I’d like to introduce you to Ruth, one of my online Russian students. Ruth is a former BBC journalist and, for the past two years, has been working as a journalist with NATO-TV in Afghanistan. Ruth and her band WHITE CITY are kicking off a tour of former Soviet Republics soon. It’s called “BIG IN THE STANS” and I encourage you to follow Ruth and her band via Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, MySpace, etc. See the links below:
Online Russian Lessons with Alla Shubina:
In this mini-lesson we explore some vocabulary which might be encountered while on vacation. We visited Bailey Island, Maine and enjoyed fresh sea air, sunshine, the spectacular rocky coast and, of course, Maine lobster.
We decided to take a week’s vacation in Egypt to escape the winter cold of Ukraine. Our trip lasted from January 13 to January 20. While there we visited the Pyramids, the Sphinx, Cairo, Karnak Temple, Luxor, the Al-Deir Al-Bahari Temple, and the Valley of the Kings.
