Wow, the CouchSurfing meeting was awesome!
First I had a very interesting conversation (in English) with a Finnish guy traveling around Brazil, great guy.
Then, I met a Russian girl who's here for a Portuguese course and will be leaving next week. We began in Portuguese, but when I said I spoke Russian she switched to it and we went on for almost half an hour, and then her friend arrived (another Russian girl whom I already knew before) and we continued in Russian for some time. They said that since my wife doesn't speak Russian to me, they will help me practice it, yay! Haha

Finally my Italian friends arrived and (thank God) one of them doesn't speak Portuguese, so we could speak only in Italian. Every time I speak Italian it makes me wanna live there, live the language....maybe in the future =)

So it was basically it, English, Russian and Italian, and a very fun night with nice friends. I can't wait until next tuesday! =)

Sounds good! I've not been to the CouchSurfing meetings in my city yet, but I'm actually thinking of going for the first time tonight, and your post has encouraged me further. I'm wondering if it might be a better way to meet speakers of my target languages than the language meetups I go to, as it's obviously an international crowd and I imagine a lot of people of my age and with similar interests go there. I'll report back!

So the 6 Week Challenge has finally started! As I said before, I decided to go with Dutch, since I had stopped learning it when I started with French, and I need to get back to where I was (around lesson 54 in Assimil) and then move on. I started listening to some lessons and from what I can tell, I still have a good passive knowledge of the language. The main problem will be the active part, but since I'm already at the beginning of the active phase, I guess it'll help a lot!

Besides that, this week's CS meeting was awesome again. A lot of English and Russian practice. It was funny to see that one of the Russian girls who was there could not believe that I spoke Russian. Every sentence I said, she'd have a shocked look on her face and ask repeatedly "Do you really speak Russian!?!?" hahaha
And finally my wife is speaking in Russian with me! \o/ Yay! I'm going at least 3 days a week to the gym, and so far she has kept her promise.

Ik weet nog niet precies wat te doen met mijn Nederlands. Nu herzie ik alle lessen die ik eerder heb gedaan, maar op een verschillend manier. Ik luister naar de lessen en tegelijk ik probeer om alles te opschrijven. Het is vast, ik ben al op les 8 en ik hoop dat ik gauw tot les 54 (mijn laatste) ga bereiken.

Gisteren ben ik naar de CS meeting opnieuw gegaan. Het was prima! Mijn belge vriend was er niet, maar ik kon praten in sommige talen, meestal in Engels en Russisch, maar ook een beetje in Spaans, Italiaans en ik heb mijn vriendin sommige woorden in Papiamento geleerd.

Tot ziens!

Я уже давно не пишу тут на русском языке!

То, что раздражает меня больше всего на (моём) русском, это трудность при чтении русской литературы, или на самом деле литературы любой страны на русском языке.
Если я должен разговаривать с кем-то по-русски это обычно вообще без проблем, но мне очень тяжело читать книги на русском, это то, что мне больше надо улучшить.

Раньше, я пытался читать книгу, которую я купил в Москве ("Автостопом По-Галактике" Доугласа Адамса), а недавно я скачал и пытался читать книгу "Метро 2033" Дмитрия Глуховского, и почти ничего не получилось.
Я чувствую себя разбитым когда я должен поискать в словаре 2 два из трёх слов. Ну, что делать? Читать, читать и читать ещё.

До скорого!

Glad to see that my team mates are still studying! You're lucky to have so many opportunities to practice!

Надо же... У тебя отличный, но немного формальный стиль. Я думала это потому, что ты много читаешь. прикольно=)
Пробовал читать параллельные тексты? или еще LR может хорошо помочь)

А я вот не читала метро-2033... но видела эту книгу на польском в Кракове и на финском и шведском в Финляндии. может, стоит прочитать тоже, но полюбас не на русском)
(полюбас = по-любому))))))
