The international session dedicated to the Russian language begins on Wednesday, August 7, at Artek chidren’s camp. It is being held for the third time by Pushkin State Russian Language Institute. A hundred children studying the Russian language have gathered on the Black Sea coast. They came to Crimea from fourteen countries, the Institute’s website reports.

Foreign students and young compatriots living abroad aged 11 to 17 fought for the right to participate in the session. They were offered to prepare a presentation of their team and answer the question why they wanted to go to Artek and recite a poem on a video. Almost five thousand people from 33 countries submitted their works to the competition.

According to the rector of the institute Margarita Rusetskaya, the selection turned out to be very difficult. She noted that the competition was attended by children who knew Russian at different levels. Some of them were confident speakers while others just began to study it.

Sixteen teams won in the online competition. The representatives of Estonia, Belarus, Palestine, Syria, Hungary, Armenia, Egypt, Great Britain and other countries are among them.

The main idea of ​​the session is to show the children the beauty of the Russian language, to submerge them into Russian culture. In addition, this is a great opportunity to communicate in Russian - with each other and teachers.

Russkiy Mir reported that a special program was created for children. It takes into account the level of language proficiency of each child. Therefore, classes will be useful to everyone, even those who are just starting to learn Russian.

The three-week course will include not only Russian language lessons, but also classes on Russian culture. Children will also study rhetoric and learn to dance folk dances. Quests, flash mobs and many other interesting events are also planned during the session. Teachers from Moscow and volunteers of Russian Ambassadors in the World program will take care of the children.
