The guys learnt Russian hard twice a week for 1,5 hours a lesson. They began with learning letters, sounds and spelling. Then they started to ask questions on Russian grammar and Russia, watched with great pleasure various videos on Moscow, Moscow underground, Saint Petersburg and Russian winter.
It was a pain for them to spell the letter "ы". Not everyone could seize the difference between the words "стул" ("stul", chair) and "стол" ("stol", table). Soft and hard signs almost drove them crazy, the students just cried out: "What are they for?!" However, despite all the difficulties the students are ready to continue learning Russian and give serious thought to study at RUDN University.
Andrey Kostin, Russian oncologist, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor, corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, became the first Vice-Rector, Vice-Rector for Research at RUDN University.
