the previous two days into practice. You will practice the dialogue about food. Use the recording below as well as one in the course.
  • Make sure to review your vocabulary daily.

On the Background image to day is very popular dish in Russia (Ukrainian by origin) is soup called Borscht. It is delicious. I had some students in past who wanted to cook some Russian food.
Here is the recipe of Borscht with meat (for vegetarians meat can be committed) By the way this website has lots of great Russian food. I tried several recipes myself and they all came out delicious.

Congratulations to Sarah G. who is going to Russia next summer with her Russian aunt and cousins.

I am so happy for you Sarah!

Sarah also shared that she is hoping to speak Russian fluently one day. Sarah also does some extra activities that help her practice her Russian. She just sent me a dialogue she has put together between two people where they talk about variety of things we have learned in class. Fantastic idea Sarah! You are my hero today!
