Hello All,

I have recently moved from Australia to St Petersburg and while I know this is technically a Moscow site there is no equivalent for St Petes so I am saying hi to all from here...

also, a question...I am here doing research and learning russian, but earning extra cash by giving English lessons and doing some copy editing of english material. Any idea on the best ways to advertise my services in Russia? I know it mostly comes down to networks, but does anyone know any good english or Russian language web forums etc I could advertise on for private students or freelance copy editing, or have any tips?

Cheers

Hi! Why don't you try The St Petersbourg Times? Do you want to advertise in Internet only?

The St Petersburg Times is fine, but is mostly read by English speakers who don't need English lessons :) I want to teach Russians mostly, and specialise in legal English so I need to find a way to reach lawyers/paralegals who need help with English -not usually the St Petes Times readership! That said, I'm advertising there too...

advertise in the neighborhood newspapers.
classified adds.

otherwise, hit the hotels, the corp offices, and leave your info with the HR or Training Mngr.

its either that, or, stand on a corner of nevsky prospect and gostini dvor, advertising yourself, with one of those tripods on your neck ;o)
