I can sing all the words to "Kalinka"--even do the flamboyant "HOI!" at the end--but that's just because my uncle was military attache to Moscow for a few years.

Russian - No. With a Russian accent, yes.

In fact I do it so much the kids can do it too. They grew up hearing it. So the Olympics are going to be a blast.

The kids have already started in on their

"In Soviet Russia....." jokes.

Russian is my third language and I love it. I work with several Russians who are helping me with it. They are all very nice about it and very patient.

Ya gavarit paruski.

Well, no, that's about all of the Russian I know save for a word here and there. My wife studied it back in her undergrad days, and she and our neighbor practice with each other from time to time.

I can catch one word in about 50, but I can hear and understand through a rather thick Russian accent thanks to those two. Made me rather popular with the Moscow office when I was working tech support for a .gov contractor several years back.

I studied it in college. It was so much fun - I really enjoy Cyrillic. I've retained the basics - Menyasavoot "Jrazz"... Eta maya ceemya.... Dobre Ootra...

I understand and speak very broken Ukrainian.
That's about all, though.

I had a coworker back in the day named Yana who was Ukranian. I was like, "Is it so crazy that your name means "I'm at"?!" She was like, "Huh, I guess it does."

I thought it was hilarious. "Ya na rabotye. Yana na rabotye!"


Cracked myself up.

I actually studied it in high school - during the height of the Cold War- mid sixties. Three years in HS and 1 in college. I liked it a lot! (I know Kalinika too and several other folk songs. One of my favorites (English translation): Dark is the night, only bullets fly over the steppes.

That's good, Jrazz! And I am fine too, thanks (no Russian keyboard on my laptop).

That is cool that you learned it in HS. My only choices were French and Spanish, which is why Spanish is my second language. I was an interpreter my senior year. I plan to stop at five languages.

20 years ago I was much more fluent than I am now. Now, I call it conversationally fluent...as long as I have time needed for thought.

I learned a different language after Russian (having spent the last years speaking said 3rd language with my H) so it really pushed back the Russian so I really do have to give the synapses time to "translate". But it's there...waffling around my head.

I'll maybe get back into it...I have a couple of boxes of Russian classics in Russian that I always meant to read.

Jessica - what got you started in it? and I agree with you - it's a fun language. The grammar is a wanker but...the rest of it is fun!

I took 4 semesters of Russian and minored in Russian literature in college. But that was decades ago and I'm REALLY rusty. I can read and understand what folks are typing in Cyrillic, so that's something, no?

Well, I was going to be a linguist in the army. I had taken the dlab and done very well and had everything ready to go. Then I found out that a linguist and a mechanic would never be stationed at the same place (XH was a Bradley mechanic- still is but he doesn't matter anymore) and I changed my MOS to a medical field so that I would be able to go wherever he was. I had picked Russian as my language and it is actually one of my biggest regrets that I gave it up (especially after how he turned out). It took my cousin taking the same path I had given up ten years later, and the strong jealous feeling I had when I heard what she had chosen, to remind me how much I loved languages. When I started my new job post-divorce, there were six Russians working in the small laboratory and I jumped in feet-first. I am teaching myself with their help and it is awesome.

I regret giving up something I love so much for someone else. I am not that naive anymore.
