I think you are doing an amazing job, Anna. I really appreciate the work you put into this and I hope that it is worthwhile to you!

The main reason I decided to subscribe was for the PDF notes. Being able to see the words in print really helps me to learn, I think. Still, I have to listen to each episode several times in order to learn anything and I’m only at lesson п’ять!

I can’t think of anything I don’t like about the podcast. Your voice is very nice to listen to and your English is exceptional. You are clear in your pronunciation, though I still have trouble with this word, even after listening to Episode four five times – Зві́дки.

I also cannot understand how to say зу́стрічі and stick with До поба́чення. 🙂 None of that is your fault, though, and I don’t think there is anything that can be done about it. It’s a ‘me’ problem.

This was taken in May as I drove to Vancouver for a little vacation.
