For the past four years, since September 2008, I have been studying the Russian language. I started with an Elementary Russian class and just kept going from there. I took a language class on my year-long study abroad and eventually graduated with a major in Russian language & literature.
Today I would like to announce that I am moving on to a new stage in my life, one without the Russian language. That’s right – I am transitioning to a new field for my future career, one in which I will not need to speak Russian. After all, English is the international language of the world, right? I know it’s the language to know in finance. I spend so much time learning Russian that once I stop, I will have loads of free time to devote to other activities. And if I’m ever in a situation where I need to read something in Russian, I can just hire someone to translate it. That’s what translators are for, right?
So, Russian, I bid you adieu. The past four years have been fun, but it’s time to move on.
Happy April Fools’ Day, everyone! If you believed that, then I accomplished by goal of tricking you! 🙂 I will never, ever, ever stop speaking Russian.
