My Russian hosts cooked a bear for me!

Enjoy Russian students have presented their projects. We were so surprised!
Many things change at Enjoy Russian, but one rule remains untouched – students’ final projects in Russian! Yesterday we had a farewell tea with Eleanor from Luxembourg, Lydia from Spain and Emma from Great Britain. We were so impressed with their creativity and great results! Let’s see what was presented.
Petrozavodsk from A to Z by Elanor
Ellie (as we call her here in Russia) took a long-term Russian course (12 weeks) and gained B1+ level. Her project was devoted to the Russian alphabet and the things she associated Russia with. For example, for У she wrote УКРОП since Russians add fennel into almost every meal! For Ч she drew a teapot and with a note ЧАЕПИТИЕ, because we do drink tea all the time. Her favorite letter was М. When she had her first dinner with Russian hosts they cooked meatballs out of a bear! “Мне понравилось, было вкусно! А еще в Инстаграме есть такие люди, у которых живет медведь Стёпа. Я бы очень хотела его погладить!” she says. Thank you, Ellie! Your book will be carefully kept by Enjoy Russian and will definitely inspire other students!
Which Russian city has airport and Kremlin? Lydia knows!
Can you imagine, Lydia created her own game in Russian! Each card contained one question about places in Russia and other students had to guess. Actually, it was not that easy, but guys did well. Teacher Alina: “Lydia is a very diligent student. she always translated everything accurately and asked questions. Very hard working!” It was Lydia’s 2d time at Enjoy Russian: she came to Petrozavodsk in 2016 and this time took a 12-week course. “Now I can understand Russian, explain many things in Russian and it’s just the beginning!” she says.
Tea-consumers number 1 in the world: British or Russians?
Emma from Great Britain prepared a quizz. Some questions were difficult even for Russian people! It was basically the comparison “Russia or Great Britain” and we knew many interesting facts out of it. Questions about history, lifestyle in both countries and even some idiomatic expressions made us THINK HARD:)
