    Alexander Romanov
    Giga Chikadze
    Guram Kutateladze (the guy who admitted that should've lost to Gamrot)

    In most schools there they teach English starting with the 3rd grade, so it should be expected.

    They always did TBH (I started studying at school there), the question is - how they teach it :)
    My shitty English is a perfect example

    Romanov said that he speaks Russian, German, English, Moldovan and Turkish. Kutateladze if I'm not mistaken, said that he speaks 5 or 6 languages.

    Which translates to learning new languages faster and easier.

    Your English is good. At least for Sherdog standards.

    Valid point. Most do admit they learned mainly from watching movies and browsing internet, not from academic methods.

    It takes you less than 1 year (at least for me) to learn a new language and the more you learn, the easier some languages become.

    English subtitles to English speaking movies is indeed a great tool - both for written and spoken English

    And Brazilians still don't. Seem to confirm what Chael said about them having computers.

    Funny thing is, Thiago Santos dates Yana Kunitskaya and STILL doesn't speak English.

    Well, good thing that everyone knows the word "sex"

    It is more or less common that most of Russians and post soviet can speak Russian, atleast in Baltic countries such as Latvia and Lithuania

    The Russian language have lost their value during the last decade unless you want to make a career in Moscow in some specific industries
