Rahel meets up with Russian mom 2 years later
It goes without saying that 3 months is more than enough to find yourself bonded with a Russian host family. Meet Rahel from Switzerland, Enjoy Russian School alumni of 2016. This wonderful girl had been learning Russian in Petrozavodsk for 12 weeks (check out Semester Abroad program here). To celebrate the reunion Rahel’s Russian mom Marina cooked her favorite Russian treats and took her to some beautiful places in Karelia. The most obvious difference between 2016 experience and May 2018 trip is that now Rahel speaks fluent Russian!
She calls me Russian mom!
“Рахель – очень искренний, светлый человек. Такая веселая и добрая девушка. Всегда хочет мне помогать, записывает мои рецепты. Она называет меня русской мамой и всегда зовет нас в гости” says Marina. Rahel had always been attracted by Russia, people and mindset. Moreover, nowadays learning Russian is extremely advantageous. Thanks to fluent Russian Rahel successfully entered the Police Academy (by the way only 17 people were selected out of 800!) and is going to work at the airport in Zurich.
