My Hero of Russia

The students and instructors of the Russian Language Academy presented “My Hero of Russia.” Everyone selected their favorite politician, historical figure or writer.  After researching, everyone gathered to defend their chosen hero..


Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, Dostoyevsky, Bunin, Lenin, Tchaikovsky, Mendeleev and Gergiev were among the heroes celebrated.


After the presentations in Russian, English and even Spanish, everyone discussed the results over Russian zakusky and vodka.


The event was based on Russian TVs interactive program “Name of Russia” from 2008.


History, culture, arts and literature are all reasons students learn Russian at the Russian Language Academy.
