I'm soooo happy that I found Duolingo! It's helping me a lot. In less then two weeks I'm going to Russia, Vladivostok( FEFU ) to study, and I'm super excited.
I am excited for you! Make sure to come back with great language stories!
The Russian language has many words that are close to English, French, German, Spanish and more. That may also help you. So the most important part is quick to learn their alphabet. For example, ресторан = a restaurant of Spanish Restaurante. There are many more words like this. Success.

By personal information they mean stuff that could be used to identify/find you. This is fine because they are not put in danger by people knowing that they are going to Russia. The examples they gave in the guidelines were : That includes your phone number, age, address, what time you’ll be at home, school name, email
Don't share personal information and don't ask for it.
was directed to authors of other comments --- that I deleted after jay16 commented (3 hours ago now) but before you did (2min ago) --- who were asking others to share email.
So jaye16's comment was correct and welcomed.
