I would like to thank my ex-colleague Olga Sergeeva for her expert advice and encouragement throughout this challenging idea to start posting in my own blog. Your support in this project is extraordinary. This blog would have been impossible without you, who inspired me during our conversations and discussions.
Also I would like to thank my numerous teachers of English: Liubov Kuchkina, Evgeniy Shtin, Svetlana Kononenko, Klara Drozdova (r.i.p.), Olga Kalestrova and Evgeniya Barysheva. I offer my sincere appreciation for learning opportunities provided by you.
