Other remarks:

On finishing the lesson, which needed at that time to be divided into two as otherwise the subtitles got compressed and he technology wasn’t available to me yet to sort that out, we then have a joke as usual and a particular favorite song.

The text for those who are interested, is as follows:

“Зажглась заря вечерняя
Над речкой голубой,
Прохладен вечер северный,
А мне тепло с гобой-

Припев: Веселая и грустная,
Всегда ты хороша,
Как наша песня русская
Как русская душа!

С тобою годы долгие
Без горя проживешь,
С тобою, синеокая,
Нигде не пропадешь.

Припев:

Погоним скоро улицей
Мы свадебных коней.
Ты станешь в жизни спутницей
И песнею моей.

Припев:

Зажглась заря вечерняя
Над речкой голубой,
Прохладен вечер северный,
А мне тепло с тобой.

Припев: Веселая и грустная,
Всегда ты хороша,
Как наша песня русская,
Как русская душа.”
This is “You are always beautiful” and the original is sung by the legend Evgeniy Belyaev of the Red Army Choir, look out for his work on YouTube.
