Tandem program that started at PetrSU two years ago is up-and-coming. This Thursday our new foreign students from the UK met with their Tandem partners.
International students eagerly seized the opportunity to communicate with their peers from Russia as it gives them a great insight into the Russian language and culture. On the other hand, PetrSU students and the townies can practice their foreign language skills and, as native-speakers, can give guidance to the Russian language learners.
The participants decided to continue communication right after introducing to each other. They agreed to meet at least 4 times a week. It will be a good practice for all of them. We believe it is a good start for international friendship.
