5 Russian Movies to Watch (Comedy) – A good way for improving your language (only for intermediate)

Many have said that to fully immerse yourself in a language, you need to try to comprehend their way of thinking. But, to understand their way of thinking, first of all, you need to speak their language. Like it or not, you can’t deny that learning a language of your destination country, especially if you plan to stay there longer than any normal tourists will ever do, is as important as the air itself.

Feeling Under the Weather in Russia

Spring is always inspiring and invigorating. During the springtime our body starts to react differently. It's as if the energy that was previously “boiled away” during the winter suddenly rose to its peak. The brighter the sun shines, the happier we feel. The greener the grass, the more itchy feet we have. It’s just too hard to stay at home working like a dog when it is too sunny to be true outside, isn’t it? What we want to do is just sit in the sun, lying on the grass and sipping some coke as company. We don’t even care that the wind might still be as…

RUSSIANS’ NAMES

  A name is an essential thing for everybody in the world. I don’t know, maybe an E.T needs a name as well. But, when I remember Shakespeare’s quote - “What’s in a name?”, I feel doubt again. Maybe he has a reason.  Do names means nothing? In Indonesia, names mean everything. Your name is something that your parents gave especially to you. A name is a prayer and a hope of parents for their kids. That’s why, we have many interesting names, starting from real Indonesian names which are based on regions (Bambang - Javanese, Made - Balinese, etc).  Sanskrits names (Kirana, Gayatri)  and international names…
