As always, the teachers of Russian as a foreign language held the annual Maslenitsa festival for international students to acquaint them with the Russian traditions.
Students from Finland, South Korea, Sweden, Norway and the UK have learned some of the Russian traditions during the class devoted to Maslenitsa festival. It became an international Maslenitsa because the students prepared their traditional pancakes. For example, the student from the Republic of Korea cooked national pancakes with sea cabbage.
A trailer of "The Barber of Siberia" became an excellent illustration of the material. It showed the Maslenitsa activities in Moscow of the XIXth century.
After the usual Russian Maslenitsa meal the students took part in traditional festival games and contests.
