I am from Russia but currently live in Ghent, Belgium. I study here photography and also work as freelance photographer. I am 25 years old and this is my second higher education. Before that I was graduated from Moscow Academy of Laws. I learn Dutch and also Hebrew and Japanese (had a big pause with the last two though but now I am planning to continue) because i like languages in general, this is a beautiful invention of mankind and it broadens your perception of life i think. I am also professional teacher of Russian as foreign language, I graduated from Lomonosov's University in Moscow. Italki is a great possibility to find other people studying languages – and from my experience all of them are very intelligent and nice to talk to.
