As a member of BRISA (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), Russia is a growing economic force. Distinguished by it's large, fast-growing economy and significant influence on regional and global affairs - Russia is starting to dominate the global horizon. It is no surprise then that we are seeing an increasing influence of Russia in the UAE, with many companies and trade agreements developing. This in turn has created a rise in the demand of those living here in the UAE to learn Russian. Certainly, Russian speakers are a frequent necessity on the regions 'job boards' and thus learning Russian would command you a significant career advantage. If there's one emerging language to pursue right now in the UAE, Russian has got to be it!
