So, Ulugbek (Ulik) Ikrimov, a student from Tajikistan, came this year to study at the Faculty of Philology having passed a competitive selection in his homeland. Ulik didn’t have any difficulties passing a test as he had been studying Russian as a foreign language for three years at school. As the student himself notes, such qualities as diligence, studiousness and patience helped him reach a high level of proficiency in the Russian language.

Visiting Sattuma concert
SattumaOn May, 29, the folk-group “Sattuma” gave its anniversary concert in the National theatre of Karelia. It’s not just a folk-group but a family folk-group as its members are fathers and their children. They appeared on the scene in 2003 and perform their songs in Finnish as well as various dialects. The members of the group explain that they sing in Finnish and the languages of the small peoples because they enjoy it and find it appealing. “Sattuma” is a very popular group in Petrozavodsk and it was proved again by the full concert hall in the National theatre. Soon the group releases its fifth album named “JOO KYLLÄ” (“Yes, of course!”).




The Exhibition The Solovki: Calvary and Resurrection
MattewOur Canadian student Matthew Vasilev celebrated the last day of his studies in an unusual manner. Together with his teacher Marina Khazova he visited the exhibition “The Solovki. Calvary and Resurrection” which was brought to Petrozavodsk by the Solovki State Museum-Reserve. The history of the monastery on the Solovki Islands comprises 500 years. Its chapters are at times dramatic and even tragic. The plentifulness of illustrative information, from reproductions of ancient maps to modern photographs and videos, helped the visitors to plunge into history. Matthew is sure that one day he will definitely come back to Russia to visit this amazing place.




From Morn to Midnight
From Morn to MidnightPetrSU foreign students from the UK attended a silent film show. This event was a part of the Year of Germany in Russia. The audience could enjoy the movie “Von morgens bis Mitternachts” (From Morn to Midnight) by Karl Heinz Martin. The film is one of the most characteristic and best-known works of German Expressionism. The special thing about this event was that the movie was accompanied with music. The Band Yarga Sound System from Petrozavodsk and DJ D‘dread from Germany helped the event to become real magic.




Back to the Past
1The students from Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany and Finland, who are studying Russian, made a journey to the cradle of the Karelian civilization. The journey took place in the Archaeological Museum of the Karelian Research Centre of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Svetlana Ivanovna Kochurkina, DSc, the head of the Museum, was their guide to this mysterious world.
Svetlana told the students about the time when the settlement had began in the Karelian land. She answered the questions like “Who were ancient people?”, “What was their occupation?”, “What they left behind?” There was a special conversation about the Middle Ages in Karelia: town-building, everyday life, relations with the Novgorod Republic and the neighbouring countries. Svetlana Ivanovna, who had participated in digging of dead villages and cities, showed the photos of diggings and interesting archaeological finds which were really unique and unequalled.




Our students (Lee Hancock)
Lee HancockLee came to Russia from the USA. Some time ago he wanted to set up a business in Russia but because of the financial crisis he decided not to take risks and try another adventure – learning the Russian language. So, seven years ago Lee came to the Institute of International Programs of Petrozavodsk State University.
Lee is sure that learning languages at his age is very helpful for brains. Besides, he thinks Russian is a very interesting language to learn. Moreover, every day Lee learns something new about Russia and the Russian people and that helps him to break stereotypes, as his childhood and youth in the USA fell at the time of the Cold War. He says that at those times he could not even imagine himself living in Russia.
