Through the U of C… interested? (I think that link may not work.

Click on Languages, and Russian and you should be able to see it.)

Cost is $225, every Thursday night from Jan 27 – March 31.

    handy in Chinese restaurants!).

    Besides, weren’t you the one who suggested that French was also widely
    spoken in Russia? 😉 (I still wonder if that’s actually true.)

    fun. And we need more beer.
