Lee came to Russia from the USA. Some time ago he wanted to set up a business in Russia but because of the financial crisis he decided not to take risks and try another adventure – learning the Russian language. So, seven years ago Lee came to the Institute of International Programs of Petrozavodsk State University.
Lee is sure that learning languages at his age is very helpful for brains. Besides, he thinks Russian is a very interesting language to learn. Moreover, every day Lee learns something new about Russia and the Russian people and that helps him to break stereotypes, as his childhood and youth in the USA fell at the time of the Cold War. He says that at those times he could not even imagine himself living in Russia.
Lee has spent 7 years in Petrozavodsk and when he leaves he will always remember the town and people who live here.
