Dear Students,

the school is closed.

This message is to warn everyone who is affiliated with Lesia Lishchuk.

In October 2018 Lesia Lishshuk was fired as director of the language school. It was discovered that she was embezzling / stealing money from the company since it opened in 2016. A police report was created and she will be sued in court.

Lesia was supposed to help running the school according to Ukrainian law. The language school has a lot of students, but almost all payments that the school received from students were hidden by Lesia.

Nearly all the equipment she bought for the school, with company money or money invested by owner, she bought in her own name with delivery to school. The goal was obviously to steal as much equipment as possible if her scheme is discovered.

After Lesia was fired she convinced the landlord of the school office to change the rental contract in her name so that it is not possible to access the office anymore and the school had to pause operations.

The school might not be possible to be rescued but all legal options will be used to get her convicted for fraud and theft. If you are in business with her make sure you are not trusting her with money, get a receipt for all services and be always aware that you might be the next she is stealing from.

long russian words

Russian alphabet consists of 33 letters and if you recently decided to study Russian you have to be ready to read a lot of long words including a lot of consonants. When you open a book for beginners you may see many words with only one syllable (стол (table), стул (chair), пол (floor), кот (cat), зонт (umbrella)) and you will be happy of course. But everything is not so easy.

After some lessons about the basic Russian grammar you will start the topic “Traveling” and then you will be surprised. Surely if you have decided to learn Russian you like to travel a lot and you are looking forward to tell everything about your journeys in Russian. So prepare for a basic vocabulary for topic “Traveling”.

Достопримечательности  - a tourist attractions

Средиземноморье - Mediterranean

Международный - International

Путешествовать – to travel

Иностранный - foreigner
Развлекаться – to have fun

I hope you are still alive and would like to prepare yourself for more advanced Russian topics.

If your profession is not connected somehow to chemistry, congratulations - you are a lucky one!

The longest Russian word consists of 55 letters:

Тетрагидропиранилциклопентилтетрагидропиридопиридиновые (It is chemical substance)

In the Grammatical vocabulary of Russian (A. Zaliznak) you can find the longest adjective in Russian:

частнопредпринимательский  (private - adjective referring to business)

(25 letters)

The longest verbs are:

переосвидетельствоваться (to reauthenticate)

субстанционализироваться (to substantivize)

и интернационализироваться (to internationalize)

(All of them — 24 letters)

The longest nouns:

(19 letters)

The longest conjunction and preposition:

Now you see why everybody thinks that Russian is a very difficult language. Therefore I think nobody knows the longest Russian words.

If you read these words several time you will be able to impress your friends by your magical ability.
When you start to read them first time for them maybe some of them will fall asleep, maybe some will think that you have eaten too much borscht and drank a lot of vodka but rest of them will be your fan and look forward to hear more interesting about the Russian language.

Wishing you good luck and see you at LAE language school in Kiev!
