"I found Russians were..." Language Tip by tvilot

Language, Moscow: 14 reviews and 8 photos

I found Russians were flattered if a foreigner even <b>tried</b> to speak the native language. The thing I gathered from the then-Soviet people is that they felt hated by the rest of the world and could not understand <b>why</b>. So when an American came to visit and even <b>tried</b> to communicate in Russian, people were very considerate and patient.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
