Russian Calendar

The Russian words vchera (yesterday) and zavtra (tomorrow) are useful to point at a certain point in the past or future. Once you've practiced them well enough, the next step is to learn Russian months and Days of the week. Knowing how to say the Seasons in Russian is also helpful when talking about schedules and calendar activities.
