It's been my privilege to work at OSU as a visiting lecturer since 2003. Each June, I look forward to visiting the university not just for sharing my knowledge of American English, education system and culture, but also because I want to keep up my acquaintance with Russia. For me, it's important to be a kind of the USA ambassador and have a chance to tell Americans about "real Russia," when I come home. Each student and colleague that I've met in OSU is experienced, professional and ready for communication and learning. Orenburg has become my second home, I have a lot of friends and colleagues here. Together, we'll be able to build a bridge to mutual understanding that will help break any stereotypes existing in both countries today.

I studied at OSU as part of the Russian as a Foreign Language exchange program. Before I arrived in Russia, my Russian had been very poor. But the teachers were very amiable and helped me cope with this problem. I studied the language for half a year and at the end of my studies I passed my B1 exam. Also, I became more independent and self-confident. I’m really happy and can recommend this program to everyone who wants to master Russian. Besides, I visited German Language Center where I often attended lectures and even acted in a play in German.

I had been dreaming of studying abroad since childhood, and I'd like to thank OSU for making my dream come true. I have to say that it was hard for me to get accustomed to my new life. But OSU boasts excellent teachers, friendly and sympathetic staff of the Foreign Citizens Office, smart, talented and hardworking students. All of them helped me with advice, shared their textbooks and lecture notes. During my studies at OSU I familiarized myself with various cultures, languages and traditions. This changed my view of life. And I’m happy that I can take part in various cultural events, not just attend classes. Also, I visited the university forensics lab. The university provides plenty of opportunities for our life and studies! I'd like to say that I was right to choose OSU. I got knowledge and invaluable experience and made new friends.
