It was strange for me to find myself in cold and snowy Russia after the warm climate of the Indian Ocean and its warm breezes. But I fell in love with this country with all my heart: the climate, the seasons, and the country with lots of cities, traditions, and, above all, hospitable, good-natured people.

Needless to say, it was difficult to memorize Russian verbs, the complex grammatical system of nouns, get accustomed to and understand fluent speech. To cope with the difficulties of the Russian language, I read a lot, listen to music by Russian composers, watch Russian movies.

I haven't decided yet whether I'll stay and work in Russia or not. I feel homesick. But with every passing day, I become more and more attached to my university, teachers, the most beautiful Russian city – Kazan. I am so happy to study at one of the top universities – KSUAE and live in the third capital of Russia.

I've been living and studying in Russia for two years already. I see no difficulty in studying Russian because I have great teachers. They play a key role in international students' life because they lay the groundwork for the perception of the Russian culture.

The Internet is of great help to me when I prepare for my classes. You can find various textbooks, study aids, tests on the Web. Actually, I enjoy studying the materials from different Russian sources.

The most difficult thing about learning Russian is the fear of making a mistake when communicating with Russians. If you overcome this fear, you will succeed.

I really like taking part in the university's social life. Sometimes I feel homesick. But I have great friends, fellow students, those who are always ready to help me.

I am very fond of Russian classical literature and often read poems by Alexander Pushkin and learn them by heart. Wherever I am, whatever the future holds for me, I will always love Russian culture and literature.
