    Thank you very much, Dr. Hanan!
    I’ve been waiting for something like that for some time, praise to the God that it happened – some awesome lessons that are up to date.
    I’m looking for some ways to make similar learning resources for Russian speaking people. I would be happy to translate some of your posts into Russian, giving links to author, of course.
    If you don’t mind, please let me know.
