Sexy in Russian: 49 Romantic Russian Phrases

  • May 24, 2017

So you are on your journey of learning Russian, it's an exciting adventure, but it does get hard at times.  

One danger in language learning is to get so focused on grammar and vocabulary that you forget to simply practice and enjoy the language. 

One of the most exciting (though slightly unorthodox) ways of learning Russian is to date a native Russian speaker! 

I, being a native Russian, started dating a Latvian girl over two years ago, she couldn't speak Russian at all. I knew Latvian on a very basic level, there was a definite language barrier between us. I started learning Latvian and she started learning Russian and we both helped each other out along the way.

Now , two years later I became fluent in Latvian and she became fluent in Russian. We both benefited from the process and it was a lot of fun!

So let us at LiveFluent help you go on your first date with a native Russian with these Russian Romantic Phrases!

(I wish I read a guide like this before meeting that girl, at the time talking with my limited knowledge of Latvian was awkward to say the least)
