The education systems in my country and Russia are worlds apart: teachers' knowledge and experience, their approach to teaching – literally everything. The quality of education in Russia is much better. Choosing a study destination, I was considering 5 universities in 5 cities of Russia, but it was SibFU that I chose. I attended Russian language courses for 6 months. Initially, Russian troubled me because its grammar is very difficult (Russian has as many as 6 cases!), but now I speak Russian well.

Is it difficult to conduct research in Russia? Definitely, it isn't. SibFU promotes research on dendrochronology, and it’s no surprise. Siberia is the best place for such research. I've built a successful career and become the Head of the Laboratory of Ecosystem Biogeochemistry of the SibFU School of Ecology and Geography.

I had a few countries to choose from: the USA, England, Germany, and Russia. A Russian language textbook came into my hands then. I fell in love with Russian at once and decided to come to Russia. Maybe it was my fate.

Why SibFU? An acquaintance of mine worked here as a Japanese language teacher. He told me that SibFU gives high-quality education and offers preparatory Russian language courses. That’s what I needed. I learnt Russian attending the courses, communicating with my roommates in the dorm and studying on my own. The hardest thing is correct pronunciation.
