Have a lingot, I can spare it :-D

I remember the first time I ever talked on Skype in Russian, with a Duo friend. We talked for about two hours, I had no idea I was actually capable of this.

Kind of on and off at first, but probably 4 years worth of study. This was more than two years ago.

It has, thanks :) I made more conversations today, and literally had a back and forth Russian conversation (in text) for several hours straight today.

We don't say "очень отлично", i think it's bad Russian. You can say "отлично", "очень хорошо", "молодец" instead. No offence. :)

Congratulations! It's so difficult to speak over the phone in a foreign language. It's why I prefer to have conversations in person or to send email)
