Hello from St. Petersburg!

Hello from St. Petersburg!
07 October 2019

Всем привет!

My name is Eda and I am from Turkey, Istanbul. I will be studying and interning as Social Media assistant at Liden&Denz in St. Petersburg for the next three months and I will share my experiences with you.  I want to tell you shortly about myself.

I am 24 years old and I live in Istanbul. I graduated from Beykent University, Department Russian Translation and Interpretation in 2019. I also have an associate degree in Public Relations and Publicity from Anadolu University and currently I am studying another associate degree in Civil Aviation Management from Istanbul University.

When I first met with Russian Language in the early years of the university, it was very difficult for me. After my first grammar class, I thought I couldn’t finish this university, but.. I did it! (I am still afraid of grammar…)  After traveling to Saint Petersburg and Moscow in 2017, I became more interested in Russian language and Russian culture. St. Petersburg was my favorite city than the first day. And I said to myself; One day I will come here again!  I’m here again after 2 years. In St. Petersburg. The city of my dreams.

If we look back; I have been to Germany in 2009 as an Exchange Student. Afterwards, in the summer of 2016, I have been to United States for 4 months, with the “Work & Travel” program. That experience helped me a lot to develop myself with my language skills in English. I love traveling and exploring.  In Turkey I am an editor for several blog pages and I have my own blog, Flamingone, which I am managing. By the way, this is my first English blog post! I’m already very excited about my next blogs and social media post. I can’t wait to tell you about every part of this beautiful city, our beautiful school Liden & Denz and my adventures in Russian language.

If you ask: ‘’Alright Eda! You’re a graduated from Russian Translation and Interpretation , but what’s your Russian language level? Can you speak Russian well?’’ When I got bachelor’s degree in Russian, I mostly have gotten lessons and lectures of grammar. I was not given any chance to practice my speaking skills in Russian. I would very much like to advance my speaking skills in Russian. I’m sure I’ll improve myself on language for 3 months at Liden & Denz. I’m so lucky to have internship at such a beautiful language school.

I hope all my experiences and posts will inspire those who want to learn Russian and look deeper into Russian culture.

Никогда не сдавайся, Следуй за своей мечтой!

До скорого!
