Rushin’ to learn Russian

By Ursula Kallio / 2018-12-05 / In categories Posts


I’ve got a wild hair up my ass to learn Russian. Here goes a rushin’-to-learn-Russian 100-day challenge.

Näive timeline

I am thinking of roughly the following timeline:

If I throw in wiggle room for vacations, that takes me to about 2.5 years out. One thing I regret about my German studies is a lack of a more diligent study schedule. I suppose that is what happens when you move across the world. I have never pushed so hard as to pass a B1 exam in three months, and I am curious to see if I can achieve it. Why not find the outer boundary of doable.

I feel like a horse wanting to fly out of the gate towards a new language target.
