Personal highlights

  1. University of Foreign Studies: important school for the future elite
  2. Classroom: sitting in a class and briefly talking to local students
  3. Teacher: speaks well English and has a funny way of teaching
  4. Building: boring grey soviet architecture with long and dark hallways
  5. My experience: bright people are hard working in a grim environment
