Lesson 16 has just been released!

http://www.russianlessons.net/lessons/lesson16_main.php

This lesson is all about verbs of motion. Many of you have probably seen the lesson in the grammar section. However this new lesson is different because it provides a huge amount of examples.

Please post corrections to the the corrections forum. General feedback is welcome below.

A few notes.

1. I think it's necessary to add the verb 'to walk' to the list of verbs of motion. I suppose it's more common than 'to stroll'.

2. Гонять/гнать can mean 'to drive' really, so that footnote is not complete. Гонять/гнать also means 'to drive very fast and agressive' (sometimes in the sports context). For example: Не гоните! (to the driver) = Don't drive too fast! It's close to the verb 'to run' in some contexts. The words 'гонщик' (racing driver) or 'обгон' (overtaking) have the same root. So they are related to motion too.
Also "гнать" means 'to lie' ('to say untruth'), but it's slang.
