Hello Eva, You can check this list of English native speakers learning Russian and get in contact with anyone you like : Here are some tips as well to help you start learning English and improve it on the long run: To start learning English from the scratch you might need to take some initial classes to learn the alphabet , how to pronounce ,basic vocabulary and grammar. You can do that by taking classes in a language institute or by self learning online, although some guiding from a tutor at that early stage is recommended, unless you are able to depend only on audio/video facilities. Then you have to practice and increase your vocabulary through different means such as : *Reading at your level of comprehension simple texts or books and looking up new words . * Listening to English through music and possibly reading the lyrics. * Watching movies in English with subtitles in your mother tongue.

*  Chatting with natives online using voice chats or in real life .Mingling with natives is a very good way to be constantly listening to speech in English, even if you don't understand at the beginning. Create vocabulary trees and think in vocabulary groups. In this case When you see a cup your mind will quickly relate such words as knife, fork, late, dishes, etc. * Create a list of vocabulary themes, include the vocabulary, a definition and an example sentence for each new item. For example jobs, kitchen utensils, fruits and vegetables etc.. * Use Technology to help you. Watching DVDs is a great way to help you understand native speakers of English. You will pick up the accent and learn many new words. * Use visual dictionaries. A picture is worth a thousand words. It's also very helpful for learning precise vocabulary. There are a number of excellent English learner visual dictionaries for sale. * Use Collocations. Collocations refer to words that often or always go together. A good example of a collocation is to do your homework, take a break, have a seat ,keep a promise etc...
