Barter agreement - reading books for language learning
Hello, my name is Sasha, I'm 27, well educated honest young man, have lots of language experience in Russian (as a former tv reporter and anchor, also as a graduated historian) and in English (around B2-C1). I'm an English teacher now. Well, at least, I'm trying to do my best.
I'm looking for a native English speaker. A good friend, maybe.
I can help you read, translate Russian books and learn some Russian. As a native speaker and a pretty smart guy I know lots of cultural stuff.
In return, I want you to help me with reading some English book I pick (probably on American history orrrr... you can pick some good book you want to read, and baaam, two birds, one stone, see?) So we choose books and work on each other's pronunciation and comprehension. You learn more - I learn more. Mutually beneficial. Also - more reading aloud, more articulation practice, right? And then cultural nuances, you know...
If you by any chance have southern US accent, there's a probability that I might accidentally fall in love with you. Kidding.
The reason I post this - to be honest, it is emotionally very hard for me to read alone. This lockdown thing is also a bit depressing, too. I want to communicate and make SILLY jokes and cartoon references. Good grief. Can't find any foreigners at home.
We can try reading regularly, say, every Wednesday or whatever, if you like or first conversation.
If you, the reader, are interested, please add or text me in Skype: Pernatov
We can also use Zoom (more preferably)
Anyway, have a good one and thank you for your attention! Reality's an illusion, the Universe is a hologram, buy gold, bye!
