Hello, I’m Patrick and I am doing radio engineering at Saratov State Technical University. Last two weeks I finished my first challenging but exciting semester. The semester began in September and honestly it was very difficult for me because I didn’t understand everything going on in class at all. I even tried to give up on my studies but I remembered that winners never quit then from that moment I started working hard, sleeping few hours and trying to improve my Russian level, subsequently I started understanding what I was studying. It wasn’t easy to finish the semester that is why I thank my classmates and the teachers for their generosity towards me that greatly helped me to pass all exams with grade 4. It really surprised me and made me very happy, and it greatly encouraged me again to work hard in the second semester.
