Everyone is invited whether you prepare or not. However, lower-level students might feel more at home by studying Russian vocabulary ahead of time: about games, sports, musical instruments, weather and seasons, other leisure activities, and any verbs, adjectives, and adverbs you associate with them. Intermediate students could study terminology specific to the hobbies and sports they do, and make sure that they can ask questions like these in Russian.
