A "Russia-India" teleconference with Indian students is scheduled to take place on September 22 at 14:30 Moscow time (17:00 Indian time). The event is initiated by the International Media Network TV BRICS in cooperation with the Modern Russian project. The moderator of the teleconference will be head of the international outreach project “Modern Russian", MKR-Media, Tamara Skok and Svetlana Kostenko, journalist of Omsk television company.
The video lesson themed "Let's hold hands, friends!" will feature students from leading Indian higher education institutions that provide opportunities to learn Russian as a foreign language, including the University of Hyderabad and the Jawaharlal Nehru University. Students from courses at the Russian Centre of Culture and Science in Chennai will also take part. About 40 participants are going to participate.
An opening statement will be made by Gennady Rogalyov, director of the Russian Centre of Culture and Science in Chennai.
During the teleconference students will be able to enrich their vocabulary with words and expressions frequently used by native speakers of Russian, will get a lot of interesting and useful information about folk crafts, traditions, customs in various regions of Russia, and will also learn how word morphemes work in Russian and will take part in the interactive activities.
For several years now, TV BRICS has been actively cooperating with the leading universities of the BRICS countries regarding the promotion and popularisation of Russian as a foreign language. For example, in 2018 and 2019, teleconferences “Russia-Brazil” and “São Paulo-Omsk” were organised.
In July 2022, a meeting with the editors of the International Media Network TV BRICS was held at the Fluminense University of Brazil. Students of Russian as a foreign language at the Fluminense University of Rio de Janeiro were able to ask questions about the work of TV BRICS in Brazil and other BRICS countries.
In addition, TV BRICS films “Unknown Stalingrad” and “BRICS in Space” were screened at the Russian-Brazilian school in Rio de Janeiro in 2022.
The “Modern Russian” international outreach project has been successfully operating since 2007 and contributes to improving the level of speech culture of the population in 638 cities, of which 366 are Russian cities and 272 are near- and far-abroad cities. Since September 2015, the project has been operating as part of the MKR-Media media holding company. The main motive of the founders of the “Modern Russian” project was the desire to raise the status of the Russian language and to draw the attention of the population to the current state of the language culture.
