Another link: http://ktrk.kg/ru - news from Kyrgyzstan with short clips in Russian.

Well, it seems that I'll visit this page from time to time. Yet I won't join the team since I don't want to join 10 teams and then fail in all of them :P .

Но я с удовольствием поговорю с вами на русском :)

Кристиано in Cyrillic, I think.
I fixed 2nd sentence using a reflexive verb, because it was looking like you were intended to use it. However, it's easier and more common to hear constructions without it: Я живу в Бразилии и учу русский [язык].

Does anyone know how to change the name of your log?

I was accepted into a great university unexpectedly, and will be a little busy moving and stuff but I will try and post. I will be definitely majoring in Russian, so this works out perfect, I'm pretty happy.

When did everyone want to organize a Skype meeting? Maybe even just a handful who are keen?

Congratulations, Zerzura! You'll certainly make great progress in Russian.

When you edit the first post of your log, you can also change the title.

Concerning Skype meetings: I won't be able to lead one this weekend, but you guys are free to organize one if you like.

@Via Diva: Thanks! If you don't mind, could you explain something? I didn't understand
when should I use учиться or изучать or учать.

изучать is the perfective form?

I understood that учиться is reflexive, but when I want to say that I study something,
should I use я учусь <something> or should I use the verb учать?

Cristianoo, I can't recall all the causes of using reflexive verbs and I think textbooks should have some explanations about it. I can give some examples though:
Тебе нужно учиться! - imperative, "You should study". Don't mix up with Тебе нужно учить! which would be not clear enough and can also be understood as "You should teach".
Учиться - это хорошо. - Studying is good. You can say Учить - это хорошо, but it also wouldn't be very clear.
"учать" is wrong, you meant "учить".
Изучать is imperfective (что делать?), изучить (что сделать?) - perfective.
If you want to say that you're studying something, you can use both reflexive and usual verb, but you should do it differently:
Я учу язык - Я учусь языку - and, I must say, we don't use reflexive verbs like this often.
I think that reflexive verbs is more appropriate in sentences like "I learn to write" - Я учусь писать.
