Meet for conversation or tandem partnering
A fairly big group with about half Ukrainians and half foreigners. Meeting near Kontraktova Ploschad. Formerly called Russian для иностранцев, but of course, everyone is welcome.
Monday nights are a great time for the Language Exchange Club. The main meeting is for Russian conversation with many Ukrainians coming to help the foreigners practice. We greatly appreciate it! Большое спасибо !
But there is another reason the evening has begun to work so well. We are delighted that the Ukrainian Group has also chosen to meet at Puzata Hata at the same time each week. And a small group comes to practice English early in the evening and most of the people stay. So many people have a chance to practice one, two or three languages depending on their interests and which of their friends are sitting at different tables.
Although the group meets for conversation, you will also see one or two of us foreigners who have brought our Russian lessons. And some of our Ukrainian friends take the time and patience to help.
This group has been meeting since the beginning of August 2009. Meetings have continued uninterrupted despite H1N1, quarantine, rumors of plague, and reports that the Martians have landed on Kreschatik.
