Michal Šťastný, Czech Republic

I am a student at Palacký University Olomouc. During my study placement at KSU I studied Russian philology and tried to take part in various cultural and artistic university events, unfortunately, such events are very scarce at our university in Czech Republic.

I'd like to thank KSU teachers. They excel at their subjects and teach very well. They helped me improve my Russian.

I liked my study placement at KSU very much. I made lots of friends. I learnt a lot of new things about Russia and Kostroma, became more independent. I really hope that I'll come back to Kostroma again, as a tourist at least.

Gulnur Peyshembayeva, Turkmenistan

Since childhood I had been dreaming of studying in Russia, seeing real Russian wooden houses, enjoy real Russian winter, see sights in Russia, communicate with Russians.

I got a decent education at KSU. I am deeply grateful to KSU  teachers and staff members for this opportunity. My fellow students were kind, cheerful, active. I don't regret a single moment spent at KSU.

Now, thanks to my knowledge gained at KSU, I work as a Russian language interpreter in Turkey, accompany Russian-speaking tourists. Thank you, KSU! You'll always be in my heart!
