    Wednesday, all the hip and cool people are writing without hyphens inserted between every word. I suggest you join in the trend if you don't want to look like a total lamer, dude.

    The cool kids are also restraining themselves from rolling their eyes after each post.

    [quote="joysof"][quote="JB"]what I see in Moscow (it happens in Paris and London too, although rather more discreetly) is racial profiling and it isn't acceptable. [quote]

    Hah funny you should mention that. I'm a 6'4" tall white male and I am profiled against in France. Everytime I enter the country be it by train or by airplane I am stopped for a "random" check. This has happened since I was 13. I am now 25.

    you should see some of the text messages that I get here in china from my students...

    sometimes-they-like-to-write-with-hyphens-

    and.sometimes.they.like.to.write.with.periods.

    andamazinglytheysometimesthinkthatitsokaytowritewi thoutspaces

    I've actually seen them write sentences without spaces in their notebooks.

    Which leads to one conclusion...China is crazy...

They also do all of the registration and save you a lot of hassel and wasted time. DO NOT attempt to go to OVIR and register by yourself. You will be frustrated, angry and never get registered ( which can create a world of problems). DO stay at the school's dorm or apartment housing. There is a new law in Russia that you MUST have your landlord sign you in at a totally different office before you can register. If you go to a school you don't have to deal with any of these problems. You just relax and have fun. The school I go to is inexpensive and even has work/study options.
    Another option is to go through a travel agency and get a 30 day tourist visa. But you can only stay at and be registered by a hotel. This will cost a lot more than a school and will be a lot less fun. A school is a great place to make friends and have a much better experience.
    I was interested in doing a work/language study in Moscow, and am having a bit of difficulty getting started. Can you recomend the school you are currently attending?

    See the website for Language Link in Moscow in my previous post. I did a year and a half of classes with them and found them to be honest and reliable along with providing a good program. My girlfriend did a work/study program there and was happy with her experience also. I don't go there now because I live 2 hours north of Moscow, but would go again if I had the time and lived closer.
    Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.
