One of the best conversation starters with a Russian male (and often female) of any age is football. By football, we mean soccer – the only kind of football as far as Russians are concerned, and the sport nearest their hearts. Our lesson will help you in sharing your football thoughts with Russians – which will immediately warm them up towards you. If you don't happen to bad-mouth their home team, that is.

In today's grammar, the focus is on the verbs of motion again: We will compare their different usages in the past tense, as well as learn prepositions used for moving to open spaces.
