There is a story which happens with me on 24 June 2018:
"There is the World Cup in Russia, and Moscow one the hosts, and there a lot of foreign people on the Moscow streets. In one evening I walked in the centre of Moscow, and in one moment I hear that some woman call me, when I saw her, I saw that she was really tired and went to her to found out what she wants from me. She was not from Russia, she was from Indonesia, and she didn't know Russian, and we speak on English, and that moment I noticed that I learn English for more than one year, but I can't built sentences very well, I understand her very well, but I can't reply perfectly. And she explained that she tried to find a taxi on "Uber", but she can't understand where she is, and she can't explain to drivers where she is, because the drivers don't know English very well. And she asked me to explain them where we are. She said that she tried do it for four times but she all the time failed, and other people rejected to help her. I did it, i called to the driver, and we found him and she got a taxi. She thanked me and drove away. I hope that she is alright now."

I just noticed one thing, maybe it's obvious, but anyway.

If you learn a foreign language, one of the problems will be that you just won't see your mistakes, when you speak or write on a foreign language. When you speak on your own language, you will notice that somehow you pronounced a word in wrong way, or just built a sentence wrong. And you feel that, you hear that it's not right, it's wrong and you rapidly fix your mistake. And you can do it, when you don't know the grammar very well. I can say it about myself, yeah, I don't know the grammar of Russian language very well, but I can speak correctly on this language, and I can notice some mistakes which can make some people. Maybe you won't show a rule, but you're sure that you're right. Of course I make some mistakes, but other Russian understand me, and philologists don't want to kill me.

Sometimes when I speak with people who learn Russian as a second language, and I always hear that the grammar of Russian language is difficult. And you know what, you're absolutely right when you say that. I can say more; I think that the majority of Russian pupils don't know the grammar for 100% percent. And even when I studied at schools, the subject "Russian language" was a hard task for me and to other my friends.

Even when I wrote this text, I think that I made somewhere some mistakes, or just my style of writing is not appropriate to a true English. I just will check where I made mistakes on “Word” and then I’ll post it.

""War and Peace" has many lines. The main characters are Natasha Rostova, Pierre Bezukhov, Andrew Bolkonsky. But there are a lot of other characters which have an important role in the books. In the first volume describes how rich people live, there you'll see how foolish they are. When Pierre arrived from France to Moscow, nobody liked him, didn't invite him to parties, and people tried avoid him and laughed at him. But when his dad dies, he gets a huge bequest, and he is rich. And people changed their opinion on him, he rapidly become married for a beautiful woman. But Pierre is not like the other, he has a kind heart, he feels that his life is not right, and he suffers. And he tried to find a true life. It is only one of the lines, also there describes war, not only 1812, also describes how The Russian Empire fought in the recent battles. In this parts of the book you will meet Kutuzov, Napaleon and other famous people. Also you will see how people fought in the battles, and some comments of Leo Tolstoy about war, and how Russian people won the Borodin battle. And also I want to speak a little about Natasha Rostova, who has a pure soul. When Andrew Bolkonsky become a depressed man after battles, only the love for Natasha saves him, he sees how this girl is different from other girls, and he falls in love on her. It will took to much time to tell everything, I only can say that this book not only about war and love, but also about the meaning of life and other things."
