Hi! My name is Alex, I'm 23 years old and I live in Kiev, Ukraine.
Learning languages is one of my hobbies. It keeps me busy and gives me a sense of accomplishment. I also like how it makes it easier to communicate with people all around the world.
Having grown up in Kiev, I speak both Russian and Ukrainian (I consider Russian to be my native language because I'm thinking in Russian). I have also been studying English since my first years in school. I think my English level is somewhere between advanced and fluent.
At the moment, I'm focusing primarily on German and Spanish.
If you're learning Russian, take a look at this free podcast I've recorded — http://soundcloud.com/alexei-sholik/rus-tur-1
I'm willing to make new friends and get to know people from different countries.
