I am particularly pleased to see a Russian student from Fitzwilliam on the team, although Howe who studies Japanese is also a man of taste with his subject of study as well as his articles of tricotage. Subarashii desu ne!

And finally they meet their match against Merton:
But an excellent battle and an excellent run, well done!

An explanation of the varying degrees of formality and how to address someone in Russia, the idea of “vy” and “ty”, when to use name and patronymic, when to use diminuatives. Explanation of how the periphrastic “do” is not present in Russian, and that the present tense contains I do, I do do, and I am doing. Owing to the size, the lesson is split into two parts.
