On December 18, the participants of the Pre-Foundation Program from Jordan and their instructor L.L. Chinenova visited Petrozavodsk Rautio Music College where they had a meeting with the college students.
The students of the college organized a concert for their guests. They played the piano, violin, sang a song in Karelian. The guests from Jordan enjoyed the Russian folk song “Travushka-muravushka” the best. It was performed by the 3-year student Antonina Gureva and accompanied by Irina Matseralnik.
But the most important thing was the communication between the students in Russian, English and Arabic. The Russian students had a chance to hear the Arabic language, learned some phrases with the help of the new friends and learned something about Jordan. This is how the Russian and the Jordanian students celebrated the day of the Arabic language which is celebrated exactly on December 18.
The atmosphere of the meeting was warm and friendly. The guests and the hosts expressed a wish to continue the communication.
