Claudia from Italy: I was not just a simple tourist in Russia
Claudia Ramonda had been learning Russian in Petrozavodsk for two weeks. Daily classes at “Enjoy Russian” language school, cozy evenings with a Russian host family, exciting cultural program have turned a course into a great adventure. With other students from Italy Claudia got a chance to challenge herself on the rope park hidden in between Karelian forests, went to open air museum Kizhi and learned how to cook traditional pies. As you can see here in the Russian North foreigners not only study Russian, they boost many other skills.
Truly happy to have been a part of Enjoy Russian summer
Two weeks ago I started my one-week course at Enjoy Russian Language School. Being hosted by a local family and walking around the city as not just a simple tourist has been an amazing experience. My host family in Petrozavodsk was really welcoming and patient and the lessons at Enjoy Russian Language School with Alina were funny, interesting and useful!
During my brief staying in Petrozavodsk I felt that my Russian level did improve. The cultural program was also beautiful. We went to Kizhi Island, with whom I feel in love at first sight, and we learnt how to cook typical Karelian kalitki. On Thursday we also went to the rope park “Sherwood”. Although I didn’t have the guts to prove myself on the obstacles, I really enjoyed the wild nature that surrounded the park. It’s an experience I strongly recommend and that I’d love to live again.
Loved my brief experience at Enjoy Russian! Truly happy to have been a part of that, otherwise it would have been one big regret!
