Students say learning Russian in Petrozavodsk is a great way to find a Russian family
What is the main difference between studying in Petrozavodsk and other cities? Each Enjoy Russian student knows – Russian homestay. It means that prior to your arrival in Russia the stuff of a school chooses the best family for you to live with depending on your interests, languages, personality (like pets or not, talkative or rather shy etc.) After the “perfect match” is found we get many positive and enthusiastic testimonials from the students.
In two weeks every day is remarkable, I really liked every moment spent with my hosts
Says Asilis from Luxemburg. He especially loved living with the Russian hosts: “Communication with my Russian hosts was perfect, they were very available, attentive, kind and welcoming, I will definitely keep in touch with them. The living conditions were perfect, I could use everything I needed and there was everything I needed. I felt very good in the family. My hosts immediately trusted me, the food provided was very good. We had many nice, funny and interesting moments together.
What do students do with the hosts? Usually it’s not just bare practice of Russian. They can take you to DATCHA (Russian summer house), make shashlyk’s, introduce you to their friends, go fishing or have a picnic by the lake. Some of our students go to the museums and restaurants with the hosts, explore the wilds of Karelia.
Sometimes they give you some important advice not only about how to survive in Russia but how to be always on the brightside. Here is the video of Maria and Andrea from Spain. They came to Petrozavodsk to learn Russian and here is the interview with their Russian mom Tatiana. What was the first impression when they saw each other and what are the differences between Russian and Spanish people?
