I'm trying to get a basic proficiency in Russian, as my wife is Russian, and I want to be able to speak with my in-laws. Eventually, to be proficient enough to hold down a job, so I could consider moving there. I'm looking for a partner who would like to have basic conversations with me about once a week. I can read the cyrillic alphabet (that was easy) though my spelling is poor. I know some basic phrases, but fed myself in Moscow by pointing to things and saying please.
I'm also very patient, if someone would like to learn English. I have a highly advanced understanding of my native language. I'm well-read, have done some professional writing, and have a very clean American accent. I'd like to have a regular chat at a convenient time (weekends?) over Skype. If my partner is located close to New London, CT, I'm glad to meet in person sometimes, over coffee.
