Summer Russian language programme 2014

There is Always Something to Learn from the Russians
Kaaren ErholaThe border position of Karelia and the opportunity to completely plunge into the verbal environment were the reasons for Kaaren Erhola to come to Petrozavodsk and become a student of the Faculty of Political and Social Sciences of PetrSU for 4 months. In Finland Kaaren studies at the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Turku. “I’ve been studying the Russian language for several years already but my pronunciation is not that good because of the lack of oral practice. So I realized I needed to spend more time in Russia to speak Russian better” – told Kaaren.
