  Me and Friends
by dr.firas

The great evening we passed in my first year when I lived in the university hostel with many different people from all over the world,
We were gathering in one of the rooms by turn and were passing the evening laughing and learning about each other.
For me it was great to practice my Russian with Russians and my Chinese friends, who were talking in Russian only not in English,
Ha ha ha but the bad thing most of the Russians in that hostel liked to practice their English so they were talking with me in English.
So it was a funny symbiosis.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
