Interview with Nina Rogovaya - Odessa National University

Hi everyone,

While I was in Odessa a month ago, I had the honour to interview Nina Rogovaya who teaches Russian in the National University of Odessa.

Nina in this interview does not only talk about the Russian language but also about memorisation, language learning techniques, psychology, optimal learning environment and more.

I hope you like it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AaouULegzAI

Best, Angelos

That was excellent, thank you. She was very easy to understand, I hardly needed the English subs.

Never heard of Birmingham eggs though and I live very near there!

She also talks at a reasonable speed that students should be able to follow. Thanks again, Angelos

Thank you so much for this. It brought back many happy memories of Russian kitchens, and reminded me of how much I like the sound of Russian. Maybe Skype wouldn't be a bad idea, although I'd miss the lessons in drinking tea through a sugar cube and cooking (over a мелький, мелький огонь!)

Speaking of intonation, compared to the Czechs, Americans have - I was told - a wonderfully song-like style of speaking, with dramatic rises and falls. It's all a matter of reference, I guess.

Thank you Rappelke! I'm in Saint Petersburg now where I'll be making more videos like this. This language has opened for me a whole new life and given me already tons of experiences. It's great to share all this with you guys.

I'm looking forward to the videos. Given the current political tensions, it's good to have at least some kind of contact with ordinary people.
