Last year I studied a month at My Russian School in Siberia. This was an unforgettable experience and I it was a great way to start learning Russian. I lived at host family. This was a very good way to get to know more about the Russian lifestyle. Marina and her son Stas spoke really well English. This was very helpful as I hardly spoke any Russian when I arrived. They really made me feel at home, they were simply amazing. They also knew some people in Krasnoyarsk who spoke English and wanted to meet to show me the city and nature, this was very nice because it's hard to find English speaking people in Krasnoyarsk. They were also always willing to help me with my homework. In case you speak already some Russian (a2 or higher) it will probably also help to improve your Russian a lot, my level wasn't high enough to speak all the time Russian with them. The classes were also amazing. Tanya is a really great teacher, she made the classes really fun and we laughed a lot. And most importantly we practised to speak a lot. When I arrived I knew only a few words and the alphabet, but after a month I was already able to have some conversations with russian people. I really recommend you to take already a beginner course in your own country so you will make much more progress. Krasnoyarsk is a very great and interesting city. And the good thing is that almost no one speaks English so very soon you will be able to speak Russian In the supermarket, restaurant, when buying tickets and so on. I would highly recommend everyone who is interested in Russian language and culture to study at My Russian School In Siberia.

Afgelopen zomer heb ik een maand Russische geleerd in My Russian School in Siberia. Dit was een onvergetelijke ervaring en een geweldige manier om Russisch te leren. Ik woonde bij een gastgezin. Dit was een zeer goede manier om meer te weten te komen over de Russische levensstijl. Marina en haar zoon Stas spraken uitstekend Engels. Dit was zeer nuttig omdat ik nauwelijks Russisch sprak toen ik aankwam. Ze zorgde ervoor dat ik me al snel thuis voelde in Krasnojarsk. Ze kenden ook enkele mensen in Krasnojarsk die Engels spraken en mij wilden ontmoeten om mij de stad en de natuur te laten zien, dit was erg handig omdat het moeilijk is om Engels sprekende mensen te vinden in Krasnojarsk. Ze waren ook altijd bereid me te helpen met mijn huiswerk. Als je al wat Russisch spreekt (a2 of hoger) zal het waarschijnlijk ook helpen om je Russisch veel te verbeteren, mijn niveau was nog niet hoog genoeg om de hele tijd Russisch met het gastgezin te spreken. De lessen waren geweldig! Tanja is echt een zeer bekwame lerares en de lessen waren erg leuk. We hebben veel gelachen tijdens de lessen. Bovendien hebben we het veel geoefend om Russisch te praten. Toen ik aankwam, kende ik slechts een paar woorden en het alfabet, maar na een maand kon ik al simpele gesprekken met Russen voeren. Ik raad iedereen aan om alvast een beginnerscursus in Nederland te volgen, zodat je veel meer vooruitgang kunt boeken. Krasnoyarsk is een grote en zeer interessante stad. En het goede is dat bijna niemand Engels spreekt, daardoor leer je snel om Russisch te spreken in de supermarkt, restaurants, bij het kopen van tickets etc.. Ik beveel iedereen die geïnteresseerd is in de Russische taal en cultuur ten zeerste aan om te studeren aan My Russian School in Siberia.
