The possibility of combining studies with public work in the students' council of international students and also in the association of international students in Kazan allowed me to realize my ideas, I had leadership skills and useful experience like organizing various events, and also gave me faithful friends from different countries.

One would think that Kazan is a bustling million city, where all people have their troubles, but this thought is delusive. It's comfortable and cozy here, like at home.

Before I came to Kazan, I knew next to nothing about this city. I liked the architecture of the city. There are unusual buildings that have a unique and rich history. I have a collection of pictures of Kazan sights. Most of all, I like the streets of old Kazan –Kremlevskaya, Pushkina, and Staro-Tatarskaya Sloboda (Old Tatar Quarter). I like that the city combines modern and ancient buildings.

I was surprised by some open-hearted people in the streets. They can just come up and talk to you. I also like national Tatar cuisine, especially chak-chak, gubadiya, echpochmak.

I am studying Russian as a foreign language at the Institute of Philology and Intercultural Communication. I came to study in Russia because China and Russia always were good friends. Compared to Western countries, Russia offers more affordable tuition fees.

I like Kazan very much. It is the third largest Russian city famous for its beautiful landscapes, good environment, and universities.

I chose KFU because it's very famous. Many of my Chinese teachers recommended it to me. They were always telling me about KFU and its research areas.

I don't think that Russian is particularly difficult, but you really have to study it thoroughly.

In the future, I will come back to my country and take a state service exam, or stay in Russia, if I have such an opportunity.
