Chris’ Russian Tutoring Sessions Episode 6

It's time for another Chris' Russian Tutoring Session! In this series I allow you to be a fly on the wall as I painstakingly try to improve my Russian word by word. There is no editing to make me look good, this is the real deal, and it's painful for me to watch. I hope you enjoy it!
