    Four of Devon Grapevine & Olive Tree Association’s volunteer English teachers have just spent a few days in Exeter’s twinned Russian city of Yaroslavl. During the trip, Victoria Furtado, Bruce Freeman, Jan Honey and Paul Vass, visited a number of Russian schools and had the opportunity to teach some classes and meet fellow Russian English teachers. The teachers also ran some teacher training workshops for their Russian colleagues and were involved in a variety of cultural events arranged by the Exeter- Yaroslavl Twinning Association (EYTA).

    It was a wonderful trip and a very rewarding experience. The Russian host families and everyone in Yaroslavl connected to EYTA and beyond, were incredibly welcoming and hospitable. Russia is a fascinating place to visit – give it a try! Some Yaroslavl members of EYTA will be visiting Exeter sometime in July 2016. We’re really looking forward to meeting them and providing the same warmth and hospitality.
