Russian is the most widely spoken Slavic language and one of the United Nation’s official languages. Besides Russia, Russian is also the official language of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, and a de facto language for many regions in Eastern Europe.
While these Russian speaking countries have great business capacities, they are also rich in history and are famous for the scholarships in the field of science and technology. In addition, many authors and artists also established great traditions in visual arts, ballet, theater, literature and music. Understanding the Russian language will allow you to learn the cultural context through a linguistic and literary fashion.
