I've just looked it up and I found that is huuuuuuge. Honestly I always thought that Siberia were to a large extent 'only' the easter part of Russia country whereas it's geographic border apparently starts close to the Ural mountains and finishes to the Pacific Ocean... Ummmmbelievable.I also thought that Novosibirsk were in the North East Russia. To be precise, I thought it were in Yakutia somewhere ... but I was again completely wrong! I clearly must study geography more!Bye the way, is there any CAE student around ???Byee Mon 28 Feb 2011 12:18:36 GMT+1 Sphanh http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2011/02/novosibirsk.shtml?page=55#comment10 Hi olga, can you put some information about Saint Petersburg please?

It’s very good to know a few more about Russia, Novosibirsk specially. Well, I’d like to talk about my city too. I live in a little and pacific city from interior of state Ceará, called Russas. With a population approximately 70.000 people, the city developed around the river called Jaguaribe, along of the years. The climate here ever gyrate around +30 degrees for almost all year, at the moment here, we are on period winter time that must to go until June more or less. Big part of the people here works with agriculture and another part with commerce, and the population is much religious and has much faith in God, and they’re very hospitable too.Hugs and happiness!Adielson Sat 26 Feb 2011 00:31:13 GMT+1 MIchael http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2011/02/novosibirsk.shtml?page=38#comment7 Hello Olga:Very nice to read your post again. It is very particular description for the city of Novosibirsk.We can learn the history, population, transportation, and other stuff from your post.Russia is really quite mysterious country for me. Everything I've known maybe it is the largest country.That is just a joke. Actually, I know a lot concerning Russia, it is a very ancient country. Several centuries ago, many Russian lived in heavily forested area against the incursion of nomadic tribes.However, It had been formed a superpower country named Soviet Union. During the period of World war Ⅱ.It played a very important role in this war, which was known as the Great Patriotic War. Finall they defeat Nazi Germany.Russia has very glory scientific and artistic achievement. It launched the world’s first artificial satellite in 1950’s. One of the most greatest composers Tchaikovsky was famous all over the world.Modern times, the most famous person in Russia must be the ex-president Vladimir Putin , who is acting the Prime Minister at the moment. I know that he had worked in KGB, the security force of former Soviet Unite. As president he gained a reputation as a clever and ruthless political operator.The martial art of judo is Putin’s favorite sports, and he is the first leader to move forward into the advanced levels. I really admire him very much.Hope can have a chance to visit Russia, but not in winter. I am quite fear the winter in Russia.

But these words are similar to an ancient Indian language Sanskrit.For example - Maat writes as Mata(mother), Braat as Bhrata(Brother).What are you feel? One of my closed friend loves to read Russian fictions but always mistaking pronunciation of the name of Actors or places(written in Russian). Thanks for nice information about Novosibirsk.I like it.I am looking more surprised about your native land.

I am new here. I´m from San Sebastian, a small city situaten in the north of Spain.Maria Thu 24 Feb 2011 08:59:48 GMT+1 marco http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2011/02/novosibirsk.shtml?page=5#comment1 Siberia continue to reveal some new aspects and the great numbers referred to people and spaces gave me a little confusion thinking at the small city in Italy where I live. Thinking also to the Trans Siberian railway I remeber, if I'm not wrong, that it arrives at Vladivostock: the complete trip should be an experience of life.Marco Thu 24 Feb 2011 08:51:10 GMT+1 yasmine16 http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2011/02/novosibirsk.shtml?page=0#comment0 Hello Olga, Thak you for this useful information.
