Alexander Pushkins birthday celebrated in Buenos Aires


A poetry evening is organized by Russian Center of Science and Culture for this date. Argentinian winners of the Read Pushkin project participated in the event. They read passages from his poem Ruslan and Lyudmila and The Tale about Tsar Saltan.

Students of Russian language training courses, working at the subdivision of Rossotrudnichestvo in the capital of Argentine performed together with them. Skilled Russian language users as well as beginners came out at the stage. According to the organizers, it has been evident that they don’t have a perfect command of the language, however, this disadvantage was fully compensated by their sincerity and efforts. Apart from Pushkins poems, the lines from Yesenin and other Russian poets were cited.

Besides, a gala ceremony of providing Russian language certificates was arranged at the Russian Language Day, which coincides with Great Russian poets anniversary. The certificates were handed to students, who successfully passed tests and exams checked by experts from St. Petersburg State University. Thirty-four students passed the tests.

It is worth reminding that Read Pushkin project was organized in eighty countries across the world. The main task of this campaign was promotion of the Russian language abroad and popularization of the Russian culture among young generations.
