American banker from Switzerland arrived at TPU to study Russian

Scott Richardson arrived in Tomsk from Switzerland. He works in a banking sector including banks from Russia and CIS. Scott came here to attend Summer school at the Institute of International Education and Language Communication as he wants to improve his level of Russian and become acquainted with Siberia. He was fascinated by Russian culture from childhood. Scott always wanted to study Russian but there was no opportunity to do it at school or at the University, so he began to study Russian after graduation using a teach-yourself Russian book. Scott Richardson has traveled a lot. He lived in Bolivia being a volunteer of Peace Corps, then in Poland and England. He speaks Italian, Spanish, Polish and Quechuan (the language of South American Indians. He also lived in Moscow for a year where he worked in a bank. In Moscow Scott took an intensive three-month course of Russian. Now he speaks Russian quite fluently, nevertheless he decided to improve his level this summer. Scott often visits Moscow and other Russian cities on business but chose Tomsk to study Russian. He found information about TPU and its Summer school on the Internet and thought that a trip to Siberia could be exciting. Scott says that it’s more interesting to communicate with people in small cities like Tomsk as people are more friendly and open-hearted here.
