Kaliningrad for Russian?

Postby Aug » Fri Aug 17, 2012 7:53 pm

Hey everyone! I am less than two weeks away from leaving for Russia! I'm going to be doing a "pre-university program" there to get my Russian up to a university level. I'm going to be doing that at the polytechnic school in St. Petersburg, and since I want to major in humanities later on I've been looking for schools to transfer to after this year.

I was looking at the Immanuel Kant State University in Kaliningrad and found a program that might be interesting. Granted the information was in Russian so I may have misunderstood some things, but it looks like they have a 5-year, I assume combined Bachelor's/Master's, in linguistics/interpreting and translation.

Do any of you know anything about this school or program by chance?

Once I finish, I will have been in Russia for about 6 years. Hopefully my level of Russian will be pretty high by then. ;)

Thanks!
Audrey

I unfortunately can't offer you any advice about Kaliningrad or the university there, but I just wanted to say have a great time in St. Petersburg and keep us posted on your progress!

Thanks! I will. I figured it's probably not well-known. The top interpreting schools seem to be in francophone regions... :/ That would be a whole new undertaking.

Darf ich mal fragen, ist Ihre Muttersprache Deutsch oder Englisch? Wo haben Sie studiert? Ich bin einfach neugierig. :) Sorry, dass ich auf Deutsch geschrieben habe. Ich will üben, weil ich schon viel verloren habe.

My native language is English and I got my bachelor's in the states, I'm starting at ESIT in October though (ABC English, German, French). You don't have to apologize for writing in German though, it's not like I didn't understand :).

haha yes, I just thought switching to German was a little odd ;) Good luck with the ESIT!

No worries, I have a feeling I'm going to be doing the same thing when I move to Paris just so I can try to keep my German up while simultaneously improving my French! Have a great time in St. Petersburg!
