    As a russian guy I must warn you that he's joking.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Hello, Mango7.

    He speaks with a strong Russian accent, but I understand what he says.
    I think I can communicate with him in English.
    (I'm not a native speaker of English.)

    Remember to capitalise "Russian", Boris. The OP is joking about what?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I think Boris meant the guy on the Youtube video by "he".

    Yep, I meant Mr. Funny Accent.

    Unfortunately, my classmates speak in the same way, but they don't pretend.
