3:46 am
shred ice cream is. very delicious and healthy for food what kind of ice cream did mention there were the food is this struck me immediately i remember that. right from the furnace 1st day there we arrived in the city i'll tell you one thing when my brother and i started studying in moscow that was a 1955 how we weren't hungry. we weren't starving. but we never turned down any thing that was offered to us to eat or drink and where i remember one thing we were living in the dormitory the foreign language institute they are not far from red square. and we could have forgone our meager stay penned which is kind of a scholarship that we cook we could buy black caviar. issues in
3:47 am
store for. a little bit. higher price than the other food products but that's where we 1st tasted black caviar never had the black caviar in canada paul never not even read. how would you like to have your name changed by someone in a split 2nd a new name not of your own choosing well that is exactly what happened to george and his brother. they had a russian identity that was in british rule of god in 1952 within. i think was in 2 weeks we had to report to the local police station new it's called the militia. in the soviet union that time to go to the passport department and asked for them to fill out on the basis of what kind of document you have so my brother and i got on board and treat card travel to you know they're part of

3:49 am
my brother another name that's it the fact that george was a native speaker of comedian english would be a priceless for a young man coming from the working class george's language skills would be the determining factor for the rest of his life when i came to the soviet union. i finally realized that my knowledge of english. my pronunciation of anguish knowledge of english grammar structure. and phonetics. was actually a boon and they borrowed some money from our neighbors to go to leningrad foreign language institute and we've got a reply from maryland grad here if you pass your exams you'll be given accommodations at the dharma tory local government and i was in laying grad of a place called institute of noble ladies which was
3:50 am
later called the here famous headquarters of the communist party when the revolution started but anyway with my brother and i went there replied we we finally managed to pass the entrance exams we were given. combinations in the dormitory we began studying everything seemed to be going to go good and then right after the new year we got called out to the principal really in in russia called the director directress lady together where they are from the titian actions you boys you 2 boys from canada will have to change your pronunciation of what because we here at our institute we teach king's english james came king james english. i said i can i'm going to pretend i don't understand will you please pour me
