One more suggestion: While I cannot speak for all, I can assure you that there are at this online community many -- MANY -- native-Russian level speakers, including Russians, Ukrainians, Belorus, and other folk who grew up in the former CCCP who are unlikely too put forth much serious effort assisting a person who show in his/her avatar the image of a ruthless dictator, especially one whose tactics and decisions led to the deaths/imprisonment of multiple millions of persons, many of which were relatives of membership @ this site, from East Germany to The Sea of Japan. Just something to think about.

    re: "Большое спасибо))
    I've already changed it after interrogate by other USSR members. I don't want to hurt anyone feelings, I just put this picture as a Russian leader even I just only read him on the surface and I just like his moustache)).
    Hope you'll accept my apology and give me a chance to be a guest of your culture and country."

    Asher: First, I am not a native of Russia or, formerly, USSR; I am from the USA. But because I lived several years in former USSR, I am sensitive to the feelings and potential contempt that the image of Stalin might inspire. (BTW, when you write "other USSR members", you should remember to include the word "former", i.e., "former USSR members" as USSR broke up in 1991.)

    Anyway, your avatar change to a photo of yourself is a good decision, I think, and especially in an online community where people are seeking personal exchanges with persons unknown to them; hiding behind "cartoons", photos of lakes, buildings, flowers, and puppies", rather than show an honest depiction of one's self, likely advances a great deal more "trust" among persons in the community. Just my two kopecks.

    Good luck in establishing a language exchange with a qualified, native-level Russian speaker. There are many such among the membership @ PolyGlot Club, so use the "member search" tool to find a few, send a message to say hello and introduce yourself, and sit back and see what happens. It is that simple. -exRanger

Go to RF, spend a year or, better, two, @ that country. From an opportunities standpoint, the large metro areas, esp. Moskva and Leningrad, will serve you w/ perhaps a larger variety of options, some of which might allow you to "get by" on the strength of your English, which (by your self-rating of 4 stars) is, apparently, strong. The farther afield you stray from these two juggernauts, the greater the demand on "your Russian", and not having as much opportunity to "slide by" in English: Better for building and strengthening Russian, but possibly making survival @ the place more arduous, if not impossible. Your (native?) Urdu might prove to be an asset (or make you a target...) in, say, the former Soviet republics of Kazakhstan and/or Uzkekistan -- the farther south in either, the better, though beware in southern Uzbekistan the presence of many Pashto speakers, which socially and politically don't "jive" w/ Pakistanis, savvy?

Well, good luck to ya, maybe some of the native Russkies around PG can help ya out, but don't discount Ukrainians and/or Belorus, most of whom are also fluent Russian speakers and whom might be more kindly-inclined re: helping you out. -exRanger
