Die Russische Sprachschule war während meiner Zeit in Krasnojarsk ein sehr wichtiger und angenehmer Platz für mich. Erstens konnte ich dort, durch einen qualifizierten Sprachkurs mein Russisch verbessern. Außerdem habe ich tolle Menschen nicht nur aus Krasnojarsk, sondern auch aus anderen Ländern kennengelernt. Sie wurden zu meinen Freunden. Ich bin zum Unterricht immer gerne gekommen, denn die Themen, über die gesprochen wurden, waren aktuell und interessant und das Lernen in den kleinen Gruppen hat Spaß gemacht.
