Why Use Our Consulting Services?
At SpeakRussianNow.com we strongly believe that speaking a foreign language is a great tool to have whether you are working overseas, dating someone from another country, building a friendship or a partnership, traveling abroad, or simply enjoying learning about other cultures.
However, speaking the language is not the only key to effective communication. It is also important to understand its culture. For example, if you are traveling in Russia and don’t really want to stand out as a tourist, knowing what to wear becomes quite important. Also, if you are meeting the family of your Russian girlfriend or boyfriend for the first time, you want to make a good impression and bringing a dozen of roses for your future mother-in-law is not going to help you!
This is because in countries like Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus an even number of flowers is used only for funerals, for all other occasions, you want to give an odd number of flowers. Other cultural differences like taking shoes off in someone else’s house, not whistling, understanding personal space, etc. become very important for building long-lasting relationships as well as for making a good first impression.
