Living in a host family is also very popular for the students who are searching for a full immersion in the Russian way of life, its culture, traditions. It is also the best way to learn Russian. As a member of the family, the student can take part to the family’s activities and learn more about the Russian culture and traditions. In fact, many students keep being in contact with their host family when they go back home.
