Babbel Introduces New RUSSIAN Language Course!

GOOD NEWS! Babbel recently introduced the thirteenth foreign language, Russian, as part of its overall offering. I'm super excited when I saw this notification through my email! Since I'm subscribed to the annual All Language Pack, I intend to explore for a bit.


A screenshot of the initial offering. I'm sure it will only get better from here!


Why am I excited (apart from the fact that I'm a current subscriber/learner)? Recently, during my trip in the south of Italy, specifically in Puglia, I had the good fortune of becoming a housemate with a very nice, intelligent, and articulate Belarusian named Natallia. She speaks fluent English, Italian (achieved C1 certification of the language), and of course Russian. I've always been fascinated by the Russian language and to me the characters seem complicated, so when I saw that Babbel is now offering this language, I took it as a sign from God to dabble with it.

Natallia, if you happen to find this post and read it, please get in touch with me. I have forgotten to ask for your contact details and I hope to reconnect with you. All the best in your future and I wish you all happiness for you-know-what!
