We would like to thank you again for your hospitality, your help, and the wonderful experience we had at the camp. Our friends and family were all excited to hear our stories and look at our pictures of the camp and the rest of Russia. In addition to the friend who wanted to come to the camp next time with us now another friend is interested and has us teaching him Russian phrases.
Please consider us your hosts if you ever wish to visit Canada as we would love to give you as in depth experience as we had in Russia. We couldn't have asked for more. Please stay in touch as we would love to come back to any and all camps that we can afford. Any information regarding future camps or other opportunities in Siberia would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for your hospitality!
The best thing about Siberia is that it is full of warm, friendly Russians.

I want to thank all of you for a great time over the past couple of weeks. I think we had many good times together that we all will remember. I wish all of you good luck in the future, and keep those smiles that made every day here a pleasure!

I`d like to thank again the people at the school that are making this un-
forgettable experience come true for any participant, through their hard work and efforts.
I hope that one day I could go back again, I will I promise. I could only encourage anybody who wants something very different and to learn something new to give a try and join the “Cosmopolitan” program in the beautiful Siberia.

I am missing Siberia already, I have many good memories of the time I spent there. I had an awesome time and everyone was so friendly. I really appreciate meeting everyone and the opportunity to learn some of the Russian language.
