Hilarious! What a riot!

We were, however, a tad surprised to find we old pair can be turned into an alcoholic beverage but pleased we are high-quality!!  :D ;) ::)



"Nalyvka" - 15-40% drink similar to liquor by taste and smell. This drink is produced of fresh fruits (classics: cherry, plumps, apricot etc.) on high-quality vodka base.

     I am enjoying these little lessons.   The cost is right   :)

     "No Konia"  -  onto the horse is similar to the Polish toast "into the stirrups" (Strzemiennego!).

Thank you, Carl, for your comment. *'Plums', for sure. The topic is obviously to make a head going round :-)

The plum wine in my neck of the woods has a kick, half a glass will knock you on your...

While I appreciate the language lessons are for absolute beginners, everyone wanting to speak even basic Russian and Ukrainian should learn Cyrillic first. My wife forced me to learn linked handwriting and printing (at the same time :'() when I first started learning, despite making me want to jump out of tall buildings it really helped my progress.
