Elena Ivanova bio photo

I’m Elena, a Russian tutor & English translator, and I’ve been living in the United Kingdom since 2007, when I moved to sunny Essex :) from Russia.

My interests are (but not limited to :): linguistics, British culture, world history.

Currently I enjoy learning Italian and French as a hobby.

What are these pages about?

I’d like to share my cultural experiences in the new country with my family, my current and future friends. The site has been not moderated. So all comments are welcome. Except with “F” words, please!

Дорогие друзья! Спасибо что зашли “на огонек”! Оставляйте свои (вежливые, желательно) комментарии. Я принципиально против цензуры. Давайте наслаждаться свободой слова! Всем удачи! Спасибо!
