Siberian Federal University

I want to stay in Russia and teach at the university

I have long relationship with Siberian Federal University; once I spent a semester here as an exchange student and realised this university was just what I needed. It runs a Spanish Language Centre which provides all kinds of help, from preparing documents to settling daily problems. I feel good here; the campus is my favourite place in Krasnoyarsk, I go to the swimming pool and take walks in the forest next to the University in my free time.

I’ve already been studying Russian for five years. At first, I had problems understanding many notions, especially those related to student life. For example, I could not grasp the meaning of “zachet,” (test) “zachetnaya knizhka” (academic record book) and “poluchit avtomat” (qualify for being exempt from test). I learn new words every day, write down the phrases I hear in the street and marvel at the many different ways you can express your ideas in Russian. I’m now completing my master studies and wish to stay in Russia, not in Moscow spoiled by tourists, but here in the calm Krasnoyarsk, and teach at SibFU.
