Learn Russian by playing: students from Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt compete in finals


19.09.2019


The connoisseurs on the Russian language from the federal states of Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt met on September 3 at Immanuel Kant School in Falkensee (Germany) in the competition for reaching the finals of the Learn Russian by Playing cup.

Eleven teams of schoolchildren came to the regional round of the federal cup. They made their way through the in-school qualifying rounds, where they excelled in their knowledge of the Russian language. A trip to the finals in the Europa-Park amusement park in Rust at the invitation of the main sponsor of the event, Gazprom Germany, is prepared for the winner.

The regional tour in Falkensee was the beginning of the active phase of the Russian language competition. There will be sixteen selections in the next eight weeks; they will be held in ten federal states and, in addition, one each in Austria and Switzerland.

This year alone, 4,200 students from 202 schools in three countries took part in the cup. Since 2007, this competition has attracted both schoolchildren studying Russian and their teachers.

The  Learn Russian by Playing Federal Cup is one of the longest-running projects of the German-Russian forum in bilateral relations.

A significant contribution to the development of professional sports in Europe has been made by Russian players who stepped into the sporting field under the guidance of their parents either at home or in a strange land. Emigrants founded clubs, played at packed stadiums as if they had been sports superstars, and led teams to championships as coaches and managers. Sports clubs are still established by our compatriots today.
