Why is Russian an important language to learn?

Have you ever thought that you might like to visit the largest country in the world?   Do you even know which country is the largest one?  Russia happens to be the largest country and it is filled with fortresses surrounded by ancient walls, national treasures, charming historical towns, large cities, and enough hospitality to greet you a trillion times over.  Oh, and you must not forget the artists and writers that have come from this country, Tolstoy and Pushkin come to mind right away.

There is so much to learn culturally in Russia and the easiest way to understand it is to speak the language.  At least two hundred and seventy thousand people speak Russian and while you will hear it everywhere in Russia, it will also be part of your days if you are visiting Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Belarus, and Kazakhstan.  If you are not much of a traveler, then you may want to learn this language for work, as there are plenty of business opportunities in Russia.  And it will look quite good on your resume too, especially since many others will not choose to learn it if given a choice among many other languages.
