I am a international student and i will go to study at PFU in august 2007. I intend to take MD program in english medium. I am wavering between studying russian language in 1 years before enrolling in MD program in English medium and studying directly in the first year of the MD program in englsih medium. I have not decided because in one side, if i study directly in the first year of MD program so I can save time and money, but in other side, russian language is very important to communicate with russian people and practice with patient in the hospital.
Could you give me some advice? what solution i should choose?
Are there any international student choice study directly in the first year of MD course in English program ? Please tell me your experience. How can you live in russia when you don't have good russian language skill? how can you go to the bank, library, talk with professor and patient and many things......etc?
Thank you very much
