MOSCOW: Christiana, 15, was sitting at Gorky Park with friends on a recent weekday.
Christiana, who enjoys evening walks and the Arctic Moneys, attends a high school that has a special focus on English with 5 lessons a week, each lasting 45 minutes.
She also takes 5 private English classes a week, each lasting 1.5 hours. Though the start of a work career is many years off, I asked Christiana about future plans.
She said she would like to become a journalist as she enjoys conversing with different people.
