I was just wondering... are there any natives of Russia and/or people who speak Russian (beginner-fluent, it doesn't matter)? I've been considering learning the language since 8th grade... it's now nearing the end of tenth. So I've finally decided to try it out. My parents won't let me work during the school year (egh), so I'm earning money through chores to get a program to teach me Russian and an English/Russian dictionary. I'm not asking for lessons or anything, I was simply wondering if anyone out there spoke the language. Thanks!
