Russkiy Mir

Having worked online for months, Russian language courses around the world are setting to actively accepts students into offline groups. The Russkiy Mir contacted teachers from different countries and found out that the lockdown and experience in e-teaching opened up new opportunities for specialists in Russian philology. Some of them conceived the idea to develop a system of electronic textbooks and globalize the programs; others initiated active engagement of lecturers and guests from all over the world for their online classes, and also mastered advanced training for teachers in virtual environment.
Starting from Peter the Great days, Russian glossary of nautical terms was compiled based on Dutch terms.
