До Свидания Moscow!

Moscow

До Свидания Moscow!

I can’t believe how quickly my month in Moscow has gone! It seems like just yesterday that I nervously came to my first class! The time has flown by, but it was one of the funnest and busiest months of my life!

My time at Liden and Denz has been fantastic. I don’t have space to give all of the reasons I have loved my time in Moscow, but here are my top 3:

Language classes

When I told my friends I had signed up for a extra month of classes during my summer holidays, some were skeptical. However, my month here has been filled with fun, relaxed and interactive language learning. The teachers at Liden and Denz were excellent and my Russian has improved more than I thought possible!

Real World Practice

Being immersed in Russian language is an experience which cannot be replicated, and is such a boost to your language skills. My confidence to use Russian in everyday scenarios has grown so much while in Moscow. On the final day of my trip I found myself haggling at a souvenir market in Russian! I certainly would never have imagined being able to do that one month ago!

City Life

Studying Russian in Moscow has given me a wonderful and unique perspective on Russian culture. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning Russian against the backdrop of the beating heart of Russia’s capital city. Moscow has a wealth of things to see and enjoy. From the sunny parks, to wonderful food, historic museums and a beautiful and varied architectural ensemble, you will never be short of things to do. Make the most of every day of your stay here!

Hi! I'm Megan, a university student from the UK, currently studying Russian at Liden & Denz Language Centre in Moscow. My parents live in a small village in Kent, but I go to university in London. I started learning Russian just nine months ago, but I never dreamed I would be spending summer in Moscow studying it! I study history at university, where I have become very interested in Russian history, especially Peter the Great, the Decembrists and Siberia throughout Russian history, so I hope to write about everyday history in the city while I am here. My month in Moscow is the perfect way to absorb as much Russian culture and history as possible, so I can go back to university ready for my final year and to write my dissertation on Siberian Exiles in 17th Century. Outside the classroom, I enjoy playing sports - I have fenced for England and Great Britain and I am captain of the LSE Women’s Basketball Team - and I also love to travel. My favourite places (aside from Moscow of course!) have been Cape Town, for its immense natural beauty, and Budapest, for its fun atmosphere! I love to try local food wherever I go, so I hope to be blogging about the culinary delights of Moscow during my stay here.
