Students about their experience in Summer school 2010:
Jacopo Nardiello, Italy
I have been learning Russian for 1 month now. I started from the very beginning - I studied for 1 week before I came here. About my Russian teacher - she is nice, she is great really. She understood properly the level. IT is just me and a French guy. She is driving us in a Russian language properly. It is difficult, but it works. The arrangement, the organization is great. I would say problems always happen. But you should consider how the university helps facing them. And I can say that here everybody helped me a lot in all the small steps.
Petr Lhotka, the Czech Republic
I'd been learning Russian for 4 year at school before I came here. And now I realized that it is much better to learn language here in Russia than in the Czech Republic. It is much easier to learn Russian in Russia. In the Czech Republic it is 45 minutes of a lesson. And here you can practice what you have just learned in your class. Russian language all day long.
