Paruski lessons....

I have been trying to brush up on my Language skills

We have been trying so hard to learn Russian, but have not succeeded in doing much other then butchering it... A common comment I hear now is that "They understand what I am saying, but is my grammar is ooshis....I think that's bad"... since I started learning Russian , I have even lost the little French that I knew, and what is worse is that it now only takes a month or two to lose my grasp of English... like I ever had a grasp on the English language.... LOL..

Well the best way to learn I think, is to just spend lots of time with the kids... especially the Kyrgy kids... they are just learning Russian them selves, so their vocabulary is small...

When it all shakes out, I seem to have a good command of Rusklish...and if ever lost for words, the odd Kyrgy word will do....

So this is how you say "This Little Piggy" in Rusklish. I have to play this over and over, so I can butcher it some more and teach Dylan my version. Eta malinky sweenya....
