Are they like russian district schools or something?
I lived in LA for a while and went to some public school in rather crap district so there were mainly armenians and coreans, but there weren't these languages as an option

In most of the eastern Europe, russian is still taught in primary education as a second language.

And the rest of the Europe tends to have elective third language in high school that tends to be french, german or russian.

English is harder for the russians for three reasons:

1) Incompatible alphabet. 'th' is for example completely untransliterable into cyrilic and russians tend to use ear-splitting ersatz like ф (f in fine) or з (x in xeno).

2) Different language group. Most of the world speak either romanic or germanic language. English is a mixture of french and north sea germanic so it's similar to both. Slavic group is completely different and thus is more difficult for slavs to learn, especialy online, without human contact.

3) Isolation. Nobody visits russia. The few who do visit the few sights Moscow and Petersburg has to offer and stick to the people they know. In every other bigger city around the world, you're gonna bump into foreigners and foreign students, eager to discuss everything without fear of reprisal which provides opportunities for learning. Russia is cold, xenophobic, hostile and unforgiving nations, where your worth is determined by who you know and where you still can get killed or badly beaten for having opinion. Theres not much of a social mingling, especially not with foreigners.

So many Russians speak English the last time I went there. Especially the kids. Maybe not very fluently, but still. [I'm also Russian]

Easy there, now
It's like that mostly, I'll give that. But one can learn just fine, if he wants to. And the third one is some kind of stereotype. You'd find none of that in most of cities. Can't say about the countryside though. Your rednecks aren't better anyway

Rednecks?   
mfw I was born in Leningrad.   
   
Parents moved out of the country rly quickly tho. Still, all the russians I know live up to the horrible stereotype. And the news I read and watch about russia aren't helping much (RT and Pravda, to not be accused of reading western propaganda). Last time russian friend wanted to assure me it's safe to visit place of my birth he said something "reassuring" like "Cut your hair, so they won't beat you for looking gay, cut your beard so they won't beat you up for looking jew, try not to have any opinion and you'll be fine."   
   
And well, even the Japanese manage to learn english. The point is that for germanics and romanics it's way easier. And as somebody said earlier, russians don't really care about english.

What about rednecks?
Dude, I still live in Russia, not even in Moscow and I'm perfectly good there, despite my rather gay-like look and desire to say things better left unspoken, and guess what? I don't recall being beaten even once. In the US there are no less gangs and wannabes than in here.
Russia's wheeling to hell in the straightest path, that's so, but if you've got some sense you'll be alright. I don't watch news on TV nor I read it; so far I'm quite fine.
I had been living in America 'round a year and I travel a lot, so I know how people supposed to live, I'm planning to move abroad myself, but even so I can't say that things around here are as horrible as you think they are. Call me lucky, might be that's the reason

Queer coincidence, but that's just where I'm heading.
Well, if only I'd get visa for an education, which I should get/not get by the end of May. There's some **** going on, the assholes in the embassy reject every two in three russians who apply for long-term visa

The Czech byrocracy is pretty infamous. Austrian school i guess. Also there's ongoing fright about eastern cheap workforce "taking our jobs". You should have no problems with studies if you proof-read the protocols though.

Also long-term visas are kinda derped, as the education long term visa is actually not meant for the colleges. You need long term residency for those.

I'm to go to UNYP, which isn't a college. And I don't want to settle/work in CR as I don't know Czech nor I want to learn it.
And I kinda missed your last statement. Long term residency is supposed to be your dorm/flat which you ought to prove by the letter of accommodation, so it goes within education long term visa

It's just different form and the "long term study visa" is not meant for colleges which some find weird. Byrocracy...

Your silly DoTA 2 may be superior in every way, but do you have Draven? No, didn't think so.


Also, the whole "Riot managed to get rid of most russian and turkish players by giving them their own server with bonuses and a free transfer" thing. But mainly Draven.

Except you stereotyping an entire country for playing games badly, that stereotype isn't even correct since Russian gamers tend to be good, not like South Korean gamers, but definitely better than Brazilian gamers.
