The foreign students coming to study at PetrSU are interested both in higher education and in the educational system in Russia on the whole. That is why several times this academic year they visited Petrozavodsk secondary schools.
During such meetings our students acquaint the Karelian schoolchildren with their mother countries which they of course miss while studying. All presentations and reports are usually delivered in their native or the Russian language. Nobody can tell about the country better than its native!
The schoolchildren, in their turn, tell about their studies in Russia, about the school life. At the end of the meetings all participants have conversation about one thing and another that are interesting both for the Russians and for the foreigners.
Such meetings are useful for both parties: the schoolchildren learn about new countries firsthand, practice their knowledge of foreign languages, and the international students learn more about Russia, its system of education, promote their countries and practice the Russian language more.
