This is my recount of finally biting the bullet and finishing my first iTalki session as a student. It’s rather long, but I've attempted to share my experience as honestly as possible and sprinkled a bit of humour in there. I hope you enjoy!
For the last month and a little bit more I have been studying Russian as my first independently studied foreign language.

I have given myself 3 months to reach conversational fluency, because that coincides with the Polyglot Berlin conference.
How to learn the Cyrillic alphabet is one of the challenges I faced when I started to learn Russian. This post is my complete walk through on how I did it in very little time using mnemonics.
Why Learn Russian? Well, Russian is a wonderful language, and also the first language mission I did here on Actual Fluency. In this post I share my top reasons for why you should consider learning Russian.
