I'm Adrien, I'm French and I lived 7 months in Moscow where I have learnt Russian by a lot of language exchanges and courses.

I'm still student in France, I need to improve my Russian and I could have an opportunity for a job after my diploma in Kazakhstan.

That's why I would need a feedback about the life there, for example in comparison with France, Moscow, New Delhi or Perth...

The end of my diploma is on December 2013, so I have time, but I want to be prepared. So I think about spending one month learning Russian in Kazakhstan in order to get an experience, my own feedback, language and so, advantages for a future job there. (July or August)

So, could you advice me a city, a school, a way to stay or what you could know about it.

Any information or point of view could be interesting, don't hesitate to let something below, thanks to you :)

Hi !

It mostly depend on where you'd live.
If it is in Almaty or Astana, KZ will look like any big city, like oriental Moscow maybe. You can have an European life style without problem, those city are also full of expatriates.

If you'd work where the petrol or uranium is extracted, then it would be a lot less easy. They are mostly in the middle of the steppes. It could be a fun experience for few months anyway !

Anyway, compared to India, KZ is easy to live in, especially if you speak Russian !

If you want some more specific informations, send me a message, I'm also expatriate in KZ!
