Call for participation in Russian language contest starts in China


The fifth contest of Russian language experts started in China, IA Baikal Media reports. Leading topic this year is Language as a connection with the Silk Road.

Applicants should direct their requests for participation until 20th of July. Among organizers are Russian Embassy in Shenyang, Heilongjiang University and Vladivostok State University of Economics and Service.

The organizers states that the contest facilitates reinforcing friendship between Russia and China and enhances collaboration development in all directions. Besides, it helps promoting educational exchange programs.

The first contest took place in 2009 and since then it has become popular in China and beyond.

It is worth reminding that students in China prefer learning Russian to other languages. Specialists with Russian language skills are in high demand on the labor market due to strengthening of Russian-Chinese relations. Moreover, joining the Silk Road Economic Belt with Eurasian Economic Union influenced this fact a lot.
