  1. This is really a nice lesson which I have nevEr seen! It is exactly what I have been looking for. Not only this lesson, but all the three lessons At the restaurant.

    • Everyday Russian says:

      Hello Samuele.

      We not always had and have the resources to provide the translations for all the lessons, but since you asked, we added the translation for this one and for the second lesson from the series (the first one is already translated).

      Thank you for your comment. Happy studying 🙂
