Got my contract through the other day. 23 hours a week; 36,000 Rubles a month; 9 months.
I don't really know much Russian, and finding the motivation to learn is pretty difficult. I love the thrill of scraping by at first without knowing much of the language: makes me feel like I'm living life on hard mode.
The visa seems like a fucking hassle aswell. Just waiting for the letter of invitation from the school, so I can crack on with the process. Have to get myself a HIV test (kinda embarassing having to ring up and book appointment), somehow find £100, and then fill out a shitload of paperwork.
Shall all be worth it though I guess.
Anybody here been or from Russia and got any tips or advice? Or even anybody want to head out there theirselves and want me to help out with finding something?
