The days of the Russian language took place in two Japanese universities, REGNUM reports. The philologists of the North-Eastern Federal University (NEFU) organized the events for the students from Sapporo and Kansai universities
According to Svetlana Petrova, who heads the department of Russian as a foreign language, such events help to increase interest in learning Russian. She was convinced that students from abroad would find out more about Russia and its regions.
Russia sparks a lot of interest among young Japanese people, who are enthusiastically immersed in the Russian language. They read books of Russian classics and know well the music of Viktor Tsoi.
Russkiy Mir reported earlier that Japan was interested in developing the ties with Russian universities. This issue was discussed during a meeting with the new Consul General of Japan in Khabarovsk Masanori Fukushima, which took place at the Northeastern Federal University.
