International Children's Day

Hi everybody! Today is a very special day here because it's International Children's Day. Wikipedia says that June 1st is mainly celebrated as Chidren's Day in the former communist countries, whereas other countries prefer other days.

What do we do on this day? The answer is simple - we honor children. There are all kinds of open-air celebrations everywhere with concerts, competitions and fairs with children's art for sale. So I'm going to give you a glimpse into one of them.

We went to a city park today and saw a concert with children's songs and dances.

 



Oftentimes, children in the audience were invited to sing or dance, too. My daughter didn't need the invitation. She danced for 1.5 hours nonstop ;-)

After my daughter got tired of jumping and dancing around, we bought some ice-cream and took a walk in the park along the tables with the children's art. Here's the picture that she liked best. Of course, she talked her mom into buying it. :)


Now we are home. She's watching another children's concert on TV and I'm catching up on some work writing this blog post.

Happy International Children's Day!

10 interesting facts about the Russian language

In my previous post I promised to follow with the  interesting info about some other languages. So here are 10 facts about the Russian language which might be of interest to those who are studying it. If you would like to have this list in Russian, please contact me and I will send it to you by email. So, what do I find interesting about my native language?

1. Russian has about 500,000 words, but only 2,000-2,500 of them are used frequently. 100 most frequently used words make 20% of all written and oral speech. A high school graduate's vocabulary usually has 1,500 to 4,000 words. Those who have graduated from a higher educational institution normally have a richer vocabulary consisting of approximately 8,000 words.
2. It's compulsory for all astronauts in the international space station to learn Russian, so we can call it an international language of space :)
