"Russian is one of the six official languages of the UN, similar to Italian in grammar and pronunciation. It is a world language - about 300 million people speak Russian throughout the world, particularly in Eastern Europe – which is an emerging market."
"Russia is the country of Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Chekhov, Shostakovitch and borscht! Learning the Russian language gives you a window into this fascinating country with its long history and rich culture."
