Participation in exchange programs abroad is a part of individual educational tracks for many students of the Institute of Philology at PetrSU.

The opportunities to immerse into the educational environment of another country, learn something new, improve foreign language skills are only a part of what exchange programs provide for PetrSU students.

Anastasiia Amelina, a Master's Degree student of the Institute of Philology, is currently studying at the University of Turku, the second largest university in Finland after Helsinki. Anastasiia is studying Comparative Studies at PetrSU ("Comparative Studies. A Dialogue of Cultures in the World of Literature") and currently working on her master's thesis on the reception of Russia and Germany in the Works of Rainer Rilke and Marina Tsvetaeva.

Anastasiia's study program in Finland includes languages and literature in various aspects. 

“The Finnish teacher told us that we should never worry if we encounter any difficulties while learning the language. We can contact her with any problem if it appears.

I would really like to use this approach in my teaching practice - I know how difficult it can be to overcome the language barrier and get rid of the fear and embarrassment of making mistakes. Sometimes I still worry about making a mistake while communicating in a foreign language, and this is one of the reasons why I am here. As our teacher said, mistakes are absolutely normal, because we learn the language this way. I know that, but I always have to remind myself of it.”

- shared Anastasiia in her social media.
