Studying at University Of Oxford

 

    Summary

    I currently study as a Modern languages student at Oxford University. I am currently on my year abroad and this affords me the experience to adapt to different environments and cultures, something I thrive on. Last year I worked at a children’s camp in Russia, being both a group leader and an English teacher. This proved a challenging yet rewarding experience, enhancing both my language skills and my ability to be organised, resourceful and innovative in the way I work. I am currently studying at Tver State University whilst also working as an English teacher as a side job. I have to prepare my own lessons with little aid, which again forces me to be highly adaptable, especially with the variety of skill levels and ages I teach. My current goals are to further develop my own use of languages and to integrate them into the core of any future career path. My interest in languages also manifests itself as a keen interest in foreign affairs and thus I aim to work in areas related to international relations.
