Learn Russian online: Mobile Communication

Mobile Communication

Let's turn off our cell phones, everybody, and do some Russian! Today's topic will be – guess what? Cell phones and text messaging in Russia. Russians love these little handy toys as much as anyone, and they sometimes overdo their mobile communication, but don't we all?

Today's grammar deals with the one and only past form of Russian verbs – very easy! Also, we'll learn how to say "I love you" as a sweet addition.
