Introduction

The Russian language has always been one of the most widely spoken languages, not only in Russia but in the whole world. According to recent research, more than 500 million people speak Russian, making it the world's third most commonly spoken language after Chinese (more than 1 billion speakers) and English (750 million). It is one of the official or working languages in many international organizations (e.g. UNO, UNESCO, IAEA, WHO, etc). More and more students learn Russian as a second foreign language. A lot of economists, managers, lawyers, artists, and those who take part in different international projects and have international contacts are interested in the Russian language, Russian culture, and Russia itself. Although the number of specialized Russian language courses and Russian language schools is constantly increasing all over the world, it is most popular to study Russian in Russia. It is widely accepted that the best way to master the language is to visit the country where it is spoken as the first language. Thus learning the Russian language in Russia is without a doubt the best decision. With ceaseless communication with Russian native speakers on a wide range of topics, you'll learn Russian in Russia in an easy and natural way. Nowadays, there are a lot of Russian language schools for foreigners not only in Russia but in the former Soviet Republics (such as Belarus, Ukraine, Kazahstan). However, it is only by taking Russian language courses in Russia that you can learn the real language through full immersion. So Russian in Russia is the best choice!
