Nina and Anton here after a break of one week - my wife was in hospital and I was not available.
Nina pleased that she can understand parts of what I say.
Leaving she said: " Understanding comes first, pronunciation can come later. Grammar I can do at home. What is really good is that you speak to us in English."
What is amusing is to see Nina and myself adjusting our positions and moving them as far as we can in the direction of the other person's position.
