“All my life I enjoyed using and continue to use the Russian language, to use it to speak about different people, phenomena and events; compare and match it with other languages; to marvel at its flexibility, depth, expressiveness; to preserve ancient Slavic roots and at the same time vigorously master new concepts, to comprehend the problems of all mankind. My experience of living in multilingual Lithuania convinced me that bilingualism or the early development of two or more languages is an incredible boon to all who are fortunate to do so, like us here in Canada. It’s never too early to learn. And it’s never too late.”
