Language practice for English students in PetrSU: exciting, amusing, useful.
The students of the University of Birmingham (England) finished their language practice which lasted four weeks; during a special ceremony each of them was presented with a Certificate.
For the students whose major is the humanities (languages, history, literature, politics) and the Russian language, such training has become annual since the year 2006.
We are glad to mention that this year Natalie Hill came as the group leader. Four years ago Natalie was a second-year student herself, and studied at our University within the very first group of English students.
Starting from June, 21st and up to July, 17th fifteen students were working hard on Russian grammar, phonetics, and conversational skills, with the help of our instructors. The final grammar test and the final conference on vital topics showed how effective and exciting it was for the students to live and study in Russia.
The most successful in grammar was Timothy Wojewodka, and Alison Hood made the best presentation at the conference. Charlotte Hamling was nominated for the best essay on the topic ‘Karelia, familiar and not’.
