Usefull Details about Russian Language Courses

The Russian language summer school is supervised by Natalia Tishchenko, a PhD. We asked the associate professor to tell us about the study process and share a few photos. She explained why Saint Petersburg is suitable for studying Russian and what opportunities it offers to students.

Nataliya Tishchenko, PhD in Pedagogics, Associate Professor of the Department of the Russian Language SPbGASU
«The most interesting thing about teaching is that unexpected topics appear in each lesson. As we study grammar, we discuss a variety of aspects that are often defined by students themselves. Students want to discuss relationships, cooking, architecture, music, pets – and, of course, the weather.
The weather deserves special mention. Our city is located on the coast of the sea; numerous rivers and channels divide it into islands. The air is light and fresh, but rain is an essential part of life.
When going outside locals take an umbrella, glasses and warm clothes, just in case. When preparing students for an excursion, teachers give not only new words, but also useful tips that allow you to travel comfortably.

During the course we travel almost every day, exploring the avenues and embankments of Saint Petersburg, visiting museums and palaces. And, of course, going to the suburbs that Saint Petersburg is so famous for! After that we get acquainted with the cuisine of different countries (in 2019, the city became the culinary capital of Russia)!

You asked me to show you a photo, and I brought pictures from our fall and winter courses.

I think Saint Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, where it is interesting, exciting and safe to live. You should experience our amazing summer yourself. Our magnificent city and wonderful university are waiting for you!»
