Working Hassle-free in Moscow
Thank you so much for the great opportunity of coming to work for you at Language Link in Moscow. I found my regrettably short stay with you fascinating and exciting beyond what I had expected. I met many really interesting people during my stay, especially those in the ‘Language Link community’: my students, my fellow teachers and your administrative staff, who were unfailingly helpful.
And, thanks to you, this was a painless, hassle-free experience. Having had a lot of experience of living abroad, I really appreciated the end-to-end help and support offered by Language Link: from applying for my visa in London before I left, through being met at the airport in Moscow and having a perfectly acceptable apartment arranged for me to live in, to the handling of all my registration and other formalities with the local bureaucracy ...to be driven back to the airport at the end of my stay. An expat banker friend, who’s lived in Moscow since the mid 1990s, stressed in no uncertain terms the value of this hassle-free experience!
Above all, my trip was made memorable by the kindness and sense of humour of the many ordinary Russians I met; in my local food store, at the blini seller in our neighbourhood street market, at my local Mu-Mu Restaurant, at the famous Sanduny Bagna and at the Conservatoire, where I enjoyed a wonderful series of concerts, which seemed to cost next to nothing compared with what we have to pay here in London.
Thank you again for a really unforgettable and professionally enriching experience and I’d tell anyone thinking of teaching with you, to go for it ...without any hesitation whatsoever!
