Prior to the New Year the Faculty of Philology held two video conferences with the students of Ningxia University (Yinchuan, China) and Sichuan International Studies University (Chongqing, China).
The conferences included quizzes for Chinese students on Russian language and Russian New Year traditions.
Such events are organised at the faculty on a regular basis. They help to develop international relations, promote Russian language and culture, and attract international students to VSU.
At the beginning of the conference, the participants watched a short documentary about Voronezh. Chinese students could also ask VSU students about life and studies in Russia. Our students showed some photos to illustrate the active and interesting lives of students at VSU.
The quiz included several tasks dedicated to the New Year. Students had to draw pictures, do crosswords, answer questions, and make paper snowflakes. At the end, all the participants sang a traditional Russian New Year song about a Christmas tree “V lesu rodilas yolochka”.
