The thing I am interested to learn is Russian. Decades ago, when the Soviet Union still existed and the Sino-Soviet relation was on honeymoon, it used to be the first choice when Chinese people wanted to learn a second language. But ever since the collapse of the country, this language has lost its popularity and become a skill mastered by a fraction of people.
The idea of learning this language surfaced two years ago when I was listening to Katyusha, a Soviet folk-based song. It tells the story of a Russian woman called Katyusha. Standing on a steep riverbank, she sends her song to her beloved, a soldier who left his home to serve in World War Two and never returned. The lyrics and the tune ignited my enthusiasm to learn more about this country.
I am planning to learn it in a language center outside my university. It is said the class there is distinctive from the one I am familiar with, where we need to memorize a lot of grammar and words. Instead, it is full of exciting activities. For example, the teachers rarely tell students the meaning of the words directly this article is from laokaoya website but employ exaggerated moves and relevant pictures to let them figure it out by themselves.
It will not be easy to learn this language. After all, I am still struggling with my English. But mastering Russian will help me better understand this great country, which has done a marvelous job in architecture, religion, art, mathematics, and a wide range of other scientific areas. Without it, the dazzling civilization of humankind will lose half of its amusement. I feel really excited at thinking that I am going to learn this skill.
