Zhou Zhi (China)

Camp in Programming

ITMO was right for us, and we had the most powerful team of teachers to organize training. I learned a lot of knowledge and technology, felt the foreign learning atmosphere and the system, enriched my own experience. All of these can help me in the future study and life to get more inspiration.

Russian Language and Culture

St. Petersburg is a beautiful place with good people. I made new friends and witnessed breathtaking architecture. I was impressed with professionalism of the lecturers. What remained in our hearts was not what we learned, but impression towards Russian literature and deeper understanding of richness of Russian culture.

Russian Language and Culture

It was better than my expectations. The summer school was perfect, the teachers were the best I ever had, and I truly want to come back. The program could not be more effective to me, except if I can stay a year in St Petersburg!
