Multilingual Blogging

I’ve been wanting to try this for some time, but I have been terrified to do so. It’s called multilingual blogging. You see, my written Russian is just atrocious. I read a lot, I listen a lot, I speak a fair amount (not as much as I would like), but I rarely write, and therefore my writing is terrible.

I can’t guarantee that I’ll be translating every future post into Russian, but I’m going to do my best to start blogging in this fabulous language. I’m a little afraid of making a fool of myself, but I’ve actually spent the past six years making a fool of myself while learning Russian. (Bottom line: when you learn a foreign language, you’re going to make silly mistakes. Overall, I’ve learned to embrace it and move on.)

Russian-speaking readers (especially native speakers!), I welcome your corrections if I say anything that sounds a bit off or is blatantly wrong. I promise I won’t be offended if you correct me. :)

  1. Natalie,
    Regarding your decision I strongly recommend you to start writing in the Russian forum of Unilang. That place is specially devoted to language practice. In case you make a mistake you will be corrected in a friendly and highly informative manner. Many forum members are real experts. Besides, it would be harsh to make your beautiful blog look ugly due to corrections.

    • Спасибо за совет, Михаил! I will have to register for that site soon. I know you told me about it before, but I forgot about it. :P But I also want to introduce some multilingual content on this blog, so I will probably do some Russian writing on here.
