Russian, pivotal in international politics and literature, provides insights into Russia’s vast cultural and historical landscape. Essential for Eastern European studies and global business, especially in energy, learning Russian deepens understanding of literary giants like Tolstoy and Dostoevsky. It opens career paths in various sectors and offers unique perspectives on the world’s largest nation, its scientific and artistic achievements, and global influence.
