This introduction to the culture of Russia may be presented by Ambassador Dmitry Yarushkin or his father Alexander Yarushkin. Both are university professors (though Alexander is now retired) who love to share the Russian language and cultural traditions with students of all ages.

In this workshop, students will learn and practice some of the most common Russian words and phrases while learning about Russian geography, history, and traditions. They will also enjoy a tea ceremony using a samovar (special kettle used to prepare tea) and sample some typical Russian desserts. Students will also learn to write their names using the Russian alphabet.
