I learned a lot of new words, how to navigate and conduct myself in a Russian office environment, and a lot about the non-profit sector and NGOs in Russia. I do think that my Russian was enhanced, both in that I was exposed to an entire new category of words that had not been a part of my vocabulary, and in that I was regularly conversing with Russians. It was the best aspect of my stay in Russia.
