Dilfuza Kamalova, Turkmenistan. Graduate of the Faculty of Mathematics and Information Technology

I am very lucky to have chosen NCSPU. Five years ago, I entered it with ease. My brother used to study here at the Faculty of Physical Training and Sports. He also got his bachelor's degree in 2019 and currently has a great job in his degree field at his home country. It was he who advised me to enter NCSPU.

I am a foreign national. Despite this, the management, teachers, the international department and the entire staff of the university treated me with respect and understanding during my whole stay in Russia. On behalf of all the Turkmen students I would like to express my special gratitude to the teachers for giving us all the necessary knowledge for us to become real professionals.

I am sure that the skills I have got at the university will help me succeed in the future. I have already decided to continue my studies at the magistracy and then go back to Turkmenistan and find a job according to my degree.

I would like to wish the NCSPU applicants to easily overcome any obstacle on their way to the goal. May your student life be interesting and full of events. Just know that NCSPU is a big family where anyone feels comfortable to study. I wish you new skills, success, kindness and happiness!

Lisa Maltin, France. Student of the University of Reims

My friends and I had a teaching internship at NCSPU. On arrival we were greeted by the international relations specialists. On the same day we met the NCSPU students who accompanied us during grocery shopping and then invited us to a cafe. We were accommodated at the rooms for international students at the dormitory. Russians are so hospitable!

Russia is so vast that everything seems much bigger than in France. We were shocked at the amount of snow but didn't feel that cold except for a few days when it was below -30 C. We have tasted a lot of Tatar delicacies. For example, belesh — a turnover pie with beef, potato and onion filling. And the most famous dessert in Tatar cuisine is chak-chak, an Oriental pastry made from dough and honey.

The NCSPU students have helped us to learn the Russian language. We have learned some greeting expressions such as "spasibo", "pozhaluysta", we know the names of colors, are able to describe weather and clothes in a few words. The most difficult for us in the Russian language is the alphabet, it differs from the Latin characters. Russia uses Cyrillic, so we struggle with the pronunciation. But despite all these difficulties, we had a great time trying to speak Russian.

This trip was the most useful experience in my life. I hope to come back here soon to get to know more and to see the people we used to be with again.
