What better way to understand the Russian language and culture than to
immerse oneself completely in it?  Ramiss, a non-profit organization in
Penza (the real heart of Russia!) can give you this opportunity.  Our
language centre is looking for English language teachers.  During the
academic year, we offer individual and small group lessons for all levels
and ages.  In the summer we organize English language day camps for
school children.  Schedules are flexible, and allow enough time for
"experiencing" Russian life.

During the summer, teachers are welcome to come for short periods of time
(from 1 month).  During the academic year we would prefer commitments of
minimum 6 months.
