    Tell me, is желание (as a Noun) an Unchangeable? I am about to watch/take notes with both part 1 and 2 of these videos but I'm asking a head of time just in case it isn't on this list...And if I want to base a sentence around an unchangeable noun, does the sentence stay as a Nominative case, or should I move onto the adjectives and conjugate the sentence from there and keep the noun the same? Спасибо, in advance!

    Out of interest the British spelling is whisky and is the anglicised version of the Gallic word uisgeah meaning water of life.

    Some people think Bistro comes from быстро. In 1870 Russian soldiers occupying Paris weren't allowed to drink so they would enter these establishments asking for a quick drink yelling "быстро, быстро".

    There many thousands of french words in english. The British upper class spoke French for several centuries because they won a war and took over the country and french words mixed in with english. I have noticed this while learning Russian. I recall reading that the Russian upper classes also spoke french for awhile. It makes learning Russian a little easier. P.S. - Мне нравится есть брокколи. I wonder of the dossier was on an (cough, cough) prominent American politician??? Kiwi is also a bird found in New Zealand. Australian's often call New Zealanders Kiwis as an "affectionate" nick name.

      Привет Френсис! Yes, this is true, upper classes in Russian also speak French for a long time, that's why there are so many French words in Russian :)
      Who knows...(about politician :))
      Btw I know about this bird, when I was a child my brother taught me some geography and presented the unique animals that live onlyin some certain continents, and kiwi was one of them :)
