Russian Conversation

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.

Dear Olga, you wrote ....
"I are happy to announce our new group "Russian Language Club" for travelers." Unfortunately I was not able to participate last week. Will it be again this week?

Kind regards

Hi, everyone!

Are the group's meetings still held? And how many people usually attend it?

Comment by Frank Revelo on March 15, 2015 at 7:25pm
There was a Russian club meeting on Mon March 9 (last week) and the people there said there would also be a meeting this week, Mon March 16, at the putzata hata, 3rd floor, group of tables next to the bar (the tables are initially occupied by whomever, but the are gradually taken over by the language group staying at 7pm). I will not be able to attend this week myself, unfortunately. The group consists of native Ukrainian/Russian speakers plus a mix of non-native speakers. Some of these non-natives, such as the polish, speak Russian at a very high level. Others, like me, are complete beginners. Supposedly, there is almost always a meeting on Mondays at this putzata hata.

Dear Rolf,

With all respect it's not a question about you. If the meetings are to be within LEC, than there has to be defined place and time (which are as they are) so that everyone interested can join.

Unfortunately I can't answer Iryna's question because I lost track of these meetings some time ago. I hope that the coordinator will show up soon.

Dear Iryna, 

thank you for asking. I am still a beginner of Russian, and I am interested to participate. It does not need to be Mondays or Kontraktova for me. 

Kind regards

Dear Friends,
Is there someone, who still is looking for russian speaking club meetings?

If group or meeting needs some organizational support - I may help with it.

Comment by Rolf Zinne on February 23, 2015 at 6:02pm
Dear all,
will it take place today? At what time? Near Kontraktova Place?
Thank you for answering.
