Her task is to promote intercultural exchanges, it is important to show real Russian culture abroad so there could be a good understanding of it. While that is taking place, it is also necessary for Russian students to open understanding about the culture of other countries as well as lifestyles.

With her experience, she will guide you into discovering unique cultural traditions in Spain as well as facilitating you the chance of establishing communication bonds in Spanish language.
