With pleasure, Andrey! I provide day-to-day service to corporate clients (that is legal entities, or companies). I assist in opening accounts, organise financing and consult on all sorts of banking services (cash collection, salary projects for employees, installation of ATMs, acquiring, cash management tools, electronic banking, etc.). My work involves a lot of correspondence, telephone calls and sometimes meetings. Sometimes it is quite stressful, but on the whole I like it because I help people.

BTW: Tell us what you are doing. Or have I missed it?

I am curious about the forest about your forest designer profession as me being surrounded by forests in my area. What do you mean. Build a church here or a residential and pay up. You can chop up any tree you like as long as you pay up. And I don't give a damn what litter you drop when you have your barby.

I saw an article recently of Russians having a helicopter ride, only to find that their forest no longer existed surroundin moscow and instead it was full of big holes. Something you can't see if you drive a car along the shosses.

Guess you do not understand me. My first degree is Forest engineer (building roads in the forest, building industry shops where the timber is working over and so on)
My second degree is Landscape designer. My third diploma is Interior (Subjects) design (Like Karim Rashid :11109:)

And I don't give a damn what litter you drop when you have your barby.

I do not understand the meaning of this sentence. What does barby mean?

PS: I deny religion (except the Buddhism one or Itseism) so i will not build any churchs

Infact let us just play with words rather than sticking to the strict rules of Soviet English Grammar. My guess is it that it might be appreciated. Not everything is in the dictionary.

Why not! Languge is changed all the time. How often are authers critcised for wrong grammar by very conservative people, and the language is changed through time. Language changes every decade. In UK we can think of the author of Lord of the Rings He was heavily criticised and his answer was that he was an artist, and not a grammartician. Same applied to Shakespeare and later Charles Dickens, as an example to those who were heavily critcised.

A discussion with my Russian wife who is a linguist scientist, even Pushkin was heavily criticised for grammar, and yet again he claimed to be an artist of the Russian language. As an example he is responsible for change in the Russian language.

Believe me playing with words, knowing local words used, and most certainly getting to be used to modern expressions and phrases is all part of learning.

For those wanting to learn English at Advanced or proficient leval, then I do recommend watching movies produced from both USA and Great Britain. Get used to it, as everything is not in the common dictionary.

Common sometimes you do, but you do not mention it, for example: интертрепация (that is a mix between to talk about nothing and to re-express someone's thought) or радиатор (radiator is a person who work at a radion station) or Перис (Peris is a glamour girl) or Перец (Perets is a cool guy, a cool fellow but the original meaning is a pepper) or ( секретутка ("secretutka" is a mix of two words: secretary and prostitute) or famouse "ОКЕЮШКИ" (Okeyushki is OK with russian suffix which makes this word sound very russian) and so on.......

These word are not even in the dictionary of russian slang.

Old soviet ideas I think. In British English 5 oclock has no signicance.5 oclock is simply 5 oclock and that's it. 6pm or afternoon tea maybe, but I see nothing about 5pm or 5am as being important. It's a foriegn illusion for those to come with anything like that otherwise. But yet some writers will play around of what is supposed to so.

I'm curious. How does this happen when most EFL courses are in British English. And of course you are in Europe after all. However I do often wonder why even simple spelling in the Moscow Times is American, and why Moscow Times often refers football even in european leagues and word cup as soccer when of course it is football, and it is football in the Russian language. And why Moscow Time for example refers to words such as real Estate, when in real English it is estate agency. One will never know how the English language gets so muddled. Look at the English language of products claimed to European, yet in American spelling. What do you see :) FALSE and poor transltion from Russians and Chinese. Russians all I can say is this, learn the difference between American and English English before you dabble in marketing your products as British, European or whatever. Your tranlation is sh?? sometimes.

I think the problem is that we (not only russians) use more and more mix of English and American.

That is the world of communication, nobody cares about the purity of the language itslef but information is the most important in communication, not language.

I do not know if it is good or bad, C'est la vie!

The same happens with the Russian language when I watch and leasten to federal channels or radio stations.

Keep enjoying tv programmes and Movies and tv programmes in British British and American accents, perhaps also documentaries and news, That's all you need at your leval., same as my wife although sh is a linguist Russian and English she needs to continue the practice that she has learnt and not lose what she has got now.She needs more than just me, she needs to continue enjoying our culture and understanding of what is going on in the English language, She should never lose touch of it.

Yeah! :) Shooting balls and tennis ping pong. Yes I was that old :)


As for me, I attended a theatre studio and plaid in it's theatre. No games! No sport!

For me it was rather sport and going to the cinema, but moving to another uni, made me abandon bo :bash:th

I have never understood the theatre

Just try enjoying simple English international films or tv programmes first. Nothing too heavy in accent.

You are doing well. Keep enjoying tv programmes and Movies and tv programmes in British British and American accents, perhaps also documentaries and news, That's all you need at your leval., same as my wife although sh is a linguist Russian and English she needs to continue the practice that she has learnt and not lose what she has got now.She needs more than just me, she needs to continue enjoying our culture and understanding of what is going on in the English language, She should never lose touch of it.

Thanks! I try doing that. But frankly speaking, I prefer BBC for news, and Universal and SET for films. I faced some problems in understanding Dr. House but no problem with Sex in the City. No problem with BBC either.

But I totaly agree that without practice to maintain the level of the language is impossible. That's why I have lost my French.

Actually, a lot depends upon a play, a director and actors.

I can not say that I like all theatres, all plays even in my favourite theatre e.t.c.

But in General I take pleasure out of good performance after which It gives you something (ideas, thoughts, emotions).

And I like playing, it is unbelievable experience: audience, energy, team play and spirit.

Ok, I can speak, but with huge mistakes in everything.

I did have practice and did not have needs to speak (in business).

When I was in France, sure I used only French.

By the way my GF hated me when I spoke, she called the French language to be a bird language and a ground-squirrel language.... (it is her opinion, not mine).

And once she was in laughing hysterics, when i pronounced in Tunisia "Pardon, J'ais perdu"!

You understood Sex in the city? Then good for you. I could not stomach that series for more than a few episodes. But as you know it is all a matter of taste. To me a pathetic programme, yet some women loved it. I've got better thing to watch :)

I do not understand many things there but not language...

It is interesting for me from the point of view of phycology of women behavour + the film is light-minded or just light to be watched after work.

Though I am a bit tired of the series indeed.

Actually Sex, Mentalist and Dr House (my favourite) have good time when I can be at home...

I have SET, Universal, Hallmark, TV 1000 (there are just films), MGM (the same), Ski Fi (do not like at all), Fox life, Fox crime, so other channels do not show anything better.

Can you recommend anything better (I have got Akado)?

I see your points.

Sometimes it is a miracle when in plaing there is born of real emotions, love and energy. that is a theatre, the scene can not be reiterated as it was yesterday for example. + the language of theatre (aesthetics).

Try "Sovremennik".

My wife and family often ask when I have my headphones on watching a good movie or tv series of why Ilook so emotional at times. That only goes to show how a good series or movie might be.Do you mean to say you don't have good tv series or movies in Russia where you feel so emotional?

Perhaps I should start a thread of giving liks emotional programmes. And you can check for yourself if yo have no effect on your emotions in watching such programmes.

Thank you for that. I hope one day to rach that stage beond having to use Russian when necessary. I think it is about ime I learnt Russian culture to enjoy, rather than the minimum required necessary. It is difficult, and if you ask my Russians about enjoying they will say the same.

You have got me thinking. Should I be trying to set an example? Yet I am hooked on English speaking movies and tv programmes. But yes I will think about trying to enjoy the Russian culture.

Hope you are not getting mixed up. Many British movies are brilliant and most certainly tv programmes. Some get muddled and confused of which is which.

Believe there is a massive investment of British movie culture export on the the way in oncoming years. The government at last returning to invest on British movies. Yet another invasion to USA and the world without a doubt.

At least, british movies have brilliant sence of humour, better taste.

I am mad about the old series based on stories written by Woodhouse, as an example.

I bought all his books about the master and his servant (I would say the servant and hIs master), but movie is more interesting even.

I understand you but i do not understand British humor. To name a few Little Britain. To my mind it is not funny at all
