Yeah, but we live in Kiev. Her Aikido class is conducted in Ukrainian, which she learns in school (typical school language instruction). She can follow the directions -- and has picked up a few more words -- but she can't really do more than hand gestures with the kids there.
And, no, the museums are not nearly so developed as to actually offer classes. Some day.
She had one experience with some English-speaking girls (dd goes to the French school). Dd was having fun with one girl, until this girl's friend shows up. This friend looks at my dd and says, "You look like a boy." And the girl she had been playing with said, as if surprised at her own ignorance, "Oh, yeah, you really do!" And off they walked. Sigh.
Anyway, we're moving this summer, so hopefully that will help.
