Petr Lhotka (Czech Republic): «...Id been learning Russian for 4 year at school before I came here. And now I realized that it is much better to learn language here in Russia than in the Czech Republic. It is much easier to learn Russian in Russia. In the Czech Republic it is 45 minutes of a lesson. And here you can practice what you have just learned in your class in the Russian language all day long....»
