Chinese New Year and Russian Maslenitsa
12In the midst of the pancake week the Institute of Education and Psychology held a remarkable Chun Jie event, which means Chinese New Year; it was organized by students of IEP, including Chinese first-year students who came to Petrozavodsk from distant Shanghai. The lecturers of the Institute and the Linguistic Centre took part in entertaining quest, during which they not only learned the Chinese New Year traditions, but also tried themselves as the creators of a holiday card, folk dance performers and even theatre actors. The culmination of the event was the collective performance of the New Year song in Chinese.

Foreigners come to Petrozavodsk not only to study but also to get acquainted with cultural life of Russia
1On 24th of November an event with a self-explanatory name “Film, Film, Film” took place in the City Showroom where songs and instrumental compositions from Russian and foreign films were performed. Participants of the concert, students and lecturers of Petrozavodsk Musical College named after K. Rautio, chose musical performances by themselves, so melodies from popular Soviet films as well as soundtracks from the recent movies were played.




What is fall?
21“The latter days of fall are often cursed” – a poet said, and it’s hard not to agree with him. Associations that appear in our mind when we hear the word “fall” can be identified with one word – unjoyful. Drizzling rain, low, grey sky, trees that lose their last leaves, cold wind. But why the best and the most poignant poems were written by Russian poets about this extraordinary time of year?




Movie day
Movie dayOn September 27, 2017, students and teachers of PetrSU Linguistic Centre went to the cinema to see the movie “Последний романтик” [The Last Romantic]. The film was chosen for a reason – Ivan Kulnev, movie director from Petrozavodsk, showed a simple love story that unfolds in the familiar places of Petrozavodsk. After watching the movie the students and teachers discussed it in an informal setting.
