Spain gets ready for 5th European Student Festival "Friends, How Wonderful Our Union is!"
The Center of the Russian language and culture in Lleida (Spain) is getting ready for the 5th European Student Festival "Friends, How Wonderful Our Union is!Ф dedicated to the Year of Russian Cinema. The Festival is to be held at the health complex УKamchiaФ (Varna, Bulgaria) on September 19-24, 2016. It is arranged by the Russkiy Mir Foundation and the Foundation for the Sustainable Development in Bulgaria with support of the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Bulgaria.
The future participants of the Festival were chosen during an interesting try-out. In honor of that they planted an olive tree at the parkway of the Garden of Peace and the Mayor of Anglesola Rosa Maria Mora, local residents and children, going to such Russian schools as УAntoshkaФ at the Association of Regina Karpitskaya (Lleida) and the УAgent LingvaФschool (Salou), were present at the ceremony.
In order to support their team and under the auspices of the Union of Teachers УThe Russian WordФ, a translation and interpreting company УAgent LingvaФ and the MAXREAL company, the students who will represent universities of different Spanish towns and cities (Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Malaga, Alicante) have announced about a creativity competition УWell, Student, Get ready!Ф.
During the summer holidays children going to Russian schools draw pictures, do crafts and write essays on the topic УWhen I am a studentФ while their parents recalling their student times when such words as УfriendshipФ, УhonorФ and УprideФ were so important for them, translate poems and songs about that period into Spanish. That is the way the younger generation of people can compare their lives with their parentsТ lives and use their experience for shaping their own destinies.
Anybody who wanted took part in the trivia game УWho? Where? When?Ф dedicated to the Year of Russian Cinema. The students presented their skills taking part in a talent show and the best performances are to be included into the festival program. Now, the students are to choose the captain of the team, to watch Russian films again, to read Russian classical books, and to prepare for the exhibition named УOur Directors and Their FilmsФ that will be held at the Center of the Russian Language in Lleida in late August.
