The 11th International Qualification School Modern Pedagogical Technologies in Teaching Russian as a Foreign Language began working in Varna on August 19. The International Qualification School is one of the most successful projects of the Varna Free University named after Chernivtsi Khabra and the Russkiy Mir Foundation. 

The project started in 2009, the year the Russian Center was opened at the university. Since then, the school has transformed from national to international and has become one of the most famous and significant methodological schools in the field of teaching Russian as a foreign language (RFL) in Europe, aimed at improving the methodological training of young specialists on the verge of their professional fulfillment as teachers of the Russian language.

The key theme of the school is innovative pedagogical technologies and their application in the process of teaching the Russian language. The learning technologies of RFL – the museum, sightseeing, problematic, theatrical, musical, design and portfolio technology - are correspondent to modern ideas of personality-oriented learning. They create the conditions for the realization of creative potential, the development of innovative thinking and linguistic competence.
