Video Call to Russia

On Monday, Russian A Level students were lucky enough to be able to communicate with our Russian peers studying in Moscow over Skype. Not only were we able to practise our Russian language skills by asking questions and engaging in chat; we also learnt about the life of teenagers in Russia and to our surprise discovered young people in Russia prefer to watch Riverdale, Stranger Things and Gossip Girl compared to their native programmes—we aren’t so different after all! Thanks to this wonderful opportunity, we learnt that even though our Russian counterparts live over 3,000 miles away, we are one and the same and we cannot wait for the opportunity to speak to them again.
