Reviews from our students

Hello, my name is Bashak Uzun. I came from Turkey, I really liked studying at the preparatory school, because I study many new subjects: the Russian literature, the history of Russia. I also met many new friends who became like my family. Therefore, I invite everyone to the city of Kazan to study here and make new friends.

Hello, my name is Li Danyang. Now I am a student at the preparatory school of Kazan Federal University. I study not only the Russian language, but also history, social sciences, and economics. These subjects help me not only speak Russian better, but also better understand culture. Of course, it is not enough to study Russian only in the classroom, you also need to listen and speak more Russian. Here I will study translating at the magistracy. If I achieve my goal, I will become competitive at the labor market, this is both a challenge and an opportunity.

My name is Nur Zad Ahmad, I am from Afghanistan. I have already graduated from a university in my homeland with a degree in Civil Engineering. I began to study Russian 8 months ago at the preparatory school and now I speak Russian quite well. In addition, I made many new friends. Here I can get good knowledge in my specialty. I chose the city of Kazan, because Kazan is one of the largest and most advanced cities in Russia, Kazan University is one of the 10 leading universities in Russia, and the teachers here are excellent specialists.

Hello, my name is Ren Ningbo, in September I came to Kazan from China. For me, studying at the preparatory school is very interesting and useful. At the first classes in the Russian language, I did not understand everything, it was especially difficult in the classes on the history of Russia, mathematics and social studies. Every day I tried to learn new words and new grammar. Time passed quickly, and I began to get acquainted with foreign and Russian students to communicate. In addition to classes, there is a lot of interesting things at the prep-school, for example, the «round table» events, when students from different groups sit down together and discuss current issues. I think this is a very good way to make new friends and learn to speak good Russian. I really thank my teacher and curator, as she helped me a lot.

Hello, my name is Sunbuli Khetam, I am from the Syrian Arab Republic. When I arrived in Russia, I was familiar with some Russian words. Here, teachers begin to teach students the Russian language from the letters. It was amazing to me that after a month and a half I was able to understand conversations in Russian and even participate in them. This is how we study at the prep-school: at the first semester we study Russian more, and at the second we begin to study our majors, we even have interesting work at the laboratory. In addition, the students’ concerts often take place, where all students can participate. Also there are a lot of sporting events in the sports capital of Russia: I, for example, participated in a health marathon.

Hello! My name is Gesh Miatelana, I came from Congo. When I arrived in Russia, I opened a new page in my life. Of course, it was difficult to adapt to weather conditions, and life here is more expensive than at home. The next problem is language. In the first semester, it was very difficult for me to answer even a simple question. But now everything is fine, I’m used to it, I really like the city of Kazan and Kazan University, here we have everything we need for study. There are great teachers who teach us well. At the end, I want to thank you all for what you are doing for us.
