Learning Russian

Project Prochnost: Week 7

There is one term for the past week and it is all that. No literally, it is ‘all that’. I did some fresh writing and some progress on a couple other goals alongside Prochnost.¬† Continue reading “Project Prochnost: Week 7”

Project Prochnost: Week 6

There are probably a hundred different things that I did this week but Russian practice wasn’t one of them. I was attending a friend’s wedding and was back home only by the middle of the week, something that resulted in taking care of a lot of other things but that’s not my excuse. I am just sorry to have neglected my studies. Continue reading “Project Prochnost: Week 6”

Project Prochnost: Week 5

As much as I planned to pursue grammar this week, I couldn’t study it much due to my pending vocabulary practice. I am attending a friend’s wedding this weekend, so more of Duolingo next week and less of writing is in order. However, I have found an app for Basic Russian vocabulary, so that sounds pretty convenient on the go. Continue reading “Project Prochnost: Week 5”

Project Prochnost: Week 4

Project Prochnost: Week 2

Another week has come to an end and it’s been pretty great. Like I mentioned last week, it took me some time to get comfortable with Cyrillic alphabets and it’s indeed better after a fortnight. Continue reading “Project Prochnost: Week 2”

Project Prochnost: Week 1

It’s been a week since my last post and I promised of weekly updates, so here I am. I spent 45 minutes every single day, right with a timer, trying to get the hang of Cyrillic alphabets. Continue reading “Project Prochnost: Week 1”

Prochnost: a tribute

“.. during all the years until 1961, not only was I convinced I should never see a single line of mine in print in my lifetime, but, also, I scarcely dared allow any of my close acquaintances to read anything I had written because I feared this would become known.” –¬†Solzhenitsyn Continue reading “Prochnost: a tribute”
