This is a huge deal for anyone, especially those just starting out. And look at me! I've gotten a review published in the newsletter of the ATA's Slavic Languages Division. Woohoo!! See page 26: http://www.ata-divisions.org/SLD/slavfile/SlavFile_vol.21.no.1.Winter.pdf
But wait, you say. Aren't you a French speaker? Do you know anything about Russian?
Well, I've sung in Russian before, but I don't think that counts. But...I'm a singer. I'm interested in music, and the translation thereof. Just read the fracking review, you'll understand.
Now, please excuse me while I jump around and squeal in sheer delight.
