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.
