Do You Speak Russian Well

— Лу, Ты хорошо
говоришь по-русски? — Нет, 
плохо, Иренa.

speak (in) Russian?" "No,
poorly, Irena."

"Copy-and-paste" the converted code from the web page above into your "Edit My Poem" page input-area, replacing the questionable text with the converted code. Once you click the "Update Poem" button on your "Edit My Poem" page, your edited poem should display properly on its designated poetrysoup.com web page. Thank you.
