My Girlfriend Teaches Me Russian
This book is a Russian language survival guide for men who date or are planning to date a Russian woman.
Here, you will find numerous phrases and specific vocabulary that you are definitely going to need when communicating with your Russian girlfriend.
I didn’t imagine this book. I was not looking up at the ceiling thinking about what to write. The content of this book is 100% real-life language examples between my Russian girlfriend and me while living in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
I’ve been growing a list of vocabulary and phrases since the very first moment I met my girlfriend here in Saint Petersburg. Whenever she would say something that I found interesting or something that I didn’t know, I would jot it down. I included tender or beautiful words, romantic phrases, slang, colloquial expressions … everything! To compile this book, I also went through all our written communications—text messages, Whatsapp, Viber, VKontakte, and Facebook.
Please note that I was growing these vocabulary lists for myself. The idea of writing the book came afterwards. So, the communication was not influenced by the fact that I would be writing a book about it later.
Besides a huge list of phrases, this is what you’ll get in this book:
– Additional grammar notes and word associations (imperfective and perfective verbs, grammar cases, similar grammar structures, associated vocabulary)
– Tips on how to behave with a Russian woman
– Tips on how to approach and meet a Russian woman on the street
– Important elements of the Russian culture
