Given its historical relationship with the West, many are surprised to learn that Russia is one of the fastest growing markets for the English language.  In and around the fascinating cities of Moscow and St Petersburg there is a particularly strong demand for foreign teachers. Life in Russia can be challenging for westerners in some ways, not least because of the winter weather, but for people who like a challenge and have a thirst for cultural enrichment, Russia should certainly be considered as an option. Current and former teachers suggest that the majority of people are friendly and fun-loving. The general rule is that with a warm coat and an occasional glass of vodka, life can be pleasant even in the harsh winters.
