TSPU STUDENT - THE AMBASSADOR OF THE RUSSIAN LANGUAGE IN THE WORLD
The student of the Faculty of History and Philology of the TSPU Valeria Tabrosko joined the international volunteer program "Ambassadors of the Russian language in the world", implemented by the State Institute of the Russian Language named after A.S. Pushkin (Moscow) and supported by the Presidential Grants Fund.
It’s not so easy to become a participant in the project: candidates have to complete several competitive stages, including reading any poem, showing a concert number, presenting a fragment of a lesson according to the proposed methodology. In addition, all future teachers of the Russian language undergo distance two-week training on the basis of Pushkin State Russian Language Institute, as well as three-day training at the State Institute of Applied Mathematics named after A.S. Pushkin, which includes useful lectures and master classes.
This year, all who successfully completed the tests and passed the verification test perfectly went to one of four countries - Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia - to teach Russian in schools. “I had the opportunity to visit the beautiful city of Khujand in Tajikistan, where we were welcomed at five schools throughout the week of the educational trip, - Valeria says. - A tour program was also organized for us in museums: we visited the Russian Center for Science and Culture and the Consulate General of the Russian Federation”.
In a fun way, the ambassadors introduced foreign students to the Russian language, culture and literature of Russia. The main task is to make children love the culture of Russia and the Russian language, to form a motivation for study. “I believe that this program provides excellent opportunities aimed at expanding its pedagogical potential, and makes it possible to gain incredible pedagogical experience, - Valeria says. - As a result of my first expedition, I received the badge and the status of the current program ambassador”.
