Alexandro, Bolivia

My name is Alexandro, I am from Bolivia, I am 19. I study Ballistics and Aerohydrodynamics at NSTU NETI. I came to Russia because I think that it is a very competitive country offering good education and plenty of opportunities.

And I chose Novosibirsk because I think that, though located in Siberia, it is a city with a rich history, and local people are friendly to foreigners. That’s exactly why I chose this place and this university. There are a lot of areas for professional development here. I’d recommend studying at NSTU NETI.

Tip for learning Russian

Russian is not easy to learn due to its grammar or pronunciation that can be particularly difficult for beginners. To overcome these difficulties, learners are recommended to listen, speak and practice the language with their friends from Russia a lot. Learners can use Internet resources such as language apps, online dictionaries, etc., which can be of particular help in learning Russian grammar. The main thing is to stay patient and persistent.
