Johanna Kubassa, Austria (2017)
I had a good start with learning the Russian language. I especially liked that we always practice new vocabulary by speaking and using sentences including them. In Petrozavodsk I learnt Russian in joyful and funny way with very nice teachers. Volunteers were really helpful and friendly. I would like to participate again
Magdalena Offenbeck, Austria (2017)
Learn Russian language with Olga was great. She always answered all our questions and helped us with everything. And Petrozavodsk is the best place to study Russian in Russia as nobody speaks English and you have ti speak Russian, people are nice and you learn a lot in short time. When I came here I was an absoute beginner, but now I can speak a little.

My Russian course was excellent. My teacher Alina had many enjoyable and original games to make learning more fun and easy. She was approachable and happilly helped us with anything. My host family – Galina and Invan – did everything to make us feel comfortable and welcomed. They involved us in their daily lives, taking us on their meeting with friends so that I felt myself very included and welcomed.

My teacher Alina was very kind and making the learning process interactive and fun. We covered a lot of in two weeks but also in great depth. My host family – Galina and her son were both very kind and helpful and gave us a very warm welcome into their home. The most remarkable moments were visit to Botanical garden with my host family, orchestra concert with man Valaam monastry choir and City day of Petrozavodsk. Communication between myself and school was excellent as they answered any worries I had and helped me to feel secure in Petrozavodsk.

My language skills are so much better now. I didn’t know any every-day Russian when I got there, now I can hold a conversation, order food, and go to a store. My understanding of Russian sky-rocketed.
Nathalie Amacker – Switzerland – 2017
The teachers were speaking most of the time in Russian. They used different games, lead discussions and help us with projects and new words. For example, my teacher Katya explained me the defference in words: в горах, на горе, в горе. The family took time to speak with me and was very helpful. I felt like at home and very welcomed. I hope to keep in touch with them. The program was great, a lot of activities! I really enjoyed the Russian speaking club. No way to get bored. It was amazing to meet volunteers. It was a great place to study Russian! Great job! Thanks!

My teacher Natalie is open, explains in a good way so I can understand everything. Family’s apartment has got excellent conditions, clean and tidy. There is very good Russian food at home and family has been extremely friendly and open (Elena is fantastic). This is my third time in Russia at a host family – this is the best family by far. Excursions are big part of the program. Karelia is a fantastic place. An idea about volunteers is very good. I have only positive experiences from beginning to an end. I will recommend the school and might return.
Gerald Robach – Austria – 2017
I really enjoyed my stay in Petrozavodsk. There are so many opportunities. I liked my classes. It is better to Russian in Russia than in Austria. My family was very communicative and friendly. I really enjoyed breakfast and dinner. Food was very healthy and tasty so that I even could’not eat everything. Most of all, I enjoyed karelian street game Kyykkä and workshop how to cook karelian pies called kalitki.

I’ve spent here 3 months. Now I can understand and speak some Russian. We trained all the aspects of speech, reading, listening, writing, some videos were very funny. My host mama Elena was extremely nice, we went to the theatre and she explained to me everything that I didn’t understand. The excursions were interesting. I liked going out with the volunteers Anita and Julia, they are kind and friendly. The coordinators solve all such questions, the write back immediately, that’s really helpful.
