Memories on language studies in Oxford "For English to Oxford". Academic Oxford - is not only University and its students. Many school students from CIS go there on holidays to learn basic English in British style. Here we put up memories of a typical Russian girl who many would find interesting and reminding them of their own experiences in Oxford: "..Airplane Moscow-London was full to the top with school children. They all fly to "plunge into the atmosphere of the native-speakers". But only the truly persistent do manage to do this as there are now many Russians in most colleges. I learnt this when I arrived in Oxford which I chose to improve my English.." Please see the rest in the Russian section of the site "Rossiyane v segodnyashnem Oxforde".

An exciting book has come out in the bookshops recently in Moscow by an British historian Peter Hopkirk "The Great Game: On Secret Service in High Asia" which tells a fascinating story about Russo-British competition in Asia and in the Caspian. It is full of stories on travellers, spies, officers, eccentrics. It also mentions Oxford a number of times. It states that after napoleonic Wars Russian cossacks were met with euphoria in Britain and one of them even received a Honarary Doctor title. It mentions also a British dimplomat in Turkey who after his graduation from University started to help Rebels in Caucausus to fight against the Tsar by supplying them with arms and materials.
