“For Your Russian Kid” blog is created to accompany my main website, named likewise. I came up with FYRK because I myself am Russian and have a little kid who I want to teach Russian language. However, when I started looking for resources that would be readily available for download or purchase in the US I was faced with a big problem: there was virtually nothing manufactured in the US to help me teach my little one. Whatever was available cost a pretty penny or had to be shipped from Russia, also for a ridiculous price. Not to mention that quite frequently packages from Russian don’t make it to the Northern America.
And so I established FYRK to create and share everything fun and useful that I find that would help teach the kids and motivate the parents in this uneasy journey of bilingualism!
