Learn Russian with RussianPod101.com! You are in Russia for the very first time on a business trip and need to get to the office. Your business partner has already headed out to get coffee before going in to work and said he would meet you there. After he left, you realize that you really don’t know your way around Russia well enough to get to the office on time. Now you have to figure, out on your own, how to get there in a timely manner. You knock on your neighbor’s door in the Russian apartment you have rented. When someone answers the door, you reply in Russian, “Excuse me, I am going to work, but don’t know how to get there. Would you be able to give me directions to my new office?” The man is kind enough to help and asks you in Russian, “Where do you work, and what type of transportation are you going to take?” You know in Russia, the traffic is different, so you have no idea. You tell your Russian neighbor what office building you work in and then inquire in Russian, “What is the best transportation, and the fastest, to get me to work on time? Your neighbor replies in Russian, “I would go by train both ways.” He tells you how to get to the train and what stop to get off at. Incredibly grateful for your Russian neighbor’s help, you rush out the door and make it to work in plenty of time…in fact, your coffee wasn’t even cold.
