South Ural State University invites international students from China to take part in a new project – a photo competition “Russia and China: Country – Language – Culture”. This event is organised by the SUSU Puskin Institute Research, Education and Coordination Centre.
The associate professor of the Department of Russian as a Foreign Language of the Institute of Linguistics and International Communication Olesya Sharafutdinova noted that this project of Puskin Institute Centre will allow to demonstrate peculiarities of the Russian language and culture, their interconnection with the Chinese language and culture in the most popular form.
“Today in the age of digital transformations large texts are hardly perceived. But the information transmitted with the help of pictures is available to anyone regardless of their level of proficiency and thus, it can be considered as a means of popularization. Moreover, photos facilitate learning the Russian culture, since they help to create a visual image of Russia and our people”.
All Chinese students staying in Russia and abroad can take part in this photo competition. Participants can choose a storyline for their pictures on their own based on the topic and aim of the contest. The best pictures will be posted on the website of the Puskin Institute Centre and in social media.
