Russian

This morning, I started out with the New Penguin Russian Course. I worked through some exercises in chapter 12 dealing with verb aspect, and did a short word list with the verbs presented.

In the afternoon, I finished copying lesson 52 of Russian without Toil. I started a list of the new words in the lesson that I need to learn; I still like pulling the words out into a list, so I can look them up and verify they mean exactly what the translation says they do. I also want to know both the imperfective / perfective forms of verbs, and Assimil doesn’t always provide that for all of the verbs.

Finally, I read a few pages from Terence Wade’s Comprehensive Russian Grammar about verb conjugation.
