Description

Overview:
Russian is best learnt when both written and oral skills are taught together within the context of the Russian way of life. Russian culture is, therefore, an essential part of this eight-week beginners course designed to help you learn the basic language skills necessary for communicating in Russian.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream in New Zealand Print E-mail

by Olga Suvorova, Prior Group

“All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players”           (William Shakespeare)
In fifteen years of working as an interpreter I have found myself in different situations: flying in helicopters above vineyards with potential investors, descending thirty metres into the ocean with Russian tourists, checking out gigantic smelter pots with foreign top managers at one of Russia’s largest aluminium companies, supporting fellow countrymen while they were undergoing surgical procedures, and even going through numerous checks from the relevant services in order to gain access to the New Zealand Parliament to translate for the Prime Minister and Ministers. But until today the thought never entered my head that at some point I should be walking the streets of New Zealand’s capital … with the gigantic head of a 6-metre puppet.

Interview with Stuart Prior, former New Zealand Ambassador to Moscow (2003-2006) Print E-mail

April 13, 2014 - 70th Anniversary of Russia-New Zealand Diplomatic Relations

Interview with Stuart Prior, former New Zealand Ambassador to Moscow (2003-2006), Honorary Consul for the Republic of Belarus in New Zealand, Chairman of Prior Group
Olga Suvorova conducted the interview at the request of the Editorial Board (Nasha Gavan #63)

1Q Mr Prior, how did you become interested in Russia?

I fell in love with the Russian alphabet at High School. A lady offered to teach basics of Russian in after-school classes. I went along out of interest. The alphabet was fascinating. Russian language was being taught at the University of Otago. I enrolled for Year 1 of Russian – and was amazed by the richness of the culture and thought behind the language, and the history of Russia through the eyes of my extraordinary Professor, an exiled “White” Russian, Dr Nicholas Zisserman.  He gave me knowledge and insights which have shaped my life and career. To him I have a huge debt which I shall repay as best I can.

Russia - New Zealand Quotes

I've never been to New Zealand before. But one of my role models, Xena, the warrior princess, comes from there. Madeleine Albright, 1995
Есть в Новой Зеландии та чистота, которая уже давно отсутствует в Штатах, да и во всём остальном мире. Это уникальное место. Особая удалённость и отдалённость, и в то же время чувствуешь себя в полной безопасности. Элайя Вуд, 2003

Prior Group Market Reports

Russia - New Zealand History

We are having long lambskin coats made with outer surface of Gabardine. A good warm cloth overcoat is also recommended by Australian Legation which advises in addition, furlined coat. We have not examined cost of latter but have been informed by a local resident previously living in Russia that they are “de rigueur” for official classes, sheepskin coats being associated with peasantry…Fur caps and furlined gloves are recommended. Top hats are not being taken.
What a country in which the occurrence of queues outside shops is a sign of improving conditions.
It is the most wonderful springtime, the tenderest green on the trees. As always in Moscow, the spring is so fresh, it seems to be happening for the first time.
The Russian language is like a sack pulled over the head of the wretched foreigner. Those like Ruth Macky and me, who have cut an eyehole or two in the sack, have to lead by the hand those who are still living in the darkness. Curious, but the one who shows most promise of all the beginners is Mrs Boswell. For myself I reckon I’ll know Russian well in ten years’ time. It really is a monster of a tongue. Paddy Costello, New Zealand diplomat and linguist, Moscow, 1944
