So far it is the eighth summer students from the University of Birmingham (Great Britain) spend in Petrozavodsk University. Just as before, the youngsters came to study the Russian language, get to know the Russian and Karelian culture, and, of course, get a heap of new and, as we hope, pleasant impressions, as many of them visit Russia for the first time.
Apart from intensive studies, students will visit museums and cultural and recreational activities, join the celebration of 310-year anniversary of the city of Petrozavodsk, visit the Kizhi island, feast eyes on Karelian nature, strike up acquaintances and make new friends.
Presently the youngsters have just come to the city and are familiarizing themselves with the life of their host families and Petrozavodsk citizens. May the combination of studies and entertainment add a lot of impressions to their big student summer adventure!
