UTMN held an official opening ceremony of the international Summer School "Business Russian". The UTMN rector Valerii Falkov and the leading professors of the university took part in the ceremony as well as the Hungarian Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary in Russia, Janos Balla, the Consul General of Hungary in Yekaterinburg, Sergey Szucs and other Hungarian guests.
Such respectable representatives of the friendly state took an interest in the ceremony due to the fact that 16 of 21 students participating in the course are from top Hungarian universities. They are also accompanied by 3 students from Vietnam and 2 from France.
Welcoming the audience, the honored guests pointed out not only the importance and the fruitfulness of such international cooperation, but also the great opportunities for gaining new knowledge that the format of the summer schools provides for the students.
"It is important to outline that the “Business Russian” Summer School’s program has a number of outstanding features compared to other summer educational projects", says Elena Yuzhakova, Head of the Department of International Relations, UTMN,. - Our partnership with Peoples' Friendship University of Russia made this possible. UTMN and RUDN scientists and specialists have developed the program and are now implementing it together. In particular, RUDN teachers conduct the first week classes."
It is also worth mentioning that the international students study Business Russian not only in theory. They have already become familiar with the document management in the Tyumen Region Duma. As part of the excursion to Tobolsk they discovered interesting information about the "Business Correspondence in Tobolsk Gubernia". Students will study the "tour guide language" during the excursion to the Archaeological Conservation Area on the Andreevskoe Lake near Tyumen...
Many other educational and entertaining events have been organized for the participants. The summer school ends on August 13th and all students receive their certificates of successful completion.
