Anyone who has experience living or growing up in another culture, knows how difficult it is sometimes to preserve one's own native language and culture or teach children to speak that language properly. The Internet makes it a little bit easier, but the challenges pretty much remain. It is even harder to find resources that will help children to understand the value and beauty of speaking two languages.
The goal of this blog is to create and gather resources that can help kids appreciate their knowledge of two languages and learn and improve their Russian. Primarily, it is intended for parents with kids from English-speaking countries. Parents from Russian-speaking countries who want to teach their children English, will find this blog useful as well. "Russian for Kids" will contain my translations of English and Russian children's rhymes and songs and other materials that can make learning and speaking Russian fun. The blog will use both English and Russian languages.
