Indeed, it was a lot of fun to hop around different languages a bit. I was happy to be able to understand most everything being said, but I'll have to work more on my output for next time so I can keep up with the conversation better. :)

Yeah, I should also work on my active skills! Maybe, I'll finally give places like italki a chance or do a conversation class.

Cristina, there's nothing wrong with your German! You may feel more confident in French or Spanish, but it's actually very good! I was impressed! :)

EDIT: YnEoS, please don't get me wrong. I thought you did a good job in your foreign languages today! I just meant to say that, as my focus isn't on language production either, I should probably dedicate more time to it just as you plan to do. However, I now see that saying "yeah" to what you wrote might cause some misunderstanding.

@Expugnator: We missed both our Brazilians today, hope we'll see you soon :-) We talked about doing
another Skype session in a not too distant future.

And you guys both did great in the conversation. I sound good because I speak fast, but that does not
necessarily mean that the quality is any better.

Sorry I couldn't be there. Sunday evenings are hectic for me.

If anybody wants to chat in Russian, feel free to add me to Skype (milesaway1661). Just
be sure to tell me who you are when you add me. Then you have the chance to talk to a
quasi-Russian (me) and a real Russian (my spouse).

Hah, no worries, I figured your meaning.

Hi comrades, I'm back on HTLAL and Team Катюша after a too-long absence. A short rest lapsed into a long lazy lay-off, and I think I went around 65 days without studying any Russian. I feel really bad about that, but I feel better now because сегодня я изучил в течение три часов and attended первый урок нового курса русского языка. Now I'm determined to continue on the right path.

Also, I would be glad to join you all in the next Skype conversation. I feel like I have a couple of thousand forgotten words to recall before then...
