Салом! Ман Кадимов Рахмон Хусайнович, хатмкунандайи бакалавриати факултайи хим-биологи Донишгохи давлатии омузгории шахри Томск хастам. Холо бошад, хонданро дар хамин факулта бо хайси магистр, баъди нисфирузи идома додаистодаам ва сахаргохон бошад ба хайсии муалими химия дар мактаби миенаии №12 кору фаолият дорам. Ман шахсан аз номи худам ва баъдан аз номи хатмкунандагони факултайи хим-биолог, минатдории худро ба омузгорону рохбарони ДДОТ мерасонам. Сатхи илму амал омузии дар Донишгох бисер баландаст, ва ногуфта намонад ки дар инчо танхо илм чойи намоенро мегирад ва баройи супоридани зачоту экзаменхо ягон сум лозим нест. Гайр аз ин дар Донишгох шароити машку тамрин мухае хаст(ман хусусан дар Донишгох ба гурзбардории машгул хастам ва алакай КМС дорам, багайр 3- маротиба голиби шахрии Томск шудам, ва даххо маротиба чойхоии намоенро ишгол кардам).

I truly couldn't have asked for better Russian teachers! They tailored their classes not only to our Russian ability but also to our interests and I would never have dreamed that my Russian would improve so much in such a short amount of time. Thanks to the focus on phonetics and vocabulary, I've often been complimented by Russian speakers on my accent and knowledge of slightly obscure Russian words. We covered all aspects of language learning and our teachers always pushed us to achieve our best, while still maintaining a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in the class. Studying Russian has never been so much fun!

Belajar di Tomsk State Padegogical University memberikan saya banyak pengalaman baru, dan pengetahuan baru tentang sistem belajar yang berbeda dengan sistem belajar di perguruan tinggi pada umumnya di Indonesia. Tenaga pengajar di universitas ini juga sangat profesional dan menguasai bidang mereka masing-masing. Belajar di ruangan yang nyaman dengan kelengkapan media pendukung di setiap ruangan menjadikan pembelajaran lebih efektif dan efesien. Hal lain yang tidak kalah penting, khususnya bagi mahasiswa asing adalah urusan administrasi. Pengurusan semua dokumen dan kebutuhan informasi diproses dengan cepat, dan terdapat banyak kontak yang bisa dihubungi sesuai dengan kebutuhan mahasiswa dan biasanya mereka selalu meresponnya dengan cepat.

Minha experiência em Tomsk foi inesquecível! A universidade e o setor de relações internacionais me deram suporte para tudo, do início ao fim de minha estadia. Tive a oportunidade de ter aulas maravilhosas sobre a cultura e a história da Rússia, experimentei comidas típicas, conheci museus e estudei o idioma com uma professora excelente, disposta a tirar minhas dúvidas e a tornar o momento em sala de aula agradável. Aprendi e me diverti bastante! Sem contar ainda o acesso liberado à biblioteca da Universidade! O contato com os outros estudantes também foi fundamental nesse processo de adaptação à cidade, onde pude aprender ainda mais sobre o idioma e os costumes locais. Assim que fui embora, já senti saudades da TSPU!
