In September’s release of the Finnish local newspaper "Pielavesi - Keitele" the article of Sinikka Heikkilä, our student who studied on the Russian language program at the Summer University of NEOU PetrSU, was published. In the article devoted to the summer time of her studies in Petrozavodsk Sinikka tells what the studying at the University was like.
According to Sinikka’s words the most important was the atmosphere at the University. It was really friendly and everybody was ready to help. She was pleased with the communication with other students and they became real friends for the short period of time. She was pleased also with the teachers of Russian who could easily explain all the peculiarities of the Russian grammar system. And she was impressed by the Karelian history and traditions about which she found out more from different excursions.
Sinikka considers learning Russian to be very important to the Finnish people and recommends learning it on the Russian language courses at NEOU PetrSU.
