Here's my room !
The dormitory is glued to the university. It is a large building with 9 floors. Floor 6 is reserved for foreign students and the others for Russians. It is very pretty and very suitable for the price (23 € / month). Each room contains 2 rooms with 2 beds each. There are 2 bathrooms: one with a bathtub and the other with a toilet. In the airlock there is a fridge. There is a kitchen for all students on the same floor (they are not very clean and there is only hotplates).
There are washing machines on the 9th floor and it costs only 40 rubles (50centimes euros).
It is not advisable to drink tap water because the pipes are very old and there is plomp in the water.
Sheets and towels are provided.
I even have a small balcony but I do not have a nice view. However, other rooms have seen on a skyscraper which is the place where rents are the most expensive in Moscow !!
We arrived, with Édouard, on Monday, 05/02/2018 at 11pm at Sheremetyevo airport. Fortunately the airport is only 15 minutes away by taxi. My bodie, aleksandra, wait for us in the hall of the school. We were given an electronic card (which should not be lost). It allows us to enter / exit at any time from the faculty. We registered at the reception then, direction our room!
We came face to facewith french lyonnais! Amazing more than 2500 km from Lyon ;). We made a little acquaintance with them, but sleep won us.
Little surprise at the time of writing a small message to reassure our loved ones .... To have wifi, you need a Russian phone number! I did not sleep very well the first night because it is very hot in the Russian interiors (30 ° C).
Tuesday, February 6th, we met svetlana and Tatiana (the direction in charge of the international exchanges). They gave us a lot of information including schedules and the list of courses we could follow.
After that, we met a lot of very friendly foreigners! Americans, Austrians, French, British, Germans, Chinese etc ...
It's very nice because we do a lot of outings together, restaurants etc .. So we had a very good integration.
Regarding the courses, the teachers do not speak all English which is a shame because we have not been able to take some courses .. But they are all very nice to us. Russian students, meanwhile, try to talk to us but not always successfully :P. They are very kind and help us willingly.
