Summer in Petrozavodsk: what activities do students enjoy?
Unbelievably hot weather in Nothern Russia let us get into some amazing activities like sports, dancing and open-air shows
Welcome to Enjoy Russian. The idea of this post is very simple – show you the way we live and educate ourselves in Petrozavodsk (is the capital city of Karelian Republic by the way, if someone still has no clue). Enjoy Russian school is situated in the very city center, that’s why students may enjoy plenty of activities right after the classes, What do they do? Let’s take a look.
Banya was the culturally brilliant discovery
Picnics by the lake Onego, what can be better?
White nights is the time you can stay up all night because it is so bright and warm outside! So we did. We just grabbed the blankets, favorite food like sandwiches with Russian cheese and organic vegs, were laughing and talking and taking the endless amount of pictures.
Games and games and games … the funniest way to practice Russian
Guys went to the Game club – an event organized by the school. Professional Russian tutor gave some tasks to the guys, for example they had to pronounce Russian sayings (very difficult ones!) as fast as they could. They’ve done great! Then students also went to play board games with Russian volunteers. A lot of fun as well!
Keep calm and sing it out loud! Russian songs at the karaoke club
Have you ever tried singing in Russian? People at the restaurant YELI-PYELI (transl. “were eating and singing) were amazed by Enjoy Russian students’ singing skills.
To sum up, YOU should definitely try this! If you feel like learning Russian in the place where everyone cares about you (teachers, volunteers, host family) come to Petrozavodsk. You may choose group course that starts on 3d of September, not so much time left to register!
