From Russia with Love

These lovely kiddos are the reason why I've been studying so hard on my Russian.

And if there's 1 thing I've learnt in Russian. That would be "Ho-Roh-Shore"хорошо "Ho-Roh-Shore" хорошо, which means Good Good! Hee....

And today is a great day to end their last lesson with me.

You see, 1 of them has water phobia. And the language barrier between Teacher Jerry & the student doesn't make the situation any better.

Yes, I managed to help him overcome his water phobia with my Singlish mixed Russian accent after 2 days. I must have impressed the pool users that 1 Australian lady came to me and say

"You are very good. Very patient. I am so impressed with you. For the past 3 days I've been watching you. On day 1, he was crying and crying. And 2 days later, he is swimming! I am so impressed!"

How did I do that? Seriously, I have no idea. It's either Swimming is an international language or I must have been real good in speaking Russian. Hee... =)

Well, I had fun learning Russian for them. So, here's wishing my Russia students "Oo-dah-Chee" удача (Good Luck) & "Nah-dyee-ahz Skoh-rah Vuh-stray-tehm-syah" Надеюсь увидеть вас снова (Hope to see you again)

And how could I ever forget speaking in a gentlemen style "mehn-yeh zan-voot Jerry" Меня зовут Джерри(My name is Jerry) to them. =D
