Recollection by Ian Young

Dear Iain.   Thank you for your most unexpected email. I was amazed, delighted and flattered.  It was like being drawn back into the "pioneering" days of Russian teaching and O levels.   It is so satisfying and gives so much pleasure to find that something you have worked at has been worthwhile.
I am delighted to hear that you have made another trip to Saint Petersburg and that you have a future outing to Moscow in your plans.  This is, if you can excuse a dreadful cliche, what makes it all worthwhile (teaching, that is).
I am still turning over in my mind your description of my pronunciation of Russian : proclamatory, theatrical, booming.  That all seems to suit well enough and is part of the noisy, loud persona of a Russian teacher. The only one that puzzles me is 'slightly demotic'.   At least it does not seem to have done any harm.  Carry on speaking, with or without grammar.
It was good to hear from you.   Bill Nesbitt, 27 September 2015.
Mr Nesbitt, Russian
