- Summer courses helped me a lot. It let me systematize my knowledge. The teachers taught us patiently. I also learned a lot about Irkutsk, and it allows me to get to know its culture and history better.

- During the course I learned a lot of new words, a lot of grammar rules. I realized that I wanted to live and study in Irkutsk. Of course, there are many things I need to learn. I am sure that I can and will definitely graduate from Irkutsk State University.

- I really liked these summer courses. It was wonderful to get a lot of new things, e.g. I studied the grammar of the Russian language, visited Irkutsk via a virtual tour.
