I'm having trouble with the word мероприятие in Russian.
In my bilingual dictionary (Russian-Dutch), it says it's a kind of organized activity like you do when on school trips, but that certainly doesn't seem to be a 100% match, if it's correct at all.
I've looked it up in several monolingual dictionaries, but all I get is this incredibly vague definition that reads like it could refer to just about any "action," but looking at example sentences, I don't think that can be right. And I can't seem to gather a rudimentary understanding of the word just reading through example sentences, either.
I'm really stumped. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
