Language training abroad
While studying foreign languages special emphasis is placed not only on acquiring theoretical knowledge but also on its practical application especially in the situation where the students are able to improve their practical skills in the process of actual communication with native speakers. The Faculty of Linguistics and Translation offers the possibility of training abroad to all its students, thus improving their proficiency level. This was proven by the example of the following students of the Faculty of Linguistics and Translation: Anastasia Apalyayeva, (4th year), Berenica Dilman (3rd year), Anastasia Groza (3rd year), Julia Kovalyova (3rd year), Olga Polyesko (3rd year), Victoria Taldykina (3rd year) and Ksenia Ishkinyeyeva (4th).
Anastasia Apalyayeva attended German intensive course of Vienna University. The first day was dedicated to taking placement tests and Anastasia coped with the task easily; she was placed in group B 1.1 according to the results. The course lasted from Monday to Friday; following the completion of the course, Anastasia passed the final examination successfully and received the corresponding certificate.
The students did not miss the opportunity to visit Vienna places of interest in their spare time.
The third year students Berenica Dilman and Anastasia Groza visited China in summer. They studied Mandarin at Zhejiang International Studies University in Hangzhou. The teachers and students developed warm and friendly relations which contributed to the achievement of high results. The students spent their leisure time getting acquainted with Chinese culture and traditional cuisine, visited places of interest and simply had a good time.
Following the summer courses, our students received the certificates attesting the completion of the course at Zhejiang University.
