Russia and Armenia have launched an educational project designed to bring the Russian language teaching system in the states of the former USSR to a new level. In the tasks of the joint program of the North Caucasian Federal University and the Armenian State Pedagogical University named after. Kh. Abovyan “Russian language: my formula for success” includes the search for talented students of philological and pedagogical faculties from Armenia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, their training and promotion. 10 participants will be selected from each republic.

The project activities will take place in two phases. At the first stage, distance learning will be organized for students under the additional educational program “Project Activities in Teaching the Russian Language”, at the second stage, the children will have face-to-face meetings with teachers at the Armenian Pedagogical University. Lectures to the winners of the competition will be read by leading Russian experts, including from NCFU and PFUR.

“We proposed a project that should bring together children from four countries where the Russian language is widely spoken,” said Vladimir Samoylenko, head of the department of international projects and programs at the North Caucasus Federal University, in an interview with Sputnik Armenia. – One of its main goals is to provide participants with the latest tools in teaching the Russian language.

In addition to the educational process, the program is aimed at expanding international relations between students and resuming active educational activities after the covid period.

We must remove all borders for students. A student in Yerevan, Minsk, Bishkek or Dushanbe is one and the same wonderful student, with the same plans, dreams, joys and sorrows. They should all understand that they are all wonderful specialists, and the more friends they have in different countries of the world, the better life they will have, the more opportunities they will have,” Samoylenko emphasized.

As part of the project, students will also be given the opportunity to participate in the “Young Leader School”, which will be held in December in Yerevan. A series of events will allow developing not only the acquired skills of project activities, but also such competencies as leadership and the ability to work in a team.

Applications for the competition from students of 3-4 years of undergraduate and graduate students of 2 years of study are accepted until November 20. To participate, you must register using the link and attach a video or multimedia presentation in Russian on one of the proposed topics: “Teacher of the Future: a universal formula for success?”; “The formula for the success of great Russian scientists and cultural figures”; “Successful lesson of the Russian language: a secret formula”; “Formula of life in modern Russian literature and culture”.
