I don't want to sound like an arsehole, but I'm honestly surprised his English was the level it was, if he'd been learning as long as he'd said. He seemed to not get relatively basic grammar things.

To be fair, English grammar is immensely hard to grasp at times. How long had he been learning for?

Not familiar with the Russian language then? :D

Also, as far as i'm aware, only a relatively small percentage of the Russian population speak English 'fluently', esp compared to Northern Europe, and the English language programs in schools are more of a recent thing apparently.

He lived in Russia, he had come to the UK once on holiday, so presumably had little chance to practice any skills. Also what exactly was his "learning"? He could have been been going to some rip off "Language School" or just using text books.

Arsehole.

He was still 20 times better than most Asians I've come across. Those rip-off language schools are huge business in Thailand and all over SE Asia too. Massive racket it is.

Not quite. But that's the transaction ultimately, if not directly.
